Our overall feeling about Panda Express was that the food seemed way too greasy to have as little calories and fat as their web site promises. Because of this, we would ALWAYS count extra calories, fat (and points) for meals eaten there. Here's our bottom line:
The Good...Egg Flower Soup (2 WW Points):
We tried and loved this stuff. It's a fairly filling, thick broth with bits of egg and corn tossed in! Each delicious serving has just 80 calories and is well worth it.Mixed Veggies (1 WW Point):
The vegetables at Panda are great! They're very fresh tasting, and made with a sauce that's saucy enough to give the veggies flavor, yet light enough to be guilt-free. For just 70 calories, we say these things are a fabulous option.
Veggie Egg Roll (2 WW Points):
If it really has just 80 calories and 2.5g of fat, it's the find of the century. It tasted good, but ours was really greasy. Watch out!
/color>Chicken & Mushrooms (3 WW Points):
This dish isn't bad. It has pieces of chicken, mushrooms and zucchini. Panda says it only has 130 calories and 7 grams of fat. If the numbers are right, it's great. Again, we felt that this dish seemed a bit oily./color>**Overall notes.
We say you're safest here with soup, veggies and whichever chicken dish looks the lightest and least greasy. And we'd definitely recommend counting extra calories when eating here! Some of the chicken dishes appear to be fatty.
