The highly renowned P.F. Chang’s China Bistro has opened its first Philippine branch in Alabang Town Center, making it the chain’s first venture into Asia. The press launch was held at The Street in Alabang Town Center last Tuesday, January 17, 2012.
The bigwigs of P.F. Chang’s hopped from one table to the next to converse with the guests who were the first to savor some of the restaurant’s most delectable treats.
The foods that were served on our table surely delighted my appetite.
P.F. Chang’s signature appetizer. Wok-seared minced chicken, mushrooms, green onions and water chestnuts served over crispy rice sticks and served with cool, crisp lettuce cups
Crispy shrimp tossed in a zesty sauce and served over a bed of cool sliced cabbage, lettuce and crispy rice sticks
I don’t drink alcohol, but I had a great time taking pictures of these colorful cocktails.
Tender wok-braised ribs served with a five-spice
Tender flank steak wok-cooked then quickly tossed with scallions and garlic.
Tender, diced chicken breast lightly dusted and stir-fried with a tangy sauce of sweet and spice
Tender shrimp tossed in a creamy sauce with candied walnuts and honeydew melon
Richly spiced, marinated lamb, tossed with cumin, mint, tomatoes and yellow onions
Stir-fried egg noodles with mushrooms, bean sprouts, bok choy, carrots, celery and onions
Wok-fried with Sichuan preserves, onion, chilli paste and garlic.
Ida, our server, called this the “level-up sauce.” She simply mixed everything (hot mustard, potsticker sauce, chili paste, chili oil, soy sauce and white vinegar). She said this complements all of P.F. Chang’s dishes.
Everything was delicious, but I particularly liked Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps, Dynamite Shrimp, Northern Style Spare Ribs, Shrimp with Candied Walnuts and Lo Mein.
