KUNG PAO CAVEMAN?

Six of us went to the Knoxville Travel Show today that was held on the Convention Center near the World’s Fair site. It was $5 to get in and we picked up lots of brochures and free travel gear. The highlight, if there was one, was the Holland Great Land cruises to Alaska. My wife and I have wanted to go back for over 10 years.

Holland has a tour that is boat, train, and bus that would be great if we could afford it. The trip lasts 21 days with 2 nights in Denali National Park! I think we started saving today!

Anyway, Judy’s sister Terri and her husband Steve joined us for supper (that’s dinner to you Yankees) at P. F. Chang’s, which is one of my favorite places in Knoxville. It wasn’t quite caveman, but Caveman has been wanting some seafood with spices, some nuts, a little brown rice, and some Kirin Ichiban.

We began (and I forgot to thank them for buying the appetizer) with CHANG`S CHICKEN LETTUCE WRAPS, which is quickly cooked spiced chicken served with cool lettuce cups and hot sauce.

I had the KUNG PAO SCALLOPS AND SHRIMP, which are quick-fired with peanuts, chili peppers, and scallions. My hot favorite! The only other thing I might try instead next time was what Steve ordered. He ordered a new dish called SHRIMP AND SWEET GLAZED WALNUTS, and it was very tasty!

The plate photo in no way represents the total meal…that’s just what I moved to my plate showing off with my chopsticks! Believe me; you will be full when you leave!

As usual, no room for desserts!

Looks good. Do they have something called General Tso's chicken there? It's my favorite thing. Spicy hot and sweet, all at once. The lettuce wraps sound like spring rolls. Good stuff. Man, yer gonna make me go back to the buffet early.

They probably have an equivalent, but you can check out the menu to be sure.

Yeah, the lettuce rolls are probably similar...they have walnuts in them.

Wow, that's a cool web site. I'll have to check out one of their places in Austin.

Don't be put off by the fancy look of the place or the linen table cloths and napkins...you can go as you are...at least here! Very friendly place.
