P.F. Chang’s invited my family and I to go try the new menu items that celebrate the year of the Monkey…….and it was tasty. They have some really great items and it was hard for me to make a choice but I was really happy with my choice.
Monday February 8th officially Kicks-off the year of the Monkey and P.F. Chang’s is celebrating by hanging traditional Chinese red envelopes filled with free offers on trees near its restaurants. Five lucky winners across the country will open an envelope with free P.F. Chang’s for a year!

P.F. Chang’s Chinese New Year menu features six signature menu that symbolically represent the luck of the new year, including:
• Sichuan Chili Garlic Chicken
• Hong Kong Style Sea Bass
• Long Life Noodles & Prawns
• Butternut Squash Dumplings
• Mandarin Cake
• Monkey Mule (a unique twist on the traditional Moscow Mule featuring Monkey Shoulder whisky and house-made ginger beer
I tried the Long Life Noodles & Prawns which was seasoned so very well.
I also tried the Monkey Mule which was a great combination of sweet and ginger…YUM!
The final thing we tried was the Mandarin Cake. And this was the expression on my son’s face.
At the end of our tasting we received a red envelop and were told not to open it. We have to come back on a certain date for the waiter to open it for us. No matter what we will win something. So I’m pretty excited to get to go back and have them open it.
Throughout the entire month of February, P.F. Chang’s will donate $1 (up to $100,000) to Boys & Girls Clubs of America each time someone shares their Chinese New Year wish on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter using #PFChangswish and when a guest orders an item off the limited-time Chinese New Year menu.
