What Happens When Chinese People Eat Panda Express for the First Time?

When it comes to international cuisine, it seems the big chain restaurants here in the US get a bad rap for their culinary renditions of the cultures they are trying to represent.

We’ve heard time and time again that the fast food giant Panda Express doesn’t serve authentically Chinese food. But for the first time ever, we got to see the reactions of people who are familiar with real Chinese food try Panda Express for the first time.

The verdict: It was split pretty evenly down the middle, with some taste-testers giving the various dishes a thumbs up, and some giving them a thumbs down.

So it turns out, the restaurant doesn’t get it quite as wrong as we’ve been led to believe.
