"I just hate that we can't seem to find good Chinese food from a clean kitchen," she said. As regular readers of the Restaurant Inspection Reports may have noticed (we know we have) there seems to be a far greater number of demerits more often in certain cuisines versus others. Because of that, we find it difficult to want to eat at a select number of restaurants (Asian included) throughout The Woodlands. Among Asian restaurants in more recent inspections, P.F. Chang's and it's little brother, Pei Wei (with two Woodlands-area locations), have fared pretty well, so we opted to give them a try again. While the foods are quite similar, the menu at Pei Wei differs and is definitely more of a fast food joint versus P.F. Chang's which offers full service, including a bar, along with a much classier interior; and The Woodlands location is very nice. Both establishments offer a 'Rewards Program' based on receiving 10 points per dollar spent, and Pei Wei generates a free en-tree at 1000 points while P.F. Chang's doesn't offer an entree until 2000 points have been earned.

A popular brunch spot in The Woodlands is The Black Walnut Cafe and we stopped in for a Saturday Brunch. Though the line at the counter wasn't very long when we arrived, the uncoordinated movements of the staff made it seem as though it was. Black Walnut Cafe is a order-at-the-counter, get a hockey puck, and seat yourself kind of place. Not that it's immediately obvious that it works that way; you have to realize when (and if) you grab a menu by the front door that your next step is to head past the bar and find the service counter all the way at the back where you can order. Black Walnut Cafe doesn't actually offer a "Brunch" menu, but several items make the crossover from the "Breakfast/Lunch" and "Lunch/Dinner" menus; so she could have breakfast, and I had lunch.
