P. F. Chang's Philippines: Dining at a Modern Chinese Bistro (Shangri-La Plaza East Wing)

November 18, 2015 Metro Manila, Philippines

P.F. Chang's arrived in the Philippines sometime three years ago.  It was formerly in Alabang and Fort Bonifacio Global City and now, it is in Shangri-La Plaza East Wing.

There was a lot of rave about this at firstBut, after all the publicity, the fame toned down.  Since we have tried almost all restaurants in that wing, we figured we'd give it this US Asian-themed Chinese Bistro a try.

Food

Starter
seared ahi with wasabi guacamole
Seared Ahi with Wasabi Guacamole (595 php)
The Seared Ahi with Wasabi Guacamole was really good!  In fact, because of this starter, we felt very optimistic and excited for the upcoming dishes that we ordered.

vietnamese lemongrass chicken spring roll
Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken Spring Rolls (275 php)
 The Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken Spring Rolls was just okay.  I guess I was expecting the lemongrass chicken to stand out but it didn't.

Dimsum 
xiao long bao
Xiao Long Bao (125 php)
We were really disappointed with the Xiao Long Bao.  Just look at it.  The soup has already escaped.  And, because of that this is by far the worst Xiao Long Bao we've had yet.

Soups
hot and sour soup
Hot & Sour Soup (245 php)
The Hot & Sour Soup is my all-time favorite soupFor me, this is passable. 


egg drop soup
Egg Drop Soup (195 php)
The Egg Drop Soup is a better choice if I had to choose between the two.

Salads
chicken chopped salad
Chicken Chopped Salad (385 php)
The Chicken Chopped Salad has two options for dressing: Ginger or Sesame-Vinaigrette.   We chose the former and it was a great choice!

Chicken
kung pao chicken
 Kung Pao Chicken (395 php)
The Kung Pao Chicken is our family favorite dish so we have tried many versionsThis was good but we've had better.

singapore street noodles
Singapore Street Noodles (425 php)
We enjoyed the Singapore Street Noodles.  But, price-wise, it is one expensive noodle dish.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Sad to say, I failed to appreciate the why P. F. Chang's beings a US Chinese bistro chain have to be brought here in the Philippines.  Being in an Asian country where there are a lot of Chinese and China, Hongkong and Taiwan being our neighboring countries, I think there are many better options already found here.
