The new Pei Wei Test Kitchen is located near the brand's headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona and is open to the public.
Menu items being tested draw from a number of Asian cuisines as well as Asian fusion. Options include new Asian Street Tacos (in Korean BBQ, Banh Mi-Style, and Teriyaki varieties), Wok-Tossed Wings, Kimchi Fried Rice Bowls, Korean BBQ Steak Bibimbap, Spicy Peanut Chicken Satay Bowl, Vietnamese Chicken Pho, and Pork Belly Ramen. Basically, it looks like they're trying popular dishes that you might find at a Korean, Vietnamese, Japanese, or Thai restaurant but all under one roof. You can find the test location's full menu on their website here.
