Pf Changs...singapore Street Noodles A Must Have!

Recommended Posts

I don't eat at PF Changs often b/c it is 20 - 30 minutes from my house, but we did tonight. I usually eat Phillips Better Lemon Chicken, which is very good. Tonight I decided to try something new and had the Singapore Street Noodles (rice noodles) and I was amazed...WOW!!! Noodles with carrots, tomotoes, chicken, shrimp and a curry sauce. My non-gluten-free Step Dad & Mom tried it and they both commented on how good it was too. Finished dinner off with the flourless Chocolate Dome with raspberry sauce...OMG...TDF!!

If you get a chance to try this dish out, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I used to eat at P. F. Chang's all the time before I started gluten-free. I was so happy to find that they have a gluten-free menu, and the first thing I tried was the Singapore Street Noodles. Since they were so good and I felt fine after eating them, I haven't tried anything else yet! I've had them about 3 or 4 times now.

Be very careful at PF Changs. I used to go once a week but had such a bad experience on Friday night I refuse to go back. To make a long story short, I ordered the gluten-free singapore street noodles off of the gluten-free menu and they brought me the gluten version. I even confirmed with the server when he brought the noodles that they were gluten free and he said they were. I could tell they were not gluten free since they had some fried stuff on top which I have never seen on the gluten free version. I got my waitress and she confirmed with the kitchen that the dish was NOT gluten free. I complained to the manager. I wasn't mean or rude but I said I very narrowly avoided getting EXTREMELY sick. I can now no longer trust them when they bring me a dish and claim it is gluten free since apparently that means nothing. If the gluten had not been so blatently obvious I would still be doubled over sick from my meal on Friday. Since I am pregnant I am risking more than my own health right now so I just can't take the chance of eating there again. :(

That could happen anywhere. It only takes one person to screw things up, no matter how many precautions are in place.

It's good that you complained to the manager. I hope that they figured out how it happened so that this won't happen again, at least at that particular restaurant.

I went to PF Changs for the first time last Tuesday. I met up with two friends who were in from out of town.

(I had just introduced them via email when one sent an email, mentioning that he was changing airlines -he's a pilot - I knew another kayaker who was a pilot for the new airline. My firend ended up training my friend who was new to the airline. Small world. )

I don't know either one super well, I've paddled with both 5-8 times, but they are both really nice guys. I asked for the gluten-free menu, and of course ended up answering a few questions about Celiac/Gluten-free. then Dan said," Hey, why don't we all order gluten-free so we can share and try different things". I thought that was super, super, super cool. I really enjoyed my meal, spending time with the guys and eating everything on the table.

My Favorite was the Singapore Street Noodles. We also had a chicken dish, sort of fried? And a beef and broccoli dish. Yummy.

Chocolate dome was great too!

I just went to PF Changs last wednesday with my non-gluten-free boyfriend for his birthday.

We go there alot for special occasions, because it is one of the only places that i can eat and feel safe doing so.

we had such a great evening, we shared the gluten-free lettuce wrap things and i got the gluten-free better lemon chicken and he what he wanted, then we shared the gluten-free flour less chocolate dome...amazing!!!

I had no reactions to anything and the evening was one to remember...not only was it his bday, but he surprised me with pearl earrings, necklace and bracelet! so sweet!

anyways..pf changs is amazing and im hoping to go back for my bday next month!

I'm sort of sad to say something negative about PF's because I think their food is amazing--but I had a going-away party at PF Chang's Boston ( I moved for the summer ) and I got glutened after ordering off the gluten free menu. I asked for the Pf Chang's gluten free version of the crispy chicken (sort of looked like General Tsu's--can't remember what they called it). It was very good, but I could sort of tell half way through the meal that it wasn't gluten free...the texture was..wheat-y (Ive been gluten free almost since birth so I'm pretty familiar with what gluten free stuff is like). Or if there wasnt wheat in the actual stuff there must have been cross contamination. And I was sick for 3 days afterwards. Couldn't have been the soy sauce either, because they brought out special gluten-free stuff for me. It was a bummer because I was so excited they had a gluten free menu.

i finally had the singapore street noodles for the first time cos of the recommendations on this site - SO GOOD! i used to think chang's spicy chicken was my favorite but now this is it!

quick question about the lettuce wraps: is the gluten free version supposed to have the rice stick noodles in it? cos last week i got them and they were in it, then this week i got them and they weren't.

The chicken you are referring to is all gluten free, even on the reglar menu...it might have been cc.

WE went here for lunch today - first time - was fantastic! My little girl was so happy to be eating out, first time in a very long time!! We all ordered gluten-free so we could share, what fun!!!! We had the luttuce wraps, Singapore Street Noodles, the spicy chicken, like general tso's, moo goo gi pan, and the wonderful chocolate desert!! Hoping to go back sometime next month, it is about 2 hours from my house. (I have my fingers crossed that I feel as good tomorrow as I do today!)

quick question about the lettuce wraps: is the gluten free version supposed to have the rice stick noodles in it? cos last week i got them and they were in it, then this week i got them and they weren't.

astyanax: Yes, the lettuce wraps are suppose to have the rice noodles in them, not alot but there are in there.

You can go to the website and view the specialty menu..it will tell you what ingredients are in the item.

Fiddle-Faddle: Oh, and Thanks for the recipe!! I will be trying this sometime soon!

I had an awful experience last week. I ordered the gluten free street noodles and when they arrived they seemed different. The server assured me that they were gluten free and checked with the manager. After I had eaten half of it, she said o ya, those are egg noodles. I was glutened. Be very careful at PF CHangs.

Updated Information about the Chang's Spicy Chicken. In August P.F. Chang's changed the supplier of their chili paste which is found any many of their dishes. The item is still on the gluten free menu, but the taste has changed. This signature dish now has a strong vinegar taste paired with the distinct flavor of chili paste. If you have enjoyed this before then you would know that this was a sweet and spicy dish.

The managers and wait staff were not notified of the change and many still do not know about it. I have been eating at P.F. Chang's once a week for many years and this is my favorite dish. I noticed the change and originally the manager stated that they had not changed the dish. Then he spoke to the chef and found out about the ingredient change. Again it is still on the gluten free menu and I did not have a reaction, but someone reading this may need to be aware of the change. Also the manager at our regular location said that if people email or contact the company that they would likely make a correction. You can visit their web site and ask questions or send in your comments.

The chili paste is an ingredient in several menu items and those of us with intolerances/allergies should be aware of the change. Also know that the wait staff and managers were unaware of the change and it is always best to check with the chef if you have concerns.

We also had a bad experience at the PF Chang's in Columbia Maryland. The lettuce wraps were fine but my girlfriend got sick off the gluten-free Salmon Steamed with Ginger. Sadly, we may never go there again.

I don't eat at PF Changs often b/c it is 20 - 30 minutes from my house, but we did tonight. I usually eat Phillips Better Lemon Chicken, which is very good. Tonight I decided to try something new and had the Singapore Street Noodles (rice noodles) and I was amazed...WOW!!! Noodles with carrots, tomotoes, chicken, shrimp and a curry sauce. My non-gluten-free Step Dad & Mom tried it and they both commented on how good it was too. Finished dinner off with the flourless Chocolate Dome with raspberry sauce...OMG...TDF!!

If you get a chance to try this dish out, go for it. You won't be disappointed.

My non-gluten-free husband and I went there for the first time and the gluten-free menu looked good enough for him to be willing to share dishes with me. We ordered the chicken lettuce wrap, the Singapore stree noodles, and lemon scallops! Delicious! and I had leftovers to take for 2 lunches! He enjoyed it too and we will be back. Next time less food so I can get the chocolate dome.

After reading so much about Pf Changs I would really like to try it but never thought there was one close to home. But just recently have heard there is one in either Vancouver or Portland. Does any one know of this and where they might be?

Thank you,

Grump
