Panda Express

According to their website:

"Our entrées are prepared using a chicken base; we do not offer vegetarian meals."

The chicken base "is used as a flavor enhancer."

Here is a list of general allergen information, including what contains egg:

Executives at Panda Express should read the book: The China Study. I hear it's a best seller in China now.

I've never been in a Panda Express fast Food Joint. I bet they are swimming in hydrogenated Chicken broth. I bet the smell inside would tell you they use a lot of processed chicken juice- Nasty stuff -doesn't it take a lot of preservatives to keep it from going bad?

At least they answered honestly.

can you find out about other fast-food chinese places, like pick-up stix? this is very informative.

Wow, I had no idea that Panda Express has NO vegetarian options!! Thanks for this info, I will definitely be passing it on to my vegetarian friends.

Hi Meghna, Glad you found it helpful!

Dear "Anonymous",

The Pick-up Stix guest relations department told me that I need to contact an individual store and manager. They said they did not have the information. If you like, email me the particular place you are interested in since options can sometimes vary from place to place.
