Ever wondered why the vegetables are so soft and easy to chew? Current and former employees are sharing secrets behind the amazing cuisine.
A user on Quora shared the secret behind the restaurant’s vegetables and how you can cook them for yourself at home.
“They do have chopped up veggies and boil them in a pot for a couple of minutes, then they threw into the wok with season and their base,” wrote the user, who worked as a Shift Leader.
“They boil the vegetables (Broccoli, Cabbage, and kale) for about a minute and they toss it into the wok with ginger garlic and k-starch/water mix.”
The user added that the starch is potato and corn. Once the vegetables are put in, the worker mixes them up and serves them.
The shift leader also said that they recently learned how to make the veggies at home.
Boiling the vegetables before sautéing makes them very easy to chew and you can do it yourself if you’re patient enough.
One thing you might not have even thought about when buying food at Panda Express is how important etiquette is when it comes to the serving spoons and tongs.
For workers, it can be nerve-wracking to have customers watching their every food as they prepare orders. Many workers seek advice before going into their first shift.
A Reddit user gave some wisdom on this very subject, writing: “I always cringe at how new employees hold the spoodle [sic] and tongs and everything, but you only improve as time goes by.”
The user continues, telling potential workers to follow “SSSP” or stir, serve, stir place.
“…with the spoon placed having the ‘bowl’ part touching the upper left side and the handle resting against the bottom part of the right dish handle. Its [sic] all about appearance at panda [sic].”
