Fortune cookies provide glimpses of the future without giving too much away, unlike magic 8 balls, which are always shouting out the exact date of your next hernia operation. Acquiesce to a palatable fate with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Chinese cuisine and drinks at Happy Panda.
Happy Panda's chefs subdue hunger with traditional Chinese dishes, vegetarian specialties, and savory combination platters. Bury mouth pearls in a meaty trove of green-pepper steak ($5.45–$8.25), or experience a spicy excursion as poultry teams up with garlic sauce to deliver a sultry flamenco strut atop palate stages ($7.75). Chefs craft dishes such as the Happy Family, which melds seafood, vegetables, and cuts of meat in the warm fires of a piquant sauce ($11.49). Tofu flaunts flexibility like a yogi in a performance review by satisfying frondescence feeders in multiple styles, including mongolian ($6.95) and kung po with peanuts ($6.95). Pair your dish with a sweet, mango iced tea ($1.75) or a Tsingtao beer ($3.99).
Chefs at Happy Panda use crunchy vegetables, sweet pineapple, and lots of Asian herbs and spices (but never MSG) to create flavorful Szechuan and Hunan dishes. They fry egg rolls, wontons, and origami swans to a crisp in 100% vegetable oils and offer a number of vegetarian dishes in addition to the roast pork, chicken, beef, and seafood options. The restaurant runs a bustling dine-in and carry-out trade, particularly during the lunch rush, when diners can choose from 30 specials served with fried rice and an egg roll or soup.
