P.F. Chang’s Debuts 4 New Dishes & Pairs Wine with Sriracha [Infographic]

chang 2

And an infographic. Foodbeast loves infographics! They’re like stories for your eyes.

The gist behind this one is simple: P.F. Chang’s is offering a limited-time-only “Inspired” menu with four new dishes boasting “bright, bold flavors” that might otherwise be tricky to pair with wines. No worries, Chang’s takes care of that, too. By first looking at some Asian flavor staples, like lime, mint, and everybody’s favorite Sriracha, and then how they combine in the new dishes (Vietnamese Prawn Rolls, Thai Beef & Noodle Salad, Thai Basil Sambal Noodes, and Sea Bass with Tropical Salsa), Chang’s doles out the pairings with the magic of food science.

See below for more. I do not recommend this while hungry.

OUR LOOK: P.F. Chang’s Home Menu Meals for 2

I’m sure many readers out there love Chinese food, but cooking it from scratch is simply out of the question. It’s just plain intimidating! Not only is a good recipe hard to come by, so are various questionable ingredients. I am self admittedly an Asian person who can’t cook Asian food, or at least very well… So I was glad when P.F. Chang’s Home Menu sent us samples of their new frozen meal line. Pepper Steak with Chow Fun Noodles and Garlic Chicken with Dan Dan Noodles were on my menu tonight.

So how does it compare to your local Chinese takeout spot? Overall, I would say it’s on point! The meat was super tender, the sauce was flavorful, and the noodles kept their shape. And ready in 6 minutes, preparing Chinese takeout at home couldn’t get any easier. Also need I say, there was no MSG to be found? 

The only qualm to be had was that the bell peppers were too soggy for my taste and the noodles could get pretty salty after a few bites, but that was expected from a frozen meal.

Along with 5 noodle meals to choose from, there are also 7 stir fry meals available, for more information and products visit pfchangshomemenu.com.

P.F. Changs – $3pm – $6pm Happy Hour Everyday

I’m not quite sure how long P.F. Chang’s has been running this Happy Hour special, but let me tell you that I am now a huge fan, not that I wasn’t a fan of theirs beforehand. I had the sweet & sour chicken, chicken lettuce cups and crab wantons and the coup de grace was the $2 PBR which you can see after the jump. I also included a list of the rest of the happy hour menu so you can check it out for yourself.

Craving: Fried Tofu

Tofu is definitely an aquired taste, if you love it you love it and if you only kind of like it, you might not like it with everything. I personally am a huge fan after my uncle got me hooked on the tofu lettuce cups at P.F. Changes. Here we have some stir-fried tofu with a cajun and sesame seed oil dressing.
