Behind Terracotta Horses and Chinese Warriors

So the mystery behind those Chinese Terracotta Warrior Statues is finally revealed! Before, I didn’t bother to approach one to check what it is because I just found it too scary. Hehehe. I do admit that it was a nice strategy for P.F. Chang (the restaurant) to make budding customers interested.

Look at that horse!

Opening its first branch in the new wing at Alabang Town Center, one wouldn’t miss P.F. Chang’s China Bistro with its two horse statues beckoning its customers at their entrance. The design of the place was very modern adorned with some ancient looking Chinese artifacts. On to the food!

I am not a big fan of Jasmine tea in general because I find the taste too flowery. So when the server recommended this, I was a bit wary. But lo and behold, it was amazing! The taste was sweet but it still has that very distinct taste of Jasmine. I do think that all the ice helped too. I couldn’t stop drinking it!

Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps (P 285)

As an appetizer, we ordered their chicken lettuce wrap which had ground chicken, mushroom, crispy rice sticks, green onions and water chestnuts. On its own, it tasted good. But with the sauce, it was absolutely delicious.

Viola! The filling is truly pièce de résistance! 🙂
P.F. Chang’s Fried Rice (P 200)

Not sure about the price of their fried rice since we had everything on it (pork and seafood). I can’t remember if there was an additional price for that but anyhow, it was delicious! It’s a meal on its own.

Hunan-Style Hot Fish (P 650)

This hot dish was literally a bit hot. It was a bit spicy which was a good match to their fried rice. It had stir-fried vegetables (thin slices of carrots and some snow peas).

Salt & Pepper Prawns (P 695)

Paired with spicy mustard sauce, this one is a real treat. I personally love prawns so yes, I’m biased. But seriously, this one was a nice balance to the semi-spicy dish we had (just as long as you don’t dip it to the sauce. I dipped one and boy was my tongue burning).

Overall, food was great! It really is a great fusion of American and Chinese dishes. The serving size of their food are good for sharing. Plus, the service is really GOOD. All the recommendations and personal faves of our server was a hit. Every customer was well attended to.

So as my family and I dine to the tune of Queen’s “We Are The Champions” (this was really playing in the resto), I’ll definitely “keep on fighting eating till the end”. 🙂
