If you were to ask me what I’ve missed most since becoming gluten-free, the answer would be simple, Chinese food. That’s right, it’s not some of the obvious choices like bread, pasta, cakes, etc. I have a serious love for Chinese food, and have been on the hunt for a replacement for my favorite cuisine. I’m not alone in my love. My entire family has spent many a meal either ordering take out or eating at one of our favorite Chinese restaurants, but stopped doing so due to the limited number of options available for me. When my dad reported on a great Chinese food restaurant he had been to that had a lot of gluten-free options, we had to give it a try.
On our first visit to Peter Chang Restaurant located in Stamford, CT, the large menu shocked me. Not only were there pages upon pages of dishes, there were a large amount gluten-free options. Out of curiosity, I started counting the gluten-free dishes, but stopped at 20, distracted by the gorgeous pictures on the menu, and delicious smells coming from the kitchen.
My family and I ordered several dishes; they shared some of my gluten-free items, while ordering some gluten-full ones for themselves. The gluten-free items we ordered were the Chicken with Lettuce Wraps, Mongolian Beef, and Vegetable Egg & Scallion Fried Rice. The food arrived, and I couldn’t believe how good it was. Seriously, it was amazing! Everything I ordered was packed with flavor, and it was difficult to stop eating even after I was very full. I had the leftovers packed up, and finished them the next day. My family also enjoyed their meal, raving about the gluten-free (and gluten-full) dishes they had eaten.
As a family, we first ate at Peter Chang Restaurant about a month ago, and have already returned for an equally delicious visit. The restaurant has become a new staple, and I can’t wait to continue sampling the menu.
