Refreshers enhance the beverage menu, leveraging mocktail trend
P.F. Chang’s added a new line of mocktails to the menu, in addition to Dim Sum items. P.F. Chang’s Refreshers enhance the beverage menu by making mocktails (non-alcoholic version of cocktails) available to its guests. Of course, customers also have the option to spike Refreshers to make them an adult beverage. “Our new Refreshers appeal to guests who want to step outside of traditional soft drinks and have the cocktail experience without the alcohol,” said Tana Davila, P.F. Chang’s senior vice president of Marketing.
The new, Crispy Avocado Rolls and Mongolian Potstickers are Dim Sum additions for the Scottsdale, Ariz.-based ‘Farm to Wok’ chain. The Crispy Avocado Rolls usher in spring-like appetizer options. Creamy avocado, edamame and water chestnuts fill these springs rolls, which are served with a sweet orange honey dipping sauce. And the Mongolian Potstickers bring hand-folded dumplings to the table. These dumplings innovate sweet and savory combinations. Mongolian beef filling are at the heart of these dumplings, which are paired with a sweet and savory dipping sauce.
Adding these two, new items bolsters P.F. Chang’s Dim Sum menu, which already includes Cecilia’s Pork Dumplings, Hand-Foled Crab Wontons, House-Made Chicken Egg Rolls, and Vegetable Spring Rolls.
