Pei Wei. What does that even mean? I don't know. But I do know that it's a great option if you're feeling the need for a meal visit to the orient.
Granted, it's gimmicky. Very Americanized. And sometimes down right cheesy. But they produce a very fresh meal that's pretty consistent and definitely friendly to those who like "made to order".
At times they can be a little heavy on the saucing. So I've learned to ask for mine on the side. But it's worth it!
And, they even remember what you order when you call in. Call it a sales pitch or creepy stalker tactic, when you phone in an order, they store it. And when you call again, they ask you if you want to order what you ordered last time...and then they repeat it to you.
Look, we don't have a PF Changs. And sometimes you just need something else beside Bangkok. Pei Wei is a great alternative, even if a chain.
