Who hasn’t heard of P.F. Chang’s in Dubai. One of the most popular Chinese restaurants in Dubai. A brand which people like to boast about after their meal at the restaurant. P.F. Chang’s serve American Chinese cuisine that serves unique and signature dishes of their own by using modern fusion and constant introduction to new textures and flavours.
There is a giant horse statue in front of their restaurant which depicts the Emperor’s horse. The restaurant is usually packed with diners and busy. The waiting can be seen fast moving with their trays. The interiors are lit dim and just enough light for your table.
From the drinks we enjoyed the shanghai surprise very much. Aunty chang’s frappe is thick but not a mesmerizer as their Shanghai surprise. It wasn’t sweet enough for me.
We were then given these sauces that had to be mixed together to get the spice and taste to our liking. And these sauces do add magic to their dishes. The giant chicken noodle soup was delicious and quite surprised to see the size of the soup. It can easily be served upto 5 people.
Heard a lot about their dynamite shrimp. When you are in this restaurant, it is a usual sight to see their dynamite shrimp being passed around. It’s the most happening starter they have on their menu. Infact this is their no.1 seller. But I was surprised that it wasn’t as spicy as the name would say, Just decent enough that even my kid could easily eat them. The shrimps were juicy and well marinated and had a nice touch of flavour to it.
They had two different menus when we visited them. One is the chinese new year menu and the other was their original menu. Above starters are from their Chinese new year menu. All of them were very different and will surprise your senses with it’s unique flavours. The spicy chicken wings are not be missed and it had that dash of spice on it that was irresistible. They were simply finger licking good. The crunchy sushi roll was one of a kind. Love the crisp on it. Dip in their magical sauces and it was a wow. The cabbage rolls stuffed with chicken didn’t have much flavour to it by itself unless you use the sauces provided.
The Ahi tuna crisp was light and cripsy. After the spicy chicken wings, my next favourite is their chicken dumplings. Again it’s because of their unique touch of spice and flavour. Just love this one.
The Pad Thai was a wonderful blend of eggs, vegetables and non veg and you can a expect a top class dish here. The Mongolian beef was not really impressive. The beef didn’t taste fresh enough and was less tender too. Chang’s spicy chicken didn’t reach my high expectation. I picked the Chang’s spicy chicken from the menu simply because it had Chang’s name on it but it was just another ordinary chicken dish. I suggest pick something else instead.
The traditional dessert was not disappointing at all. Bananas never tasted so good. Rolled in cinnamon, sugar wrapped and deep fried. It was served crispy and hot along with a cold ice cream which was a nice contrast. Click here to visit their official website. Click pictures below to see them in full screen view:
