ANDY!!! You changed your avatar!!! LOVE IT!

I never thought much about the staffing at places like that, but you do have a point. This new place DH and I discovered, great food, and fully staffed by Asian folks. So I guess that is saying something about that place?

Asian restaurants staffed 100% with Asians can still have bad food.

Hey Sattie, my daughter bought me a Christmas Tree exactly like the one on your avatar. I blogged about it a couple of weeks ago. Here it is, it's Charlie Brown Christmas Tree:

PF Changs was also started and is owned by a bunch of Italian guys in a food conglomerate.

Now that is funny! I had no idea....

It kinda reminds me of the Texas Toast I buy on occasion, I think it is the 'New York' brand of Texas Toast made in Columbus, Ohio...

While I have to agree that P.F. Changs is not authentic Chinese food, I still like it and my friends and I go there often. The lettuce wraps, according the the wait staff, is their most popular dish. If you look around most of the customers order that. I think their new grill menu, especially the Lemongrass Prawns with Garlic Noodles is outstanding!!! One of the best shrimp dishes I've had at least at THIS particular location. Can't guarantee it'll taste the same where you live. And oddly enough, most of the wait staff is Mexican. LOL.
The food is hot, plentiful, decently priced and the service is always good. But for real authentic Chinese we go elsewhere.

We expect our Chinese restaurants to be staffed with Chinese.

Why don't we expect our Italian restaurants to be staffed with Italians?

What about seafood restaurants?

Darn!!! That is the other dish I wanted to get, but DW is not a huge shrimp fan. She will eat them, but I knew she really wanted a chicken dish so we went with that.

Thanks for the review GB. I have been dying to go there. I did go to one in FL once but it was with my husband's family. They each order and eat their dish (no sharing) so I only got to try what I picked.
