Yo! Panda Craze

Heads up…

I AM NOT A FOOD BLOGGER, I just happen to be one of those who love food more than being in a relationship (#hugot) thus, one of the owners, is a very good friend of mine so I told her I’ll blog about it. (Feeling blogger lang! Tee-hee! Thank you to my lovable readers, I sincerely love you guys!) 😍😍😍

YO! Panda is a modern Asian fusion, concept inspired by Hong Kong, that caters cheesy noodles, baos, salted egg rice, HK milk tea and bubble waffles. Behind the brain of the establishment is the Co Family — siblings Prim Chua, Spencer Co, Aaron Co and his beautiful wife (my dearest friend, of course) Kriscia Co. When Kriscia told me they’re putting up a restaurant, I just knew right there and then that they will knit pick every single ingredient and give justice to the flavor. And knowing that they’re avid food enthusiasts it was natural for them to create this amazing concept. The one thing that I’m curious though is why the name Yo! Panda and what’s with Afro hair and sunglasses? So when I asked her, she told me “When we were conceptualizing we wanted Chinese fusion so we thought about Panda but we also didn’t want to think of the traditional kind, we wanted something different with a twist. That’s why we went for YO! A cool hippie style (and the same reason behind Sunglasses and Afro hair image). Haha” She added, “In addition, Panda expresses comfort too.. Just like how we want to provide for our customers, a haven of comfort food with a twist in the city.

When soft opening came… they wowed us. And as I am writing this article I’m insanely craving my faves! Gaaaah. So here it is… A few selections from the menu.

A favorite of mine — shrimp and cheese balls.
It’s very crunchy and cheesy, topped with pork floss!!!
