First Panda Express in Japan Opened in Kawasaki
The Americanized Chinese food eatery, Panda Express landed in Japan in November of 2016. Panda Express was born in 1983 in California and has stores in many malls across the United States. Not only is Panda Express popular among US citizens, but is also popular among Japanese residents in the US as well. The Panda Express in Japan opened in the food court on the first floor of Lazona Kawasaki, which is quite close to the exit of JR Kawasaki station. The Panda Express has almost the same menu items, such as Orange Chicken, Angus Steak, and String Beans and Chicken Breast. In regards to the drink menu, they have several sodas, but they don’t have diet pepsi. In the United States, the plates are white and round, but in Kawasaki’s Panda Express, the plates are black and square. They will give you a fortune cookie, but the messages written on the papers are in English.
