The Cheesecake Factory

The Cheesecake Factory is a staple for celebrations and known for their extensive menu and delicious food. I am also obsessed with their complimentary whole grain bread that serve to you while you wait for your meal to come. I was interested in trying their new menu items that they call “Super Foods”. The Super… Continue reading The Cheesecake Factory

Pei Wei

pw1

Pei Wei is the cheaper version of P.F. Changs, because they are owned by the same company.  The quality of the food is the same caliber as P.F. Changs, but you will pay half the price!  It is very hard for me to find a reputable Chinese restaurant, because my husband will only eat at chain restaurants.  That is another story, but basically he won’t eat at whole in the wall restaurants or restaurants that don’t have at least 4 stars on Yelp!  So that pretty much eliminates most Chinese buffets or restaurants…but Pei Wei made the cut.

The vegetarian options are endless at Pei Wei, because you can order any of their entrees with vegetables and tofu as your meat.  You place your order, and then you wait at your table for your wok fresh entree.  Choosing a vegetarian dish is easy, because they have a green leaf picture as an indicator.

Menu

I ordered the one vegetable spring roll, and the Honey Seared entree (honey garlic sauce, chile oil, rice sticks, scallions, red bell peppers) with vegetables and tofu.  I also chose brown rice as my rice option.

Vegetable spring roll

The vegetable spring roll came out very fast (cabbage, ginger, carrots, celery, scallions, onions, black mushrooms, glass noodles, rolled in a crispy wrapper). The texture was very crispy and flavorful.

My entree came out and the tofu was very hot, I had to wait a few minutes before I could actually eat it.  I did burn my mouth a few times because I wanted to taste it. The honey seared vegetables were sweet and delicious.  I like the combination of sweet and savory in an entree.  I also like their brown rice, it is fluffy and easy to mix into the stir fry.

I always leave Pei Wei feeling like I made a healthy choice.  The meal fills me up, but does not weigh me down.

I would recommend Pei Wei to anyone, especially vegetarians.  The possibilities for entrees is endless, because you can add vegetables and tofu to anything!  Also I feel like it is a healthy choice, for when you are feeling like a light meal.
