I’ve long been a huge fan of P.F. Chang’s China Bistro. The food is high quality, and delicious! Much to my great pleasure post-diagnosis, they have a gluten-free menu! This is fantastic, not only for the sake of the menu itself, but also because you can find P.F. Chang’s restaurants in many cities across the country. And since my work schedule can sometimes have me on the road, it’s comforting to know that I can find a place where I can eat a tasty and safe dinner.
They have a dedicated wok station for GF food. The sauce is made with garlic, ginger, rice wine, chicken stock, Sichuan powder, salt, sugar, and wheat-free soy sauce. And they “flour” their chicken and thicken their marinades with corn starch.
Some of my personal favorite dishes include the Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Moo Goo Gai Pan, Chang’s Spicy Chicken, and the Singapore Street Noodles. To see the rest of the gluten-free menu, visit their website here. And to see if there’s a P.F. Chang’s near you, use the website’s locator feature here.
It turns out that the same folks that own P.F. Chang’s also offer up Pei Wei Asian Diner, a more budget-friendly, casual dining experience (like Seattle’s Best Coffee versus Starbucks, or Toyota versus Lexus). The food is still great, though. And while Pei Wei’s gluten-free menu is very limited (compared to both the full standard menu and P.F. Chang’s GF menu), it’s a gluten-free menu none the less, and I’ve happily eaten there many times. I recommend the Pei Wei Spicy Chicken. To see if there’s a Pei Wei near you, use their locator on the website.
Between P.F. Chang’s and Pei Wei, you can be sure to find a gluten-free, safe and delicious Asian dining experience. I certainly have.
