China House (Boca Raton)
***** China House, 9050 Kimberly Boulevard, Boca Raton, Florida 33434 (561) 477-0041.
Remember that movie “Groundhog Dog” where Bill Murray relives the same day over and over and over? Anyway…I think you know where I am going with this review on China House, a “mom & pop” Chinese joint in Boca Raton.
Unless you have been living on the planet-Mars for the last 50 years, you know exactly what this joint looks like…my money also says that you know what the menu looks like and what the price-points are. For you Martians, loads of appetizers, meat-chicken-seafood entrees…tons of “specials” and combination plates…soup/egg roll/rice/entree/ice cream or pineapple chunks, give or take $7.95 for the whole shooting-match.
Let me make this one short and simple…China House is a NEIGHBORHOOD CHINESE JOINT…like, you live and work in the neighborhood. The food is good. The prices are good. The service is very pleasant. Is this “outstanding” Chinese food? Nope…but it is good stuff which is probably right up there with your favorite neighborhood eat-in/take-out.
The old Brooklyn “taste-test” netted me won-ton soup, egg rolls, roast pork fried rice, mooshu pork, shrimp with garlic sauce, pepper steak, sweet and sour chicken…everything was just fine, but like I said, “Ground Hog Day.”
China House is a good one to know about, if you live nearby…capice! The joint is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner.
