Disclosure: Thank you P.F. Chang’s for the date night and the delicious food! Hubs and I are still going through the classes and procedures for becoming licensed foster parents. The other night we went to our last class and afterward, to celebrate, we went out for a little date night! We rarely get these moments alone and I was really excited to spend time with him and check out the summer menu at P.F. Chang’s! These items are meant to pair perfectly with different beverages, like the new Pink Cherry Cosmo, Spicy Paloma or Sam Adams Seasonal Beer. We came in just an hour before the restaurant closed and my husband was worried because he thought the staff might be upset. As a former server, I knew coming in a full hour before closing was totally fine and jokingly said something to the hostess and server- they were super sweet and assured my husband they were glad to have us. Let’s get to the good stuff. THE FOOD! We started with the Vietnamese Lemongrass Chicken Spring Roll. These might be my favorite thing we tried (if I was forced to pick just one). They were huge but not heavy. Light and fresh and I loved the cilantro. Our server mixed up some sauce based on our wants (medium) and told us how we could make it spicier if we wanted. The spring rolls came with a yummy sauce too, and I liked using both. We ordered the Chiang Mai Curry Noodles with Chicken and it was a really big portion; perfect for sharing (and pairing! It went well with the Sam Adams Hubs ordered). As you might expect, with curry right there in the name, that this is a dish with a kick. We love spicy! Truthfully, this wasn’t even as spicy as I expected to if you don’t love super spicy this might still be ok, ask your server! I was really pleased with the addition of brussel sprouts in this dish; it really complimented the noodles and chicken well. P.F. Chang’s has an amazing Perfect Pairing Giveaway! The contest will run from July 11 – August 18. A winner will be chosen by August 29. Each participant will have the opportunity to win a $100 gift card and become eligible for the grand prize of a trip to Boston for an exclusive Sam Adams Brewery Tour for two, followed by a 4-course pairing dinner at the P.F. Chang’s downtown Boston.
