We’ve always been big fans of PF Chang’s but we have only taken our oldest daughter there once. The food portions are huge and until recently there was not a children’s menu available.
PF Chang’s has recently launched a wonderful kid’s menu with all meals priced less than $5 and we were excited to receive an invitation to review it. The girls were very excited about driving into “the city.” We headed to the PF Chang’s located on West End Avenue in Nashville, very close to Centennial Park and the campus of Vanderbilt University, for those of you not from Middle Tennessee. The girls even dressed up for the occasion, wearing their finest dresses. It was cute, let me tell you.
The PF Chang’s Kid’s Menu is a four-page folded color menu with fun activities for kids. My 7-year-old busied herself with the word find puzzle and my 4-year-old loved the Warrior Wisdom coloring page.
The menu itself is very simple:
- Kid’s Chicken – served with honey or sweet and sour dipping sauce ($4.95)
- Kid’s Lo Mein – egg noodles stir-fried with chicken ($3.95)
- Kid’s Chicken Fried Rice – a kid favorite, served without veggies ($2.95)
- Baby Buddha’s Fest – snap peas, carrots and broccoli served steamed or stir-fried ($2.95)
My 7-year-old chose the lo mein and my 4-year-old chose the kid’s chicken. They were very excited to try out their chopsticks! My girls can sometimes be picky eaters, so I was curious to see how they would really like the food. As you can see, my 4-year-0ld, who I fear some days will turn into a cheese dog, loved her meal. I’ve spent way too much money through the years on fast food kid meals, so it was great to see them enjoy a dining experience that didn’t include a plastic toy, but plastic chopsticks (which we took home as a souvenir from our meal.)
My iPhone doesn’t take the best photos in low-light, but you can see Miss A about to chow down on her chicken. She loved the chopsticks.
I was impressed with the price of the selections, all under $5, as well as the portion size. Both my girls had leftovers to take home. The meals include a kid-size drink and are intended for children 12 and younger.
The next time you plan a family meal out, check out PF Chang’s new kid’s menu. It’s reasonably priced AND your kids will love the experience.
I received a PF Chang’s gift card, but no other compensation, for this restaurant review.
