Everything Vegan at P.f Chang's (Late-2020)

PF Chang’s has a few vegan-friendly options, and it’s possible to eat a vegan-meal at their restaurants, but not all vegetable-dishes are vegan so be careful.

While P.f Chang’s has decent vegan options, enough to have a decent vegan meal, there’s other more vegan-friendly “Chinese”-style restaurants out there such as Pei Wei so if you aren’t dead-set on P.F. Chang’s and have other chains near you they may be a better choice.

Vegan Appetizers at P.F. Chang's:

  • Chang’s Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps
  • Chili Garlic Green Beans

While both options aren’t bad — actually we really like P.F. Chang’s Chili Garlic Green Beans — unfortunately the other options, such as edamame, contain dairy, eggs, or meat, and thus aren’t vegan-friendly, which is just ridiculous — why does a edamame appetizer have eggs in it at P.F. Chang’s? It’s ridiculous! 

Vegan Main-Dishes at P.F Chang's:

  • Buddha’s Feast (Stir-Fried)
  • Buddha’s Feast (Steamed)
  • Stir-Fried Eggplant
  • Spicy Miso (see below)
We’d suggest the Buddha’s Feast — it’s our favorite entree at P.F. Chang’s, as in our opinion the Stir-fried eggplant is a little too soft and doesn’t give as much of a “substantial” feeling as the buddha’s feast entree does — especially the stir-fried version.
 
As for the Spicy Miso, while it should be 100% vegan at all P.F. Chang’s we’d recommend confirming that you want it with noodles if you do, as some locations serve it as a broth (as miso is often traditionally served as such) — also if you really want to botch the miso soup ask if they’ll do sauteed mushrooms as a topping — most locations will do it and it’s much better that way in our opinion.

Vegan Side-Dishes at P.F. Chang's:

  • Brown Rice
  • White Rice
  • Steamed Carrots
  • Steamed Broccoli
  • Steamed Snap Peas
  • Fresh Fruit (bowl)

The sides P.F. Chang’s offers aren’t anything exciting, no vegetable spring-rolls or strange tasty fried junk — only steamed vegetables, fruit, and rice. They used to offer Spinach or Bok-Choy sauteed with garlic, however apparently they no longer offer it anymore — it was vegan though. It’s a shame it’s no longer an option.

Vegan Desserts at P.F. Chang's:

  • Fortune Cookie
  • Fresh Fruit

Those are the only two Vegan-friendly desserts P.F. Chang’s currently sells — while it’s not much that’s all any of the Chinese-style Restaurants Chains offer.
