P.F. Chang's has it all figured out: all of the flavor and style of China, with none of the weird dead ducks hanging in the windows. Despite the fact that it's a chain, P.F. Chang's offers fresh and flavorful Asian fare--particularly excellent are the crab wontons, the now-trendy lettuce wraps and the orange peel chicken. They can even make a tried-and-true standard like fried rice interesting and delicious. Add some banana spring rolls for dessert, and China doesn't seem so far away.
