A popular U.S.-based food chain is coming to Winnipeg. P.F. Chang’s is an Asian restaurant concept that started in the 60s and then in 1993 Philip Chiang and Paul Fleming joined forces to bring the multi-unit restaurant concept to the masses. The new Winnipeg location would be in the Polo Park area of the former Target site. P.F. Chang’s in the first mainstream chain in the U.S. to honor and celebrate the 2,000-year-old tradition of wok cooking as the center of the guest experience.
Since inception, P.F. Chang’s chefs have been hand-rolling dim sum, hand chopping and slicing all vegetables and meats, scratch cooking every sauce and wok-cooking each dish, every day in every restaurant. P.F. Chang’s new Farm to Wok® menu highlights its wholesome, scratch-cooking approach and introduces new dishes and drinks for lunch, happy hour and dinner. Today, P.F. Chang’s has 210+ U.S. restaurants, including airport locations, plus over 95 restaurants in more than 25 countries across the globe.
The green-light on this project should come at the April 8 meeting of the Assiniboia Community Committee. No opening date has been made public.
