This quick-serve spot for rice bowls and Asian sandwiches is a spin-off of Pei Wei Asian Diner, which itself is a spin-off of P.F. Chang's. Certain staples, like the minced-chicken lettuce wraps, have managed to make it all the way down the chain no worse for wear. They're joined by value-priced sandwiches (e.g., pounded-thin Korean grilled steak with crunchy cucumbers, carrots and radishes for $6.95) and entrées (kung pao chicken). The large seating area houses two notable guilty pleasures: a Coca-Cola "Freestyle" machine (the options are limitless!) and cute doctors from the nearby hospital.
