P.F. Chang's opens at LAX

Los Angeles residents and those traveling through the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) have a fresh, new and made-from-scratch option for Southeast Asian-inspired dining with the opening of P.F. Chang´s at Tom Bradley International Terminal, the company said.

The location will be the fourth airport site for the popular Asian brand, following successful launches in Atlanta, Detroit and Tampa.

The upscale casual restaurant maintains its focus on guest comfort, warm hospitality and attentive, personable service. The a-la-carte menu offers a variety of handcrafted signature dishes — all prepared using only the freshest ingredients. Most dishes at P.F. Chang´s are cooked in a Northern-style Chinese wok at 900 degrees, creating a “wok hay” or “breath of wok” and a mix of unique smoky, caramelized flavors and crispy textures that can only be achieved using this ancient technique.

Founded in 1993 by Philip Chiang and Paul Fleming, P.F. Chang´s is the first internationally recognized multi-unit casual dining restaurant concept 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 sauces and wok cooking each dish, every day in every restaurant.
