Lunchtime rolled around just as the car approached the Bell Road exit of I-24. P.S. Noodle Pot!
The stir-fries are good, all the noodles we've tried are good, the eponymous noodle pot are very good. But this time, I ordered something new: the lettuce wraps.
Made with pork or chicken, I've prepped this dish before from a copycat recipe that mimics P.F. Chang's lettuce wraps. It's a multi-step, every-dish-in-the-kitchen production.
Noodle Pot's version is cooked-on-the-spot spiced ground chicken (uh, was it pork?) and vegetables with a topping of freshly fried rice noodles, all nicely spiced. Rather than separate out individual lettuce leaves, the efficient kitchen hacks off a lobe of the lettuce head, which forms a stack of perfectly shaped cups. Smart. Fill the cups with the meat mixture and munch.
The good news, besides the fact that it tastes great, is that it's listed with the appetizers and costs just $6.95. Smart.
