Hong Kong Wok N Grill (Jupiter)

***** Hong Kong Wok N Grill, 185 East Indiantown Road, Jupiter, Florida 33477, (561) 746-6798.

Got a real good “out of sight, out of mind”- Chinese joint for you guys, Hon Kong Wok N Grill in Jupiter. I say “out of sight, out of mind”- because although Jeff Eats first told you guys about-the joint on April 16, 2012 -I hadn’t been back until last night for dinner. Just between us, Boca Raton where my abode is- and Jupiter is a “drive” that you don’t want to be making on an everyday basis- if you get my drift!

Long story short, last night Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and another couple ate dinner at Hong Kong Wok N Grill and I gotta tell you that the food was real good! If I do say so myself, the egg drop soup, wonton soup, egg rolls, bbq ribs, pan fried pork dumplings, roast pork fried rice, sweet & sour chicken, pepper steak, roast duck, General Tso’s chicken (no spice) that we had- scored extremely high on Jeff Eats’ Circa 1957 Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Food Taste Test!


Now, you know and I know that “food reviewing” is a totally subjective-situation! What I like, you may hate…with that in mind, the suggestion here- is to give Hong Kong Wok N Grill a try- and see if rings the bell for you! It did for Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and “the” Anyomous Couple!

You can check menu/prices at The joint is open Monday-Saturday 11am-10pm, Sunday 4pm-10pm.

When I was a kid growing up in Brooklyn my parent’s favorite neighborhood Chinese restaurant was Joy Fong’s on Avenue J—now I’m just guessing here, but I’ll bet you that between 1949-1966 (the year Jeff Eats started college) I, my brother, my father and my mother must have eaten in that joint something like 600 times. Now, most non-Jews (the goyim) back then, thought that “us” Jews lit candles on Friday nights—au contraire, “us” Reform Brooklyn Jews were either stuffing our faces in/or getting takeout deliveries from the Joy Fong’s of the world. Back then we didn’t call it Chinese food, we use to say we were going out for C@@@@@—(And you thought that Jeff Eats wasn’t politically correct, didn’t you?) The point I’m trying to drive home here, whether right or wrong, Joy Fong’s “food” is as far as I’m concerned the gold-standard for neighborhood Chinese joint food. Maybe a better way to explain “this”—when I eat matzo ball soup-I compare the ball at hand–in texture, consistency and flavor to the ones that my mother made.

Now that I’ve filled some space and killed some of your time, I recently had dinner at Hong Kong Wok N’ Grill in Jupiter. Now based on my Brooklyn Jewish Chinese Joy Fong’s standards I gotta tell you, this joint makes some pretty good food.

Here’s what I “sampled”—egg rolls, pan fried pork dumplings, bbq ribs, roast pork fried rice, chicken chow mein, sweet & sour pork, general tso’s chicken (no spice), shrimp with lobster sauce. As for the test results, the egg rolls, dumplings, ribs were delicious—same for the fried rice and general tso’s chicken…as for the sweet & sour pork, chicken chow mein and shrimp with lobster sauce–good, but if memory serves me right, Joy Fong’s stuff was better.

Now for the kicker here—in early 1967 my parents, my brother and I discovered Pine Gardens (which morphed into Wong Kee) in NYC’s Chinatown which made Joy Fong’s food look like rookieville. Since Pine Gardens/Wong Kee were so phenomenal, I don’t use “them” as yardsticks, because to this very date, I haven’t found any joint that makes better food.

Let me wrap this story up this way…Hong King Wok N’ Grill is a real good Chinese restaurant. If you live or work in Hong’s neighborhood give it a shot—I enjoyed it and I think you will too.

Hong Kong Wok N’ Grill is open Monday-Saturday 11am-10pm, Sunday 4pm-10pm.
