( Raise your hands if fish is your protein of choice! Though beef, chicken, and pork will always have a place in just about any Filipino's heart, fish is also a fantastic option that takes well to all sorts of flavors. As it's officially Lent, it's also the go-to protein for many Catholics and Christians around the country—and if you're looking to get your fix on a feisty Chinese-style note we've got just the thing. In time for the religious observance, Panda Express is introducing a fishy new entree that's exclusive to the Philippines: Meet the limited-edition Kung Pao Fish!

Don't miss the chance to try this limited-edition fish entrée from Panda Express:

Combining Szechuan flavors with Chinese-American flair, the Kung Pao Fish employs chunks of lightly breaded boneless fish that are fried to a crisp. They're then tossed with crisp-crunchy veggies and peanuts in a savory sauce with a bit of a kick! Yup, it's just the thing to pair with Panda Express' rice, noodles, or other sides.

Get your chopsticks ready; the Kung Pao Fish will be available starting March 11 at all their shops, but you can also order for delivery through their website or delivery apps (GrabFood or Foodpanda). Be sure to catch it while you can as it'll only be available for a limited time! Better yet, try it alongside their other Lent-friendly entrees, namely the Eggplant Tofu and Honey Walnut Shrimp.

Panda Express is an American restaurant that first opened in Glendale, California, in 1983. Known for their Chinese-American fare, they opened their first Philippine branch at SM Megamall in 2019.

See a list of Panda Express branches. For delivery orders, visit Panda Express' website or find Panda Express on GrabFood or Foodpanda. You can also check out their Facebook page.
