Panda Express Tests New Pastrami Bao Buns At Brand’s Innovation Kitchen

Panda Express is testing new Pastrami Bao Buns exclusively at the Panda Express Innovation Kitchen in Pasadena, California.

Pastrami Bao Buns are basically a mashup of the Taiwanese street food classic and the American deli sandwich. The hand-held dish combines slow cooked, hickory liquid smoked pork belly with pastrami spices, topped with pickled cucumbers for brightness and a sweet and savory sauce, all held in a folded, fluffy and light bao bun.

Inspired by Panda Chefs yearning to create a nostalgic and tasty hand-held menu item, Pastrami Bao Buns are being tested exclusively at the Innovation kitchen as part of Panda’s long-term innovation strategy.

Panda Express plans to evaluate how Pastrami Bao Buns are received by the public before launching the new dish on a national scale.
