So we are back. I took Victoria for a very well deserved short trip to the US. Main excuse was of course Tuesday's election to which we had an invitation to an election party from a few people we know in Las Vegas, our home for a few years.
Shopping and eating were the other two motivating factors. Not going to bore you with the great prices of UGGS, Neiman Marcus, etc., but I think you may want to hear about some of the food we ate.
As we did not have much time, we mostly revisited old haunts of ours where Victoria knew she is in good hands and I am happy too, because I like the places. But then, I like any place where they serve good food.
P.F. Chang's is a chinese influenced chain restaurant (or at least what America perceives to be tasty chinese food), that we patronized often for a decent meal in the neighborhood. Way back when we lived there, their GF options were limited to a small number of dishes. But things have changed.
Not only does P.F. Chang's offer a complete gluten free menu with a lot of choices, they also have installed separate cooking stations to ensure zero cross contamination.
Lettuce wraps, stir fried pork with lettuce leaves is what drew Victoria to that restaurant in the past, but this time she had Salt and Pepper Calamari, with a gluten free, light coating.
If you head to the US, look on their website to see if they have a location where you are headed. Though not nearly authentic chinese food, they do turn out great "interpretations" of Asian cuisine.
