Today we are sneak peeking on the KETO Pei Wei Menu! We will be looking at our Keto Dirty favorite Asian dishes and sides and checking out the Pei Wei nutrition info so that you can know what to order. 

We are continuing our series on Keto Fast Food Ideas because y’all – we are busy people. Today, we are talking Pei Wei Asian Diner. Pei Wei has recently introduced something us in the KETO diet world love.. You guys, Pei Wei is now offering cauliflower rice and it is LEGIT! As a long time fan of Pei Wei, they do several things right. Their food is always fresh to order. The biggest issue I have with Pei Wei is that the Pei Wei menu changes WAY too often! So let’s keep cauliflower rice on their menu and look at some other options when eating Keto at Pei Wei Asian Diner.

Keto Friendly Pei Wei Menu

We are writing this post in May 2019. I say this, because you guys – really the Pei Wei menu does change often. And yes, I am still bitter they took the coconut curry off their menu because it was legit. Anyways, let’s get to it.

Pei Wei Nutrition and Meal Size

So something to note, the Pei Wei nutrition information that is listed below is for the entire meal. If you have eaten at Pei Wei, you know that the meals are huge. We typically order a regular size bown and either eat family style or plan on taking home leftovers for additional meals! This is a great way to maximize your value.

Keto at Pei Wei

Here are Keto Options from the Pei Wei Menu:

Rice Bowl with Cauliflower Rice

You can now order ANY Pei Wei rice bowl with cauliflower rice rather than the traditional white rice or brown rice! There are 2 specific cauliflower bowls that are specifically made with cauliflower rice that we ordered: Cauliflower Power Bowl and Cauliflower Fried Rice.

If you want to keep it simple, you can order a side of cauliflower rice and a protein of your choice.

Cauliflower Power Bowl 

The Cauliflower power bowl is a newer option at Pei Wei. I ordered this during my last visit. I was able to make it extra spicy and add in additional protein – since I knew I would be eating over the course of several meals. You can choose your protein with this, I chose steak and chicken. Make sure you clarify that it is grilled chicken that you want!

Here is the Cauli FLOWERPOWER Bowl description from Pei Wei:
Fresh cauliflower rice made in-house from whole heads of cauliflower with white meat chicken, carrots, red bell peppers, snap peas, onions, scallions and ginger with a tamarind and chile soy glaze and garnished with fresh-cut Asian slaw.

Pei Wei allows you to customize your keto bowls. So if you don’t want the sauce, or want it on the side – no problem! Want extra protein, sure! You will pay for the additions, but the diner is really great for anyone with allergies or are just picky like myself.

Cauliflower Fried Rice 

The Cauliflower Fried Rice is another Keto Pei Wei menu option. I also tried this and if you are a fan of fried rice, the cauliflower fried rice will not disappoint!

You can choose your protein with this, I chose chicken.

Fresh cauliflower rice made in-house from whole heads of cauliflower with soy sauce, scallions, egg, red bell peppers, bean sprouts, carrots.

Signature Chicken Lettuce Wraps

If you look at the Pei Wei Nutrition – you will see that the numbers are off the charts in regards to carbs and sugars.

Here is what the typical lettuce wrap includes:

House-ground white meat chicken, wok-seared with shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, scallions, garlic and soy sauce. Served over crispy rice sticks with crisp iceberg lettuce.

How to Order

Don’t fret! You can customize your meal at Pei Wei, so this is what I suggest:

Order chicken lettuce wraps, no shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts – just scallions, garlic and soy sauce. Say NO to the crispy rice sticks!

House-ground white meat chicken, wok-seared with shiitake mushrooms, water chestnuts, scallions, garlic and soy sauce. Served over crispy rice sticks with crisp iceberg lettuce.

Also, if you LOVE PF Changs Lettuce Wraps – then you will love Pei Wei’s version. They are very similar (and owned by the same company.)

The biggest challenge is finding a dipping sauce. If you do soy sauce – check the carb count. Also the chili paste has ZERO carbs, so that maybe a dipping sauce option for the Pei Wei chicken lettuce wraps.

Hot and Sour Soup

Edamame

The steamed Edamame is legit. If you are looking for more protein, these have it.

Pei Wei Tea

So this is random, but I need to point out the yumminess of the Pei Wei Tea. Pei Wei offers 2 tea options outside of the normal tea that you really should try if you are a tea lover! Both have ZERO carbs – so even you strict Keto people can get down with these teas!  I like to drink these iced with a few Stevia packets: Mandarin Orange Green Tea  and Chai Spice Black Tea. Chai Spice Black Tea is my absolute fave. If Pei Wei sold this by the gallon, I would totally buy it – not kidding!
