***** China Steak House 3, 8565 Southwest 24th Street, Miami, Florida 33155, (305) 262-1228.

Got a real-good Chinese joint for you guys…China Steak House in Miami.

Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple recently did dinner and I gotta tell you- some of the best Chinese food I’ve had down here in Sunny South Florida.

For you guys looking for “real” Chinese food- I don’t think so!…no broiled squid eyeballs, fried monkey noses or roasted elephant tits…just solid Brooklyn-Jewish-American-Chinese food circa 1957!

Real simple order:

Wonton Soup
Egg Drop Soup
Egg Rolls
Barbecued Spare Ribs
Roast Pork Fried Rice
Chicken Lo Mein
Sweet & Sour Pork
Pepper Steak
Shrimp With Lobster Sauce

Like I said a few seconds ago, right on the money/delicious… Brooklyn-Jewish-American-Chinese food circa 1957! The above order- give or take a Lobster Cantonese, or a Chicken Chop Suey here and there, is basically what every and I do mean every -(non-kosher) Brooklyn Jewish Family in the 50’s & 60’s ordered on Sunday Night at the local Chinese joint…same for the Jews of- Queens, Manhattan and “The” Bronx!-as for Staten Island- crappy sewers limited the number of Jews who lived there…for some reason, Jews needed good sewers while the Tony Sopranos of the world, the Irish and Italians didn’t! Go figure! That said, the Jews that did live there, stuck to the “script” as outlined above! One other 50’s and 60’s “thing”- we use to call it “Going For Chinks”- but from what Jeff Eats understands, the word “Chink” is now politically incorrect- and today, the proper term is Chinese or Asian…

Anyway,

You can check menu/prices at chinesesteakhouse3.com

One final thing, the joint makes a $19.95 “China Steak” (32oz- broiled prime sirloin steak with mixed Chinese vegetables) that- is totally-off the chart delicious- so if you eat here, make sure that you order it!

    Long Island too. Or should I say “longiland”!

  2. Jeff,
    You got it exactly right.
    Growing up in Brooklyn in the 50s and 60s every Sunday night in our Jewish household was Chinese night. The whole family went out for Chinese food. Strangely back then, there wasn’t really too much delivery of food, you went out for it.
    Your menu is also correct give or take a shrimp toast or two. You do remember shrimp toast?
    You are also right, very few Jewish people lived in Staten island and the talk was that that when it rained the boro was flooded.
    You are also right we use to say We’re going for Chinks” No one meant anything bad by it, that’s just what we said.

    Good story here it brings up some nice memories.

    Looking forward to trying China Steak House although it’s some distance from my Delray Beach home.

    One other thing, the closest that Ive come to Brooklyn Chinese food here in the Delray Beach area is takeout Bamboo Wok which you have mentioned before.

    I’m Chicago Irish and we called it the same, if I slip and say “let’s go for Ch….nks” today my kids give me the Oh Dads!

    67 years old Italian here.
    Lived most of my life in Queens.
    We called it CHINKS.
    “WE WENT FOR CHINKS”
    People got to get over this polictical correctness crap.
    It was just a saying.
    No big deal.
    Jeff,
    Your menu right on the mark.

    Jeff,
    You got it right.
    We use to call it CHINKS in the 1960’s in Patterson NJ.

    Just ate dinner there with my wife and some friends and the food was as good as you said it was. That steak was amazing. Great find.
