***** Mr. Shen’s Peking Chinese Restaurant, 9228 Glades Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33434, (561) 482-1086.
Not exactly sure on this, but I’m thinking Mr. Shen’s has been around for something like 25 years.
Best way to describe Mr. Shen’s- a decent enough American Chinese Restaurant.
Jeff Eats got friends who swear by this joint…despite the fact that they are born and bred Queens’ boys circa- 1950’s-1960’s- they really don’t know dick (I know that this is suppose to be a family friendly blog site!) as to what constitutes real good Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Food or in their case, what constitutes real good Queens Jewish American Chinese Food- applying 1950-1969 parameters.
Long story short, for as long as Jeff Eats has been down here (22 years)-at least twice a year- to keep the peace, I let these guys and their wives schlep me and Mrs. Jeff Eats to this Mr. Shen’s Chinese Restaurant joint.
Last night was the latest schlepping- wonton soup, egg drop soup, fried dumplings, egg rolls, bbq ribs, chicken fried rice, sweet & sour pork, pepper steak, shrimp with lobster sauce, roast pork chow fun and like I said 3.6 seconds ago, these guys don’t know dick as to what consitutes real good Brooklyn or Queens Jewish American Chinese Food applying 1950-1969 parameters. I will tell you, in all fairness- the egg rolls weren’t half bad!
