Last month P. F. Chang’s Restaurant, the world’s largest Asian food restaurant chain celebrated ten years here in the Middle East. We were invited to the celebrations where we got the opportunity to interact with Co-founder Philip Chiang and also got to try new dishes from the menu.
P. F. Chang’s has more than 300+ locations around the world and we visited their outlet in La Mer Dubai for the special dinner event. Their La Mer outlet located in the Central part is a spacious two-storied venue with an outdoor dining area.
All the media guests were seated in the first floor of the vibrant venue. Philip Chiang was there to receive us and we heard the success story from the main man himself.
Being vegetarians, we only tried the veg dishes. The veg dishes are limited in the menu and would like to suggest them to add more vegetarian dishes. P. F. Chang’s has also introduced a bento box for the kids.
We liked both the veggie starters Potato Honey Chili and Korean Corn Pie from their new menu. For main course we had Emperor’s Feast, a medley of steamed and stir-fried veggies with tofu served along with rice and Lo Mein the classic Chinese noodles. Both the dishes could have been a bit more flavorful.
Finished off our dinner with simple and comforting Banana Spring Rolls and relaxing Jasmine Green Tea.
Overall, it was a good experience, the main highlight of the evening was meeting the down-to-earth Philip Chiang.
