Recently my family and I went to P.F. Chang’s over by Jordan Creek Mall. I had eaten there in the past, but this was the first time I had the kiddos with me. So, I really didn’t know what to expect as far as a kids menu. Looking over the menu I was happy with what I saw. The first thing that caught my eye were the relatively cheap prices. Most restaurants around the area want to charge you 6 to 8 dollars for spaghetti, mac and cheese, pizza and the same old regular things you see on kids menus everywhere. At P.F. Chang’s the highest priced menu item for kids was $4.95 and they had some new options for the kiddos to try. We went with the Kid’s Lo Mein (noodles) and the Kid’s Chicken Fried Rice. Both dishes were large portions and the kids loved them! Plus they got to try and eat with some starter chopsticks, which made for a messy, but fun experience.
