PF Chang's - Las Vegas

Chicken lettuce wrap

Food is always at center stage in any family gathering. Good times together are usually associated with where and what you ate. This weekend's luncheon at PF Chang's in Las Vegas was no exception. It was truly memorable not only for the shared stories, the laughter, the hugs and beso beso, but for the selection of dishes which our famished group devoured in good stead. For starters we had light wonton soup with shrimps and vegies and chicken lettuce wrap. The combination of fresh lettuce and minced chicken with a little bit of hoisin sauce was a "no guilt" sandwich.

Stir fried eggplant

There were two choices of eggplant dishes on the menu and we ordered both. I liked the ground chicken and eggplant best over the spicy stir fried eggplant (we requested a milder dish) because the latter had a sweet sauce. Everyone raved about the walnut shrimps with honeydew. Also on our table were plates of Mongolian beef, Cantonese chow fun noodles, and house fried rice.

Chocolate dome

Sadly there was no room to try the fancy desserts on the menu like the chocolate dome with strawberries and the cheesecake. My cousin had been to the bakery Kamaaina Fancy Treats in Henderson and bought a custard pie, a guava cake and boxes of assorted malasadas for us to take back to California. They were nice enough at PF Chang's to let us eat our pie and cake. The guava cake was light and a delight.

PF Chang's is located at 4165 S. Paradise Road Las Vegas, NV 89169 Phone: (702) 792-2207. They have a new location at Planet Hollywood Hotel on the Strip. Kamaaina Fancy Treats is at 9th Eastern Avenue #103 in Las Vegas.
