Every time I visit a new restaurant and see Dynamite Shrimp on the menu I always end up ordering it. Funny enough, the description of it is similar on pretty much every menu – ‘Battered shrimp tossed in a spicy sauce’. Most places haven’t even bothered to change the name because of its crazy popularity. Most serve the Dynamite Shrimp in a martini glass while others serve it on a bed of cellophane noodles. Some add roasted sesame seeds to garnish and others use green onions. There are plenty of variations that I have tried but none of the places have stood out or have managed to come even close to the original Dynamite Shrimp served at P.F.Chang’s.

The ones here are served hot and man are these the best! Their spicy sauce has been consistent over the years and I don’t think we’ve ever been disappointed. It was an achievement for me to convince a friend who had never tasted seafood in his life, to try these out and he ended up loving them too!

Below are some of the places where I’ve tried the Dynamite Shrimp. I can tell you that they were decent but wouldn’t recommend the ones at Chopsticks or Fuddruckers (were too dry, or the sauce wasn’t hot enough and they certainly did not taste fresh.
