Good Fortune.

Rounding out our survey of area happy hours, let’s take a look at a restaurant that, although it’s an hour away, has some of the best prices and the healthiest food around:

P.F. Chang’s China Bistro

P.F. Chang’s hours and food prices are easy enough to remember; its happy hour selections are offered for between $3 and $6 daily from 3 to 6 p.m.

Unfortunately for Oregonians, state liquor law prohibits the restaurant from discounting its drink menu to between $3 and $6 as well, as is the case in its locations in other states.

As happy hour is offered in the bistro’s bar and its main dining room, all ages can enjoy these prices.

Unlike the other happy hours we’ve seen, which revolve heavily around bar standards — meat and potatoes; chips and salsa; fried everything — P.F. Chang’s’ menu actually offers a change to get your daily serving of vegetables as well.

It’s crispy green beans, lettuce wraps, dumplings, spring rolls and egg rolls are all guilt-free. Plus, they are served in such generous portions that, depending on how many you share it with, they can easily replace more expensive entrée options; one portion of green beans, for example, can easily serve two to three.

Moreover, the menu appeals to vegetarians and carnivores alike, as several options come in meat and veggie varieties, and shrimp, beef, chicken and tuna are all represented in one form or another.

Of course, as P.F. Chang’s is located in Bridgeport Village, whatever money is saved in the restaurant is diverted to the gas tank. To remedy this problem, take a group and split the bill — it’s worth it!

Along with drive time, expect a wait once you’re there; P.F. Chang’s is popular, but it’s popular for a reason. Fortunately, once you’re seated its staff is friendly, attentive and well worth the wait!
