I have a PF Changs craving. Anything in Manhattan with good lettuce wraps?

I admit that PF Changs isn't exactly great "Chinese" food, but every now and then some of us get the craving for their lettuce wraps and good clean, american-style chinese. Is there anywhere in Manhattan with similar food, without taking the ferry to West New York?

  1. I believe Wu Liang Ye has something like that. I had it years ago there. It had chicken, pine nuts, corn, maybe celery.

    1. Our Place Shanghai Tea Garden and California Pizza Kitchen serve them as well

      1. Chin Chin, and I think maybe Tse Yang. It's called Chicken Soong.

        1. Asia de Cuba used to do good Lettuce wraps. Haven't been there in years though, so no clue.

          1. I haven't tried it at Wu Liang Ye, but it's on the menu. The minced squab lettuce wrap at Ping's is excellent. I need to find a place that makes a good minced pork & clam version. I think Tai Hong Lau at 70 Mott used to do it, but they've gone way downhill in recent years.

              I've recently had the lettuce wraps at Wu Liang Ye. While they're definitely different from the PF Changs Lettuce wraps, they're still really good and the sauce that comes with it was perect for the filling, imo.

                I'll second the wraps at WLY. Nice texture, flavor and sauce. I could go for some right now....
