5 keto-friendly meals you can order at p.F. Chang’s

Look, no one's saying you can't eat delicious, dare I say even delectable, crave-worthy food on the keto diet (you can sign me all the way up for Jenna Jameson's steak dinner with a side of arugula salad).

But some days, you just want something quick, easy, salty, and satisfying-you want Chinese food from P.F. Chang's.

Well, frankly, you just can't have many of the most drool-worthy Asian dishes on the keto diet (shout-out to rice, noodles, and egg rolls-ILYSM).

But does that mean you have to miss out on delicious, soy sauce-laden foods? Not at all (soy sauce, by the way, contains 0.8 grams of carbs per tablespoon, per the USDA). You can absolutely enjoy some of your Chinese food favorites (think: seafood, eggs, and vegetables). Start with these keto-friendly menu items from P.F. Chang's. 

1. Egg Drop Soup Cup


Egg drop soup is literally just broth and eggs, so of course this one is keto-friendly (this one's got carrots and green onions too). The "cup" options are significantly smaller than the "bowl" options (the calorie counts vary by 230 calories), so if you're a fan, go ahead and order a bigger portion.

Per serving: 40 calories, 1 g fat (0 g sat fat), 560 mg sodium, 6 g carbohydrates, 2 g sugar, 0 g fiber, 1 g protein.

2. Hot & Sour Soup Cup

If you're looking for something a little more involved than egg drop soup, try P.F. Chang's Hot & Sour Soup-which has tofu and chicken for protein, along with bamboo shoots and eggs. Unfortunately, these soup options aren't on the creamy side-but they're still pretty damn low in carbs.

Per serving: 70 calories, 2 g fat (0 g sat fat), 570 mg sodium, 0 g carbohydrates, 1 g sugar, 0 g fiber, 4 g protein.

3. Northern-Style Spare Ribs


Yes, these are technically an appetizer, but honestly, they're ribs-so they could also double as part of your meal. Another thing: Since meat itself has very few carbs (if any at all) most of the carbs here are coming from the sauce, so it might not be a bad idea to ask for a little less.

Per serving: 710 calories, 21 g fat (12 g sat fat), 1090 mg sodium, 12 g carbohydrates, 10 g sugar, 1 g fiber, 37 g protein.

4. Shrimp With Lobster Sauce

Yes, this one is on the higher end of the carb spectrum (22 grams-but remember, some keto diets allow up to 50 grams of carbs per day!), but it's still totally worth putting on this list. Another thing: Seafood is naturally low in carbs (like meat)...and honestly, does anything sound better than "lobster sauce?" No, I didn't think so.

Per serving: 500 calories, 27 g fat (5 g sat fat), 2740 mg sodium, 22 g carbohydrates, 5 g sugar, 5 g fiber, 38 g protein.

5. Baby Buddha's Feast, Steamed

Hear me out on this one: There is no shame in ordering from the kids menu as a grown-ass adult (honestly, why isn't this item on the main menu anyway?). Basically, it's just steamed veggies, but add it to one of your orders of soup (or those Nothern-Style Spare Ribs) for a whole meal.

Per serving: 60 calories, 0 g fat (0 g sat fat), 50 mg sodium, 12 g carbohydrates, 3 g sugar, 5 g fiber, 4 g protein.
