Peter Chang Restaurants in Richmond and Glen Allen

Richmond Glen Allen Peter Chang

There are plenty of excellent places to dine out in Richmond, but if you haven't been to Peter Chang yet, you're definitely missing out. This unique Szechuan-style restaurant is a go-to destination for locals and visitors alike.

While our real estate agents prefer not to pick favorites, they can't help but rave about the outstanding dining experience at Peter Chang. Here are just a few reasons to put this restaurant on your list of Richmond's must-visit locations.

Peter Chang - An Award-Winning Chef

Since beginning his career at posh hotels in the Chinese province of Hubei, award-winning master chef Peter Chang has lived an exciting life. He has served as head chef on a popular cruise line, cooked for the Chinese embassy, and made a name for himself while cooking at the China Star restaurant in Arlington.

After receiving a few positive reviews from food critics, he virtually disappeared. For a period of time, he jumped from restaurant to restaurant across the country. With each new appearance, he gathered more loyal fans and obtained an almost mythical status. As the buzz continued to grow, so did the question, "Where will Chang show up next?"

By the time he finally settled down and opened Peter Chang in Richmond, he had earned himself a continually-growing legion of devoted followers. He now prides himself on creating the delicious and spicy Szechuan dishes that have made his restaurants so famous.

Exciting Menu Items

The menu selections at Peter Chang are sure to please your palate and leave you wanting more. Some of the most popular signature dishes include crispy pork belly, Szechuan beef, lamb chops stir-fried in chili and cumin, and duck stewed in "Ma La" sauce. The menu also includes dumplings and dim sum, hot and cold appetizers, traditional Szechuan meals, lo mein, fried rice, and popular lunch specials.

Two Great Locations in Our Community

While you're in the Richmond area, you have two great locations to choose from.

  • The original Peter Change flagship restaurant in nearby Glen Allen is located at 11424 W. Broad Street. Here you'll find a full range of menu options and a selection of beer and wine.
  • Peter Chang Scott's Addition is located at 2816 W. Broad St. in Richmond, close to the city's center. This trendy and somewhat industrial location has a slightly scaled-down food menu but is also the only Peter Chang restaurant to feature a full menu of exotic liquor drinks.

Whichever location you choose, you're sure to have a dining experience you won't soon forget.

A wide selection of restaurants is just one of the many things that make the city of Richmond such an excellent place to live and work. If you're considering making a move to the Richmond area, we would love the opportunity to show you around. Contact Napier ERA today to discuss your home-buying goals and schedule an appointment.

Some Richmond Neighborhoods Great for Families

Richmond Neighbrohoods

Our real estate agents at Napier ERA are here to assist you every step of the way as you explore homes for sale in Richmond area neighborhoods. As the capital of Virginia, Richmond is a wonderful place to live no matter if you're looking for fantastic jobs or the best schools in the state.

Richmond is truly a place where a growing family can thrive. Schools are well-funded, with a rich slate of extracurriculars and a high degree of college placement. Many of the leading businesses offer internships for rising students. And, of course, there's the University of Richmond a short hop away.

Richmond has been around since 1737, so it's no surprise it has developed several distinct and vibrant neighborhoods. On any tour through the area, the civic pride of Richmond can be witnessed everywhere in its eye-catching architecture, well-kept green spaces, and excellent infrastructure.

Finding a neighborhood that resonates with you is one of the first steps in choosing a Richmond home. There's plenty of history and culture to enjoy everywhere you look in Richmond – but which of these cozy communities is right for you?

Let's take a closer look at some welcoming Richmond neighborhoods for you and your family:

  1. Bellevue
    Bellevue is one of the most iconic local neighborhoods, combining eclectic charm with a dash of antique flair. It's a close-knit community where history and hipness mingle. Under the sight of its classical stone arch, Bellevue has been in the midst of a growth phase since 2004. Plenty of new restaurants, grocers, teahouses, coffee shops, and yoga studios have since moved in.

  2. Glen Allen
    Glen Allen is located just northwest of Richmond. An area of just under nine square miles, it combines excellent amenities and education in a single locale. CNN recognized it as one of its Best Places to Live. Nationwide appliance manufacturer Hamilton Beach is headquartered here, along with the specialty small business insurer Markel Insurance Company, two top employers.

  3. Midlothian
    The village of Midlothian is a short jaunt west of Richmond. Founded about three centuries ago, it supported the local coal mining village with affordable homes. These days, new residential developments are thriving, but some of the oldest churches and other landmarks in the region stand proudly right here. The housing stock includes some true "vintage" finds as well.

  4. Short Pump
    Found in Henrico County, Short Pump is an affluent suburb of about 25,000 residents. Over the last few years, its growth has made it part of Richmond's Far West End. Short Pump is the epicenter of some of the best shopping in the Richmond area. That expanded in 2003 with a brand new open-air shopping mall, Short Pump Town Center, which has since become an anchor of the economy.

  5. Stratford Hills
    Suburban Stratford Hills is home to about 4,500 residents. Found at the crossroads of some of Virginia's leading public schools, it is one of the safest neighborhoods you could hope for. The edge of Stratford Hills runs alongside the beautiful James River, invigorating it with a breathtaking river walk area. That serves as a hub for live music and festivals throughout the year.
