Pei Wei Overeaters

It’s always random the hours that restaurants have on weekends. We failed at going to one place that wasn’t going to be open for a little bit, so we headed over to Pei Wei instead. I hadn’t been here in awhile. I don’t remember being able to get beer there before, but you definitely can. And you can get big ass beers.
We totally got bamboozled by the menu. We read Japanese Chile Ramen and totally thought this was going to be a bowl of ramen noodle soup. Total order fail! Instead, this just ended up being a noodle dish with ramen noodles in it. You cannot imagine the disappointment. Anyhoo, this was a heaping bowl of egg noodles with a slightly spicy soy mirin sauce, scallions, garlic, bean sprouts, carrots, onions, lime, cilantro, chile peppers, and tons of tofu that we’d picked. It tasted fine, but it was totally not what we thought it would be. So it made us a little sad.
This is the Thai Dynamite with crispy chicken. It’s cooked in a sriracha sauce withh lime, scallions, garlic, red bell peppers, carrots, and thai basil. While there were some visible scallions, the carrots and bell peppers were few and far between.
I’m a creature of habit with certain restaurants, so here’s my Japanese Teriyaki rice bowl, which is my favorite dish here. It’s got a nice thick sweet soy glaze, onions, napa cabbage, carrots, spinach, scallions, and sesame seeds. And as usual, I got mine with brown rice, some of the best brown rice, ever! Why would two people order three entrees? Well, we thought we were going to share a nice bowl of ramen. Cue the sadface! At least we got to drink the crap out of some mr. pibb.
