For my third and final Summerlicious meal, I went to P.F. Chang’s at the Shops at Don Mills. I had been there once before, and really enjoyed it, so lol though I like to try new places, I wasn’t disappointed with the choice. It’s hard agreeing on a restaurant between 6 girls including one that’s 8 months pregnant!
The menu had great choices, something for everyone. And the best part is (and what makes them stand out) is that the Summerlicious offerings are all a part of the regular menu, so if you find something you love, you can get it again.
To start, I went with the Buddha sticks. They were a fresh take on classic onion rings, and they were really good. The dipping sauce had some heat, but it all worked well. And the portion was huge! It was the same size as if you would order it off the menu. It could easily be shared with 3 or 4 people.
For my entrée, I chose the red chilli shrimp. I was thinking of the sesame chicken because I tried it when I was there my first time and it’s so good, but I’m glad I went with the shrimp. The dish was spicy, but flavourful (as opposed to the spice for the sake of spice kind of heat). There were lots of chillies throughout, and a very generous serving of shrimp. The noodles were cooked perfectly, chewy and firm. I also tried the tofu that one of my friends got and it was really good as well. And again, a huge portion.
To end, my preggo friend and I shared the Peanut Butter and Jam cake, and the chocolate cake. The PB&J cake was really good, light and fluffy…great way to end the meal. The chocolate cake was dense and fudgy, but after everything we had already eaten, I was pretty full so the PB&J won out for me (and I’m a chocolate lover!).
We had such a great meal. The service was excellent, the food was hot and fresh and the best part? We all took leftovers home!
And with that, Summerlicious comes to a close for me. But you still have until the 20th to check it out!
