I’ve always been interested in the cultures of other countries, especially those of Asia. I’ve also always had a soft spot in my heart (and my stomach) for Asian cuisine. Whether it’s General Tso’s chicken or sushi, food from the Far East has always been enjoyable to me.
So, you can imagine my excitement during my trip to Orlando and the surrounding area with fellow Food Dude Damion, when we came across Pei Wei Asian Diner in Kissimmee. I was with Damion on a mini-vacation while he attempted to run the Goofy Challenge (the Disney Half Marathon and the Disney Full Marathon).
It might seem like all of the toppings would take away from the main course, but it only adds to the flavor of the chicken, which is delicious. The soy sauce is savory, you get a little heat from the chiles, and the mint cools things off. It also comes with rice sticks and your choice of rice (white or brown steamed). If you’re concerned with your figure, you can order it stock velvet, which cuts a minimum of 30% fat. Being a Food Dude, I wasn’t concerned with that, but the option is there.
So, if you’re a fan of Asian cuisine and you want to try a different eating experience, give Pei Wei Asian Diner a try. The prices are affordable (under $10 per entree) and the food is freshly prepared, and all of the dishes are made to order and customizable. Check out Peiwei.com or their Facebook page for all of their locations, but to eat like the Food Dudes visit:
