PF Chang's - what to order?

Like most folks on this board, I completely hate chains and much prefer good authentic flavors. That all said, I go to PF Chang's fairly often because it is a very convenient location for me and my girlfriends to have our girls night. Honestly, the food is usually pretty good, but there have been alot of hit or miss dishes. Their lettuce wraps, wonton soup, and fried rice are quite good. Conversely, I've had a few less than stellar dishes including shrimp with garlic sauce. So, what are some of the better dishes I should order next time I am there?

  1. I really enjoy the Mongolian Beef...I have tried it in other Chinese places and I don't like it nearly as much.

    1. I really like the Orange Beef- it's sweet, so I like to add a good dose of the hot sauce they serve.

        The orange beef is my favorite!

        The kung pao chicken and mongolian beef are also super-good.

        The Chang's chicken (their version of General Tsao chicken) USED TO be good, but they've changed it. It's in a really bland yellow sauce now, gross actually. In fact when my husband ordered it last time we were there, he asked if that was in fact the Chang's chicken, and they said yes. Seriously?

      2. I like the strip steak and the sea bass.

        If they have a duck cooker then the duck can be good. Not all P.F. Chang's have the cooker however.

        Just had lunch there, they are down the street, too easy.

        1. I'm not a big fan of chains either, but I do like PF Changs. I love the double fried noodles, and ask for them extra spicy.

          1. I like the Singapore Street noodles, minus the shrimp.
