News: Panda Express Returns Peppercorn Shrimp

Panda Express returns Peppercorn Shrimp to the menu and promotes Surf and Turf Plates this summer.

Introduced for a limited time earlier this year, Peppercorn Shrimp features marinated shrimp, asparagus, chopped yellow onions, and red bell peppers wok-tossed with a signature sauce made from Thai green peppercorns and Asian spices.

The Surf and Turf Plates are not really a new addition to the menu per se (as far as I can tell, it's just Panda's two-entree plate), it seems to be more of a promotion that highlights various beef and shrimp combinations (Beijing Beef, Honey Walnut Shrimp, Broccoli Beef, Crispy Shrimp, Peppercorn Shrimp, or Shanghai Angus Steak) from the Panda Express menu.

There doesn't seem to be a promotional price attached, so I'm assuming it costs the same as a two-entree plate. Do keep in mind that there's a $1 premium upcharge per entree on shrimp items and Shanghai Angus Steak.

The promotion runs through September 25.
