Stopping for a quick bite in the middle of nowhere, I spotted a Panda Express for dinner. Normally, I am OK with PE and am usually satisfied with their Orange Chicken, Kung Pao Shrimp, and Fried Rice. This time I tried the new Beijing Beef. It is bad. There was too much cornstarch and too little beef. The sauce had near zero flavor and the texture was not even "crunchy" as advertised. I was expecting the dish to actually taste like crispy wok-fried beef, but was sadly mistaken. My Orange Chicken and rice were great.
Ironically, my fortune cookie said, "Treat Yourself to Something of Quality."
