Chinese food never fails to hit the spot, and the Painted Panda hits that spot doubly with a menu replete with fresh takes on comforting dishes. Visit this booth, and you’ll get the chance to enjoy decorative cuisine inspired by magnificent Chinese art. You’ll likely recognize some staple favorites on the menu, as this booth features plenty of returning dishes and drinks for 2023. If you love Chinese food (which is practically everyone, because c’mon, Chinese food is amazing), the idea of General Tso’s chicken shumai sounds like the bomb dot com.

WDW Magazine Communications Director, Tatjana Lazar: I enjoyed these shumai quite a bit! Each one is a perfect one-bite morsel. The chicken inside is well seasoned and very tender, with a generous ratio of meat compared to the dough. If you’re sharing dishes with someone, consider getting two orders of these because you’ll end up fighting over who gets the third one.”

Char Siu Pork Buns

WDW Magazine Communications Director, Tatjana Lazar: “While the flavors of the Char Siu Pork Bun were nice, the texture of the pork itself was a little tough. Biting through it proved to be rather difficult and messy, especially since the bread itself was so light and fluffy. The pork was also a little fattier than I would have liked, but maybe that was just the piece I got. My take: Go with the shumai if you are only getting one dish!”

“Panda” Bubble Tea

WDW Magazine Communications Director, Tatjana Lazar: “This is one of my go-tos at the China Pavilion. The tea isn’t overly sweet like some bubble teas can be, and the milk adds a nice creaminess to the drink. The tapioca bubbles are always nice and fresh, with a good ratio of bubbles to tea.”
