Okay, so there are no Asian American actors or actresses in this commercial, but I just saw this Panera Bread commercial for their new offering of Asian-inspired broth bowls, highlighting Soba Noodle Bowl with Chicken.
I really don’t eat regularly at Panera Bread and to be honest, although the quality of their food is generally above average, the ‘value’ has never been for me. I’ve usually gone their for coffee, bagels, a sandwich or salad. Maybe that is why the restaurant chain characterizes the new line of broth bowls as to “Eat Adventurously.”
I’m not totally familiar with Panera Bread’s offerings, but was genuinely surprised to discover that they were offering a soba noodles. The next time I’m at Panera Bread, I’ll have to give this dish a try.
