SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Pei Wei, the authority on pan-Asian cuisine in an elevated, fast casual experience, will celebrate National Noodle Day on Oct. 6 with the introduction of three new noodle bowls.

Pei Wei Noodle Bowls will showcase the fresh produce, bright aromatics and exotic spices that characterize the regions' culinary traditions. Dishes are cooked to order in an open concept kitchen, using mindfully sourced ingredients, selected for their bold flavors and nutritional benefits.
- Chicken Chow Mein: Wok-seared noodles and chicken tossed in savory soy sauce with green beans, Swiss chard, red bell peppers, carrots, onion and scallions.

"Our new Noodle Bowls are a reflection of our 'flavor with purpose' mission, using fresh ingredients that are carefully selected for both optimal flavor and nutrition," said Pei Wei Chief Marketing Officer Clay Dover. "We believe that eating well is at the center of a well-balanced life, a sensibility we bring to each new menu item."
Included on the Noodle Bowl menu will be Pei Wei's updated Chicken Pad Thai recipe, now featuring wok-seared chicken and rice noodles, tossed in a Thai sweet-and-sour sauce with tofu, bean sprouts and fresh egg, and garnished with crushed roasted peanuts, fresh cilantro, scallions and lime.
