I wandered into a Chinese place in Pasadena called Chinese Express a few weeks ago for a quick lunch. What I found was an eerie semblance of a Panda Express. Even down to the colors of the uniforms.
Chicken with Green Beans and Orange Chicken
Tofu and Japanese Eggplant
Even the vegetables are identical to Panda Express
The orange chicken had more breading. It was more like chicken donuts than chicken candy. Interestingly, the one dish that was not a Panda copy was the best - Chicken Curry.
