Yo! Panda- Quick Bites and Savory Asian Delights in SM Megamall

We were strolling around SM Megamall when we caught sight of a hipster panda with afro hair and cool sunnies. Yo! Panda occupies a small corner space at the 4th level of Mega A near the escalators, so it is hard to miss the spot.

While it seemed most diners were ordering desserts, particularly Yo! Panda's Hong Kong-style Bubble Waffle Gelato, we were keen on trying some of their savory dishes. 

We weren't really hungry so we ordered only a few interesting dishes. First was the Shrimp & Cheese Balls (P290) which were deep fried crunchy shrimp balls, topped with pork floss and served with sweet soy and Japanese mayo. 

There wasn't a lot of cheese going on, but we really enjoyed this dish overall.

Next, we had the Crispy Pork Chop w/ Cheese Noodles (P280). This dish reminds me of the Korean instant cheese noodles we buy from Korean stores. It was cheesy but not too rich in taste and flavor. It wasn't too bad, but it wasn't too great either. 

Last to arrive was the Super Xiao Long Bao (P195). We were so close to cancelling this order because it almost took forever to be served. We're glad we didn't. Indeed, it was a gigantic soupy dumpling filled with a light tasty broth. 

While we weren't all impressed during our first visit, we weren't too disappointed either. We will probably be back to try some new menu items and give the waffle gelatos a try.
