Vegan Options at PF Chang’s (Updated 2022)

Vegan Options at PF Changs

P.F. Chang’s has a decent lineup of vegan options but menu items may vary by location so we suggest letting your server know you are vegan and asking how they prepare what we have listed below. 

The controversy is that P.F. Chang’s has made a statement that all of the vegetarian items contain zero animal products; however, that may not be true for all locations, according to communication we have received from a few of our VeggL users. 

That aside, there are a few entree’s to choose from and the Lettuce Wraps are one of our favorite items at ANY restaurant.
