Panda Express Sanford (Vegan Guide)
One of my favorite fast-food restaurants for vegan food is Panda Express. This may come as a surprise to some since, for years and years, Panda Express was not a vegan-friendly establishment at all. Thanks to the help of petitions from PETA and advances in plant-based mock-meats thousands across the country can now indulge in veganized traditional American-Chinese fusion foods!
Read my guide below for your guide to eating vegan at Sanford's location of Panda Express!
Beyond The Original Orange Chicken
Recently, Panda Express rolled out nationwide a vegan orange chicken through their collaboration with Beyond Meat.
A mix of kale, cabbage, and broccoli.
Main that are not served the Sanford location, but you may find at other locations:
- Eggplant Tofu
Back in the day, these stir-fried noodles used chicken stock but they are now totally vegan.
Steamed White Rice
Steamed Brown Rice
NOTE: Their fried rice is NOT vegan. It has egg in it.
Vegetable Spring Rolls
Finely chopped cabbage, carrots, green onions, and Chinese noodles are used for the filling. Pairs well with the sweet and sour sauce.
Sweet and sour sauce
Yes! This lovely crunchy vanilla cookie is totally vegan.
Panda Express does share surfaces with animal products; therefore, cross-contamination can/will occur. The woks are shared but are wiped out after each item
