China Taste Inn (North Palm Beach)

Posted on January 19th, 2010 · Chinese North Palm Beach


***** China Taste Inn, 12189 US Highway 1, North Palm Beach, Florida 33408 (561) 627-8081.

Not going to waste my time describing this “mom & pop” Chinese joint’s decor for you…because, if you are over the age of 2 you already know what joints like this look like. For that matter, I’m also not going to tell you about the crappy shopping center location-menu-service, because you’ve already been there and done that. You also know that 8-14 bucks is going to get you soup-appetizer-main dish-rice-dessert, so I won’t mention that either.

Let’s get to the heart of the matter…China Taste is one of the best Chinese joints in South Florida. Not sure what’s doing in my old Brooklyn neighborhood these days, but China Taste would have been packed on Sunday nights back in the 1950s-1960s.

A recent outing had me doing… wonton soup, bbq ribs, fried wontons, egg roll, sweet & sour pork, pepper steak, general tso’s chicken, shrimp with lobster sauce—and I am telling you, the stuff is good–real good.

China Taste Inn is open for lunch Monday-Friday 11:30am-2:30pm, for dinner Sunday-Thursday 4:30pm-10pm and Friday-Saturday 4:30pm-11pm.

    just wondering why u didnot try Peking Buffet in deerfield beach. I was there this sat and had till wait for 50 numbers to get in.The wait was 25 minutes at 6.oclock/ hudge sushi bar and good chinese food. only 9.95 for turnover keeps the food fresh.

    Wife and I had first date here at China Taste Inn in August 1994. We’re still happily alive & married … still get take out from here two to three times per month. Still good food. New faces in the place so maybe new owners / management a couple of times since 1994 or maybe same family just different generations.

    I think that there are 3 locations. I go to the one in Boca Raton. It is strictly takeout and delivery. The joint is Bamboo Wok. The one in Boca is on Glades Rd. and Lyons Rd. The food is great. The pan fried dumpling are the size of golf balls and are stuffed with meat same goes for the wontons. Outrageously good spare ribs. Same goes for the roast pork fried rice. One of the best dishes is General Tso’s Chhicken which is wonderful. The takeout portions can feed at least 3 people they are super large. Try this takeout it really is one of the best.
