Chuck Berry Dead At 90!

* Chuck Berry Dead At 90!

But it was perhaps John Lennon — who died in 1980 — who put it most succinctly. “If you tried to give rock and roll another name, you might call it ‘Chuck Berry.'”

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, I singled out the pan fried dumplings for a shout-out, but its egg rolls etc, also kill!

***** Lee’s Chinese Food Take-Out, 7102 Southwest 117th Avenue, Miami, Florida 33183, (305) 271-4891.

Got a real-good Chinese takeout joint for you guys who live/work in Kendall…Lee’s Chinese Food Take-Out.

Let me make this one short and simple…

Jeff Eats has eaten his fair share of South Florida Chinese food—and Lee’s Chinese has to be rated as one of the best Chinese takeout joints that I’ve had the pleasure to come across.

The other evening Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats visited with some friends “down” in Kendall—we picked-up some stuff from Lee’s Chinese…won ton soup, egg rolls, pan fried dumplings, bbq ribs, roast pork fried rice, beef with oyster sauce, shrimp with black bean sauce, honey garlic chicken, roast pork lo mein, mushu chicken—now nothing for nothing, I’m telling you that Lee’s Chinese food was right up there with best of breed. Look! Jeff Eats was born in Brooklyn in 1949—and as a result, I am an absolute expert on what constitutes good-great New York-Jewish Chinese food. For the record, from 1949-1991 Jeff Eats fressed (non Jews look-it up) his way through “countless” Brooklyn-Queens-Manhattan-Long Island Chinese joints–so I “say” I know my stuff…and I am telling you, that Lee’s Chinese is real-good. For those looking for some sort of pecking order…my favorites were the egg rolls, pan fried dumplings and the honey garlic chicken—that said, every dish was delicious.

While I’m pontificating here…You guys do know, that there really is no such thing as “bad” Chinese take-out, don’t you? This kinda food is just a matter of incremental degrees. A liter of Coke and a plate loaded with Chinese stuff in front of a tv—and there really isn’t too much to bitch about, is there? Be honest, who here hasn’t eaten cold Chinese food right out of the frig the next morning–or for that matter, just combined Chinese left-overs and then reheated for 90 seconds in the microwave? Everybody does it…and unless you’re from Mars or something, the “next” day stuff always tastes great.

Anyway…before I go off on another Chinese tangent—let’s just say that Jeff Eats really enjoyed Lee’s Chinese Food.

You can check menu/prices at www.leeschinesefood.com.

Lee’s is open Monday-Thursday 11:30am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11:30am-11pm, Sunday noon-10pm.

All Star Pizza (Miami/Kendall)

***** All Star Pizza, 11280 Southwest 137th Avenue, Miami, Florida 33186, (305) 385-1400.

Real simple tale to tell you guys, yesterday afternoon Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats checkout All Star Pizza in Kendall- stopping by the joint for a couple of slices and a calzone. Just so you know, All Star Pizza is basically a “takeout” situation, but it does have a small counter to eat-at- if that’s your game!





Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats really enjoyed the slices and calzone. The pizza -thin/crisp/sweet sauce and the calzone filled with ham/mozzarella/ricotta cheese (and you thought-that Jeff Eats was kosher!) were right on the money!

The unfortunate part of this tale- is that All Star Pizza is located way-far-away from Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode, so those slices/calzone aren’t exactly gonna be an everyday or even weekly affair! C’est la vie!

You can check menu/prices/info at allstarpizza.net.

All Star Pizza is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10:45pm, Friday-Saturday 11:00am 11:45pm.
