At the end of December, Panda Express opened a new location in Cherry Hill, on Route 38. More specifically, it is in the right side parking lot of the Walmart Shopping center, in a new dedicated building.
Panda Express is a fast-casual “American Chinese” restaurant offering a variety of well known and unique to them dishes. If you’ve been to Pei Wei, it’s a similar menu model… and the Panda Express fills a void in Cherry Hill with the Pei Wei having closed. Panda Express continues to grow the chain, and has over 2,000 locations!
In a ordering style that is becoming more and more common in newer casual eateries, there is a step-by-step systematic approach to ordering;
- Style; Bowl, Plate, Bigger Plate, Kids..
- Sides; Rice, Vegetables, Chow Mein
- Entrees; Variety of Beef, Chicken, and Vegetable dishes
- Extras; Such as potstickers, egg rolls
Other eateries such as Mission BBQ and Chipotle have variations of this food serving model…. which while Chipotle really has it refined down to a pattern, I think Boston Market was first.
The restaurant itself is brand new, modern and bright and should attract a lot of new patrons.
