PF Changs – The Secret’s in the Seating

The Rundown

What: $6 Cocktails, Wine, and Sake; $4 Craft Beer; $5 and $6 Apps
When: 3pm to 7pm Mon-Fri at the Bar
Where: 12090 Jefferson Ave Ste 1600, Newport News, VA 23606 (Tech Center)

Fun fact: While PF Chang’s happy hour menu clearly states that it is 3pm to 6pm, their happy hour prices are actually good until 7 so long as you’re sitting at the bar.   I don’t know about you, but this makes all the difference for me as someone working the typical 9 to 5 grind.

Everything on PF Chang’s happy hour menu is $6 or less. Drink wise, it offers something for everyone; it includes cocktails, wine, craft beer, and even sake. I personally am a cocktail girl, and so far I haven’t had one here I didn’t like.   My favorites from the current menu are the Blackberry Spice Martini and the Honey Thyme G&T.

If you’re an Asian food lover like me, I recommend the Chang’s Lettuce Wraps.  According to the menu, it’s “a secret Chiang family recipe and our signature dish.”  The flavor is unique, and the portion is generous. For me, it was large enough to call my dinner. I’m also a big fan of the Tempura Calamari and Vegetables: lightly breaded and again, great flavor.

For fellow sushi connoisseurs, I must warn you that the California Roll is pre-made (thus, in my mind… hard, refrigerated rice, although I didn’t test this). I discovered this when I was told I couldn’t have mine without cucumber. Luckily, the same isn’t true for the Spicy Tuna Roll, which I ordered instead and turned out to be pretty good.

Overall, I enjoy PF Chang’s wide selection and distinctive twists on their drinks and eats.
