Shanghai City Chinese Restaurant (Boca Raton)

At the suggestion of a few of you guys…Jeff Eats gave this Chinese joint a shot.
Mediocre Chinese food at best.
What really pissed me off…one of the dishes ordered- “Seafood Hot Pot” ($19.95) was to “contain” shrimp, scallops and lobster meat. When the dish arrived, the kitchen had substitued cubes of T-O-F-U for the lobster. When questioned, the waitress after checking with the kitchen said– “The kitchen was out of lobster, so they put tofu in instead.”
This joint won’t ever see Jeff Eats again.
Substitution of tofu for lobster inexcusible .However,if it is possible to have a however in light of the substition, we have eaten in twice and taken out twice always with excellent results. The soups, shrimp with lobster[tofu?] sauce and orange beef are superb.Ambiance and service also excellent.
tofu, what a joke.
Based on what you have told us, I wouldn’t put my foot in a joint like this. TOFU are they out of their minds? Lobster is an expensive item and they replaced it with one of the cheapest items going. Not to have told you what they were doingto is absurd. The dish sounds terrible.
They won’t be seeing me.
Can’t even imagine that a restaurant would have the nerve to subsitute tofu for lobster and not even tell tell you before doing it. Maybe with lobster the dish was worth 20 bucks but with tofu it was probably worth 1/2 that. what a nerve. this restaurant is where jasmine use to be. it is in a crap location and based on what you have told us will probably fail any way.
craphole. lousy food.
i like the food but that to fu story takes the cake
which is your favorite restaurant for chinese food in the boca raton area
Just had a chance to read your comment.
Bamboo Wok (5/7/10) by far and away best food. Only problem, it’s takeout only.
Thanks for reading…
Don’t waste your time.
C’mon ,,, give the place another shot. Sure, subbing tofu for anything is wrong, but lots of dishes were ALMOST New York quality. And they do have chairs, lol, so you can dine-in.
