Post Labor Run Feast

Posted on September 7, 2013 by under Food and Drink.    

Misty, Brian, and I were hungry after the Labor Run so we decided to have lunch at Pei Wei. Doc Greens next door was a contender, but Misty doesn’t like “rabbit food” as she calls it. She’s missing out. Doc Greens has some really good food.


Anyways, here are some pictures of our lunch…


Eggrolls were good but greasy. I think we are getting spoiled because we’d been making lumpia here at home and we are always really careful to drain all the oil off.


I had the spicy Korean with chicken. It wasn’t as spicy as I was afraid it would be so that was good. The crazy thing about Pei Wei is that the actual dishes look exactly like they do in pictures. At least this one looked like it went from the poster to the table.


Brian had the chicken fried rice. It was just okay. Not as much flavor as the other fried rice we’ve had. I think as far as fried rice goes there are several great options locally. This doesn’t really rank.

Misty had the Thai coconut curry with shrimp. It looked and smelled good. Perhaps I will try that one next time.

The food at Pei Wei won’t blow you away, but it’s not bad. I wouldn’t mind eating there again. If you are looking for authentic Asian, this isn’t the place to go. There’s lots of other options in town. Definitely try some of the local mom and pop joints because they’re usually better than the chains.

Now, if you are looking for fast Asian food that’s not a hole in the wall then you’re probably at the right place. The concept is a lot like Noodles & Company where you have signature dishes and then you pick what kind of meat (or none at all) you want added to it. Then they also have small plates and combos — lots of options. I’d say it’s worth checking out if you’ve never been.
