For those looking for a way to enjoy slow-cooked pork belly without the wait, Panda Express' new Honey Glazed Pork Belly is the perfect option. Available alongside several healthy new side dishes, the premium pork entree is indicative of the chain's recent efforts to elevate its menu.

The new New Honey Glazed Pork Belly from Panda Express is a specialty dish currently being tested at the chain's latest (and fourth) Panda + Tea Bar restaurant in Pasadena, California. The dish itself consists of pork belly that has been cooked sous vide for five hours before it is smoked, flash-fried and tossed in a wok. To give the pork extra flavor, it is tossed with a slightly sweet "Chinese-inspired honey barbecue sauce."

Alongside the new pork dish, the chain is also testing three new veggie-based 'Fresh Favorite' sides, which include Glazed Carrots & Brussels Sprouts, Quinoa Brown Fried Rice, and a Kale, Cabbage, & Broccoli Stir-Fry.
