Pei Wei Asian Diner

Special thanks to "Chickuji" for telling me about this chain! On their website, Pei Wei Asian Diners are described as "a faster, more casual take" of their parent company, PF Chang's.

Pei Wei indicates which items are vegetarian on their menu with a leaf symbol:

  • Edamame
  • Pei Wei Spring Rolls
  • Blazing Noodles
  • Honey Seared Signature Dish
  • Soba Miso Rice Bowl
  • Spicy Korean Signature Dish
  • Sweet & Sour Signature Dish
  • Thai Dynamite Signature Dish
  • Teriyaki Bowl
According to their chef and culinary manager, "All of our vegetarian dishes do not contain any animal products. Our Pad Thai dish is vegetarian when the egg is omitted. I have attached a sheet which lists and explains our vegetarian menu items." He also confirmed that these dishes are dairy-free.

Here is the list that he sent, which also provides allergen information.

I go to Pei Wei often, and asked about thier Pad Thai. They told me that they make the sauce with Chicken Broth, which is why it is not indicated as vegetarian on the menu (with the little leaf sign)the noodles in the Pad Thai also include egg.

This might be a problem for some is for me!
