Pekin Chinese Restaurant (Miami)
***** Pekin Chinese Restaurant, 2293 Southwest 17th Avenue, Miami, Florida 33145, (305) 858-9801.
Pekin…basically a “takeout” joint, but it does have a handful of tables. You can check menu/prices at www.pkrestaurant.com.
Let’s handle this one this way—applying Jeff Eats’ Brooklyn-Jewish Chinese Restaurant taste-test circa 1957, the wonton soup, egg rolls, roast pork fried rice, bbq ribs, fried dumplings, pepper steak, sweet & sour chicken, moo shu pork—everything was delicious. A special shout-out to those bbq ribs and egg rolls.
Look! You know and I know that FLORIDA is suppose to have lousy Chinese food. Sorry to report– but Pekin Chinese Restaurant doesn’t fit the mold. The joint’s stuff is real-good. I’m kinda figuring that since its been around since 1995 it must be doing something right.
If you live or work in Pekin’s neighborhood, you now know about a real good Chinese takeout joint.
Pekin is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10:30pm.
