A recent e-mail received by Jeff Eats…
Just moved from Orlando to Miami. My address is, ________________.
No insult intended, but until yesterday I had never heard about your site when I stumbled upon it while searching for Chinese Restaurants in Miami.
What’s the chance that you could do me a favor and give me a terrific “American” Chinese Takeout within a mile of my home? I would really appreciate the help.
Welcome to Miami.
Not so sure about the TERRIFIC part of your request, but Pekin Chinese Restaurant “should” definitely get the job done for you!
Thanks for reading…

Pekin…basically a “takeout” joint, but it does have a handful of tables. You can check menu/prices at www.pkrestaurant.com.
Let’s handle this one this way—applying Jeff Eats’ Brooklyn-Jewish Chinese Restaurant taste-test circa 1957, the wonton soup, egg rolls, roast pork fried rice, bbq ribs, fried dumplings, pepper steak, honey garlic chicken, moo shu pork—everything was delicious. A special shout-out to the honey garlic chicken and the egg rolls.
Look! You know and I know that FLORIDA is suppose to have lousy Chinese food. Happy to report- Pekin Chinese Restaurant doesn’t fit the mold. The joint’s stuff is real-good. I’m kinda figuring that since its been around since 1995 it must be doing something right.
If you live or work in Pekin’s neighborhood, you now know about a real good Chinese takeout joint.
Pekin is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-10pm, Friday-Saturday 11am-10:30pm.
