P.F. Chang’s, a popular Chinese restaurant which originated in the U.S., opens its first branch at the Alabang Town Center on January 19. Guess what, I haven’t eaten in this restaurant but the fact that they have 200 branches scattered across the United States, Mexico, Puerto Rico and even the Middle East makes this place a must-try.
The press release says popular dishes at P.F. Chang’s menu include the signature appetizer Chang’s Chicken Lettuce Wraps; all-time favourite Mongolian Beef made from US Angus beef caramelized in the wok with garlic and scallions; and the flavourful Northern-Style Spare Ribs.
Worth noting is the fact that the restaurant is often mentioned in the sitcoms South Park and the Big Bang Theory owing to the fact that the creators of the series often dine there. Will P.F. Chang’s stand out in Manila’s restaurant landscape already populated by big foreign chains as well? Let’s see!
To provide excitement to P.F. Chang’s opening in the Philippines, a Spot the Warriors Facebook contest was recently held giving anyone with a camera the chance to become among the first in the country to experience P.F. Chang’s. The grand prize winner for each category gets P10,000 worth of gift certificates to the restaurant. Three winners per category will each win P3,000 P.F. Chang’s gift certificates. All of the winners get VIP passes to the restaurant’s Gala Night on January 17, 2012 for a rare chance to meet restaurant founder Philip Chiang.
