Happy Friday! Today’s blog post is about a lot of happiness via PF Chang’s
happy hour specials. This popular chain restaurant’s happy hour menu is properly titled “Triple Happiness: Drinks, Dim Sum, Street Faire”
First up on the triple happiness menu is their various drink offerings. I got Auntie Chang’s Frappe. It is a refreshing and tasty alcohol free drink with pineapple and orange juice blended with bananas and strawberries and a touch of honey.
Aside from the various liquids and libations, PF Changs also has quite an extensive dim sum and street faire menu.
The crab wontons presentation was very nice. It is a pretty plate of six crispy wontons that is filled with crab meat, minced red and green bell peppers, green onions, ginger and garlic. I liked the accompanying spicy plum sauce. It’s a very sweet and sour type of dish with the crab wontons being the sweet and the plum sauce as the sour. 😉
Chang’s lettuce wraps is one of the most popular appetizer dishes at PF Changs and a best seller at their happy hour. They have a chicken version and a vegetarian version. Since it’s a Lenten Friday, the vegetarian lettuce wraps were the choice for tonight. The lettuce toppings are wok seared tofu, mushrooms, green onions and water chesnuts on top of crispy rice noodles. I was happy to see a non-meat version and liked the tofu based dish.
Another crowd favorite is their spring rolls. It’s two egg rolls filled with various vegetables and there is sweet and sour dipping sauce on the side. It’s a very traditional type of egg roll. Simple yet good.
All of the above were great but my personal favorite is the crispy green beans. The green beans are coated with a tasty tempura batter. It’s served hot and fresh. There is a slightly spicy dipping sauce that accompanies the dish. It’s like eating crispy veggie fries.
PF Chang’s Triple Happiness Happy Hour is definitely one that brought lots of happiness and plenty of smiles this Friday! 🙂 🙂 🙂
