Chinese-American fave goes north


    Following the launch of its first store at SM Megamall in 2019, American-Chinese fast casual restaurant Panda Express is finally going north with the opening of its second store on February 12 located at SM North Edsa in Quezon City.

    The best-seller signature dishes of the world’s largest American-Chinese dining concept is finally within reach for the north folks who are craving for its famous Original Orange Chicken, a wok-tossed crispy chicken in a sweet and tangy sauce; and the classic favorite Broccoli Beef made of tender beef and fresh broccoli in ginger soy sauce.

    For those on a plant-based diet, Panda Express also has the Eggplant Tofu on its menu, which boasts of the delicate flavors of the lightly browned tofu, eggplant, and red bell peppers tossed in a sweet and spicy sauce.

    The opening also coincides with the celebration of Lunar New Year and this year, Panda Express will feature a lantern-festival themed photo wall installation, which allows customers who line up during the day to pick red envelopes from the interactive display containing freebies. Lucky customers may claim their prizes upon presentation of their winning fortunes in store. To ensure safety of both crew members and guests, Panda Express will also observe proper physical distancing and health protocols.

    For customers who wish to have their favorite Panda Express dish in the comfort of their own homes, Panda Express will be available via Facebook Messenger and food delivery apps including: GrabFood and foodpanda. Delivery locations are within Metro Manila only.
