Shanghai City Chinese Restaurant (Boca Raton)
A recent e-mail received from reader Susan about Shanghai City Chinese Restaurant in Boca Raton.
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.

To answer your question…Only a fool would give a restaurant that tried to cheat him a second chance…and Jeff Eats is nobody’s fool!
Thanks for reading.

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 TOFU 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.
