    Going to Silver Pond Chinese in Lauderdale Lakes.

    Great food.

    Silver Pond (Lauderale Lakes)
    Posted on August 3rd, 2012 · Chinese Lauderdale Lakes
    ***** Silver Pond, 4285 North State Road 7, Lauderdale Lakes, Florida 33319, (954) 486-8885.

    Back on December 13, 2006 Jeff Eats did a “story” on Silver Pond a Lauderdale Lakes Chinese joint…suffice it to say, I absolutely hated the food. Well! Almost 6-years have come and gone since that initial-review and during that time Jeff Eats-received numerous positive written and verbal comments about Silver Pond. Many who corresponded, insinuated that Jeff Eats was crazy and that Silver Pond was one of the best, if not THEE BEST Chinese restaurant in South Florida…I will tell you included in THEE BEST group was Brother Jeff Eats and Brother Jeff Eats’ wife, Sister-In-Law Jeff Eats. Now nothing for nothing, Jeff Eats is one tough-cookie…despite that “toughness” last night I finally gave-in and gave Silver Pond another try.

    Applying my Brooklyn-Jewish-Chinese taste-test circa 1959…I “sampled” wonton soup, roast pork fried rice, bbq ribs, pan fried dumplings, sweet & sour chicken, sweet & sour pork chops, general tso’s chicken, lobster in garlic sauce, roast duck…

    Here’s my “current” take on Silver Pond…the wonton-soup was good, but not great—the roast pork fried rice was good, but I’ve had better—the bbq ribs were delicious, right up there with best of breed—the pan fried dumplings were delicious—the sweet & sour chicken was very good—the sweet & sour pork chops were delicious—the general tso’s chicken wasn’t too good—the lobster in garlic sauce was delicious—the roast duck was delicious.

    Would I go back? Absolutely! Can’t really give you an answer as to why my 2006 and 2012 “opinions” are so diametrically opposed. What I do know, is that when I ate there in 2006 the food stunk…I also know, that last night’s meal was very-very good. Go figure!

    I think, actually I know that if you do a simple Silver Pond “search”—you will find numerous “comments”—that the joint has 2- menus, one in English and one in Chinese—that this is a “real” Hong Kong Style Chinese Restaurant—that this is an “authentic” Chinese restaurant not some Cantonese fast food joint—that the joint is always jammed with Chinese people eating there…for what it’s worth, Jeff Eats learned a long-long time ago that South Florida is loaded with balmalochas (for those who don’t know, balmalochas is the sarcastic yiddish term for “experts”)! For what it’s worth, most people (Jeff Eats included) don’t have a clue as to what good Hong Kong Chinese food is all about. Hell! I can’t even figure out how to use a pair of chopsticks. What I do know, is that my Brooklyn sensibilities tell-me, that I enjoyed almost every dish I had, the prices were “mom & pop” Chinese restaurant reasonable, there was a ton of food, the service was just fine, that I enjoyed eating with my family and that Brother Jeff Eats picked up the check!

    In closing, Jeff Eats is really glad that he was “talked” into trying Silver Pond again.

    Silver Pond is open Monday, Wednesday-Friday 11:30am-midnight, Saturday-Sunday noon-midnight, closed on Tuesday.

    For our purposes we are gonna call this Matteo’s story “A Public Service Announcement”…it might be too late to use it – for Mother’s Day but Father’s Day (for the uninformed- Father’s Day is Mother’s Day without presents) is another story!


    If you guys are looking for delicious Southern Italian food, great service, huge portions, reasonable prices- you gotta checkout Matteo’s which has a joint in Boca Raton and a joint in Hallandale!

    Straight up, Matteo’s is handily one of Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ favorite Florida- Italian restaurants. No bs- we’ve been eating at Matteo’s for years- and every meal- has been right on the money!

    Printed down below are previous Jeff Eats’ Matteo’s stories…

    A recent email received by Jeff Eats.

    Hey Jeff,
    Been reading you for years.
    Love the site.
    Great picks.
    Just curious if you don’t mind, Where are you, Mrs. Jeff Eats and Family “eating” this coming Thanksgiving?
    Once again, love the site.
    Happy Holiday

    Assuming that you aren’t gonna pull a Michael-Captain McCluskey-Sollozzo “scene”on me…

    Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats and Family- are “eating” at Matteo’s Restaurant in Boca Raton at 7pm. Nothing like good solid-Pilgrim food!-fried zucchini, penne ala vodka, chicken cacciatore, baked clams, linguine in white clam sauce, broiled pork chops, veal marsala- to help us remember Plymouth Rock and Tippecanoe & Tyler Too!

    Just so you know, Matteo’s in Boca Raton is one of “our” favorite Italian joints in Florida. Matteo’s food kills and its service is about as good as it gets. If you wanna “see” what a top-shelf restaurant is suppose to be- you eat at Matteo’s in Boca Raton. By the way, “we” also-really enjoy Matteo’s Hallandale location, same great food and service- but Boca Raton is- the Eats’ neighborhood so the Boca Raton joint- is an easier and more convenient outing for us!

    Happy Holiday to you and your family.

    DISH OF THE WEEK (Sunday-8/24/14- Matteo’s- Boca Raton, Hallandale)
    Posted on August 24th, 2014 · Boca Raton Dish Of The Week Hallandale Italian
    ***** DISH OF THE WEEK (Sunday-8/24/14).

    One of Jeff Eats’ favorite menu items.

    Broiled Pork Chop

    233 South Federal Highway
    Boca Raton

    1825 East Hallandale Boulevard

    Latest Review: 11/27/09

    Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that Matteo’s broiled pork chop “covered” with grilled onions/mushrooms/cherry peppers is absolutely off the chart. The chop is HUGE and every time I’ve had it, it was a challenge to finish the whole thing. I’m telling you, this chop is something very-very special.

    Just so we are straight with each other, Matteo’s is one of the best Italian joints in South Florida. Jeff Eats has literally eaten there countless- times and the food and service are always top-shelf.

    Matteo’s is an absolute must try!

    Certain things in life bear repeating…

    Matteo’s with locations in Boca Raton, Hallandale is one of the best Italian restaurants in South Florida.

    If you check…Back on March 19, 2008, I did a writeup on Matteo’s. I absolutely love this joint.You can check Matteo’s menu/prices at

    Matteo’s has 2 South Florida locations…Boca Raton, Hallandale…on average, I am probably in either the Boca or Hallandale joints at least once a month.

    Matteo’s food is delicious. Matteo’s service is outstanding. Matteo’s prices are not-exactly “cheap,” but if you’re sensible when ordering, you won’t need a second job to pay the bill…Matteo’s features both family-style and individual portions. Matteo’s is a “white-tablecloth” joint, but your tee shirt/shorts ensemble will work.

    Matteo’s started out as a Long Island joint…check the website for NY locations etc…Not exactly sure when its first S. Florida location (Boca Raton) opened, but from day-one Matteo’s has been a “homerun”…its enormous NY following, translated into an enormous South Florida following.

    Look…I could go on and on about this joint…

    I am telling you, that if you want terrific Italian food, served by a professional staff…with a management team that makes you feel like you are family…then you want to absolutely positively eat at Matteo’s.

    You now know “again” about a sensational Italian joint that is not to be missed.

    Trattoria Romana.

    Trattoria Romana (Boca Raton)
    Posted on April 9th, 2012 · Boca Raton Italian

    Trattoria Romana, 499 East Palmetto Park Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33432, (561) 393-6715.

    Trattoria Romana is an upscale “white table cloth” Italian joint in Boca Raton. For the record, the joint has been around since 1993 and has a HUGE following…the bet here is that Trattoria Romana is one of the most successful upscale Italian restaurants in Boca Raton and for that matter South Florida. I think (actually I know)–the most cursory Google search on Trattoria Romana turns up loads of extremely favorable “food” reviews.

    If you guys do a bit of checking, you’ll find that Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats do quite a bit of-shall we say–eating out. Trust me, we are easy going customers and never make life hard for waiters/waitresses–nobody. We tip well and are always pleasant. We know what it’s like to work for a living and have great empathy for the cooks, waiters, hostesses of this world.

    I’m gonna make this “story” short and really sweet.

    The food at Trattoria Romana is top-shelf. I and Mrs. Jeff Eats have eaten there TWICE…the first time was in 1995 and the second dinner- last week. Now, you guys may-be asking yourselves (then again you may not be asking): If the food is so delicious, why has Jeff Eats only eaten there twice in 17 years?

    Glad you asked…

    At the top of this story, I mentioned that a Google search would turn-up a ton of favorable “food” reviews—however, I neglected to mention that a search would also discover a ton of negative “attitude/service” comments… For the record, back in 1995, the front door hostess copped an attitude–like she was Eva Perone or something…throw in the waiter’s histrionics when we requested a 4-year old’s “kid’s” sized pasta portion—the outcome, it took me and Mrs. Eats 17 years to give Trattoria Romana another shot. The 2012 outing– now not 100% sure on this, but the same Eva Perone or a look-a-like is still the gate-keeper and is as charming as ever…the 4 year old is now 21, so I can’t tell you how the “waiter” would have handled a request for a “kid’s” portion…

    To sum Trattoria Romana up… great looking joint, very good food (the chicken scarpariello, veal chop parmigiana and yellowtail oregenata are outstanding), not too terrible prices, very bad “personnel” vibe…

    Just so you know, Jeff Eats isn’t planning a THIRD Trattoria Romana go-round, then again in 2029 I may have softened up a drop.

    It absolutely amazes me, that certain restaurants just don’t know how to treat customers. What gets me even more, is that some customers put up with this crap. I guess they are what my dad use to call “gluttons for punishment.”

    If you are a glutton, you can check for menu/prices.

    The joint is open Sunday-Thursday 5:30pm-10pm, Friday-Saturday 5:30pm-11pm.

    ***** Rainbow Palace, 2787 Oakland Park Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale, Florida 33306, (954) 565-5652.

    House of Chan, if you like, you can go and “look” it up.

    Suffice it to say, in the 1950s-1960s-1970s, the House of Chan located at 52nd Street and 7th Avenue, NYC- was one of America’s most famous upscale Chinese restaurants.

    Old history (isn’t all history old?), Jeff Eats’ father had a “business” house account, so Jeff Eats, his brother, father and mother–enjoyed a number of meals at the House of Chan.

    The House of Chan had fabulous food. The House of Chan had superb service. The House of Chan had a fabulous management team. The House of Chan had “style.”

    No question in my mind, those House of Chan outings-shaped Jeff Eats’ thoughts on what upscale-dining is “suppose” to be.

    Long story short,

    The Rainbow Palace has fabulous food. The Rainbow Palace has superb service. The Rainbow Palace has a top shelf management team. The Rainbow Palace has “style.”

    If you want TOP NOTCH CHINESE FOOD, TOP NOTCH UPSCALE SERVICE, A RESTAURANT WITH STYLE then get yourself over to the Rainbow Palace in Fort Lauderdale.

    For those of you wondering as to what Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “had”-house wonton soup, crispy steak, sesame chicken, chef’s fried rice.

    For what it’s worth,

    Both Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats found the food off the chart-but please keep in mind that you and us-Eats may-be polar opposites- on what constitutes good-great-lousy etc. That’s why Jeff Eats and you should never bet the farm on what some “critic” has to say about any particular restaurant or dish.


    Jeff Eats thought the food was terrific…

    By the way, Rainbow’s prices aren’t exactly cheap. Just a word to the wise, the joint’s portions are large- so figure on sharing stuff- and don’t over order,

    You can check menu/prices at

    Rainbow Palace is open Sunday-Wednesday 5pm-10pm, Thursday noon-3pm & 5pm-10pm, Friday noon-3pm & 5pm-11pm, Saturday 5pm-11pm.

    One final thought on this “food reviewing” thing…

    How many times have you asked a total stranger who was leaving a movie theatre “What he or she thought about a picture?” See where Jeff Eats is going with this? As my Uncle Sam Ting (by marriage to my father’s sister) use to say…

    Jeff, my Mom and Dad are coming to my Stuart home for a BBQ. The chicken and ribs are all being made on the George Foreman Grill you mentioned.

    The Grill is a fabulous cooking device.

    Posted on July 11th, 2015 · American BBQ Fast Food Music/Events/Other · [edit]
    * George Foreman 15 Serving Indoor/Outdoor Grill.
    Simple and short tale for you guys…

    This morning Jeff Eats went to Costco, bought a George Foreman 15 Serving Indoor/Outdoor Grill for 55 bucks- went home-spent 12 minutes on assembly…this evening “cooked up” a load of $2.99 lb beef ribs that Mrs. Jeff Eats bought at Publix- total cooking time 22 minutes…cleanup time, 9 minutes.

    Just wanted to let you guys know that this George Foreman 15 Serving Ibdoor/Outdoor Grill kills! No bs, delicious-tasting food and easier to use than any gas or charcoal grill that Jeff Eats has ever had-and trust me, I’ve had a load of them over the years! Now, unless I’m really losing it (which is entirely possible!) the Grill’s “grease-drip-pan” caught a load of grease/fat which Jeff Eats just emptied out-leaving (in this case bbq beef ribs) items less greasy/fatty (what else!) and probably a whole lot healthier to eat!

    I’m thinking that you guys may really want to look into George Foreman’s grills…

    NYY Steak (Coconut Creek)
    Posted on August 11th, 2015 · American Coconut Creek Seafood · [edit]
    ***** NYY Steak, (Seminole Casino Coconut Creek) 5550 Northwest 40th Street, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073, (954) 997-6700.

    Way-back on 2/15/12 Jeff Eats told you guys about NYY Steak located in the Seminole Casino Creek Coconut Creek- in Coconut Creek. That “review” is down-below…

    Long story short, since that “review” was published, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have eaten in NYY something like 5-times, with the latest “outing”- being last night. For what it’s worth, all of the meals that Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have had, were all right on the money!

    Last night, I got to thinking that Jeff Eats rarely if ever hears- NYY Steak mentioned in conversations about South Florida’s best steak-joints. No ifs, ands or buts- the 26oz bone-in-ribeye with grilled onions and French fries- that I had last night and didn’t come close to finishing- could easily be matched against the best of breed down here in sunny South Florida-same story for Mrs. Jeff Eats’ pan seared snapper!


    Jeff Eats just wanted to mention NYY Steak to you guys, again…

    It’s a very good steak joint!

    NYY Steak (Coconut Creek)
    Posted on February 15th, 2012 · American Coconut Creek Seafood

    ***** NYY Steak, (Seminole Casino Coconut Creek) 5550 Northwest 40th Street, Coconut Creek, Florida 33073, (954) 997-6700.

    Go figure!

    One of the best-“upscale steakhouses” in South Florida is located at the Seminole Casino Coconut Creek in- Coconut Creek…That’s right, the casino where you-gotta wear an oxygen mask because the cigarette smoke is so brutal—as part of a recently completed $150,000,000 renovation/expansion has opened an absolutely georgeous looking steakhouse with fabulous food and service. You can check for menu/prices/photos. By the way, NYY is a joint venture–Seminole Indians/New York Yankees (there is another NYY at Yankee Stadium).

    NYY…New York Yankees, get it? All kinds, of New York Yankee black/white photos, autographs…no dark wood–or dim lights here…but rather, a great looking open kitchen, light oak woods, bright lights, plenty of glass. Like I said before, an absolutely gorgeous looking joint.

    When you check NYY’s menu, try not to get sticker-shock…no question about it- that $51.75 24oz bone in ribeye is “high” even for an upscale steakhouse–Now, I maybe going out on a limb here, but I think- that casino-joints like NYY get a ton of customers using their casino “PLAYER’S CLUB” rewards/points to pay the bill. If I’m right—the restaurant can charge more than what most folks would consider “normal”- because many customers aren’t using real-money. So, if you go there, I think you will find that many of the “diners” are eating on-the-arm.

    At this juncture of the discussion, let me tell you that NYY looks totally out of place at the Seminole Casino. Nothing for nothing, but the Seminole Casino isn’t in this boy’s opinion–an upscale looking property. Now, there may-be something more developing at the Seminole Casino that’s gonna get it looking more like the Hard Rock operation in Hollywood-so NYY may eventually make sense, but for right now, NYY looks like a fish out of water. Personally, I don’t see non-casino players making special plans/reservations to eat at NYY, despite the fact that its food is absolutely dynamite.

    A recent dinner had me “doing” the aforementioned 24oz ribeye, 28oz porterhouse ($54.75), veal chop milanase ($44.50), roast chicken ($28.50), lemon pepper halibut ($31.50), steak fries ($9.50), lobster mac & cheese ($11). Every item was delicious. On the service front, excellent without the “snotty” know-it-all attitude you find at many upscale steakhouses.

    There are two ways to play NYY Steak. You can gamble your heart out…and accumulate points to spend or you can just fork over cash or your credit card at the end of the meal.

    NYY Steak is a homerun…pun intended!

    NYY Steak is open Monday, Thursday-Sunday 5pm-11pm. The joint is closed on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    ***** Shiver’s BBQ, 28001 South Dixie Highway, Homestead, Florida 33033, (305) 248-2272.

    Every so often Jeff Eats gets asked, “What’s one of your best bbq joints?”

    Just so you know, it’s Shiver’s BBQ- the only problem I got with the joint is that it’s in Homestead and Jeff Eats lives in Boca Raton! Trust me, BIG DRIVE!

    Long story short, Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats “just” finished eating lunch there…bbq babyback ribs, bbq beef ribs, bbq chicken, corn nuggets, cornbread soufflé, sweet potato souffle, corn on the cob, French fries- everything was dynamite!

    Jeff Eats first told you guys about Shiver’s on September 18, 2011…like I said earlier, Big Drive!

    All I know, if Shiver’s was closer to my Boca Raton home, I’d “literally” be eating in the joint all the time!


    Posted September 18, 2011
    ***** Shiver’s BBQ, 28001 South Dixie Highway, Homestead, Florida 33033, (305) 248-2272.

    Let’s play Southerner…got a great bbq joint for you, Shiver’s BBQ in Homestead. Shiver’s has been around for something like 50 years. Just so you know, we are talking “smoked goods” here—so, if the sweet sauces of Tony Roma’s or Bobby Rubino’s are your game–come prepared! Personally, I’m not a huge smoked-fan…but Shiver’s like the Three Pigs, has the formula for Just Right. You can check menu/prices at

    Shiver’s got a cute idea going…you eat at long picnic tables which line the joint. So in theory, you “could” be eating with strangers. Over the years, I’ve seen this seating thing done at other joints—Shorty’s B-B-Q in Miami (9200 South Dixie Highway) which has been around since 1951, has a similar setup (see review 7/10/08)…I also remember eating in a few Amish joints in Lancaster, Pennsylvania—they had “group” seating, but also had family style portions—but that’s a whole ‘nother story.

    A recent outing had me doing…corn nuggets, macaroni & cheese, cornbread souffle, french fries, babyback ribs, bbq chicken, pulled pork. Let me make this real-simple…Shiver’s BBQ is right-up there with the best bbq joints that- this originally from Brooklyn boy has ever eaten in. Everything was outrageously delicious.

    Y’all–Shiver’s is a homerun.

    Shiver’s BBQ is open Sunday-Thursday 11am-9pm and Friday-Saturday 11am-10pm.

    Outback Steakhouse (Boca Raton)
    Posted on January 19th, 2007 · American Boca Raton

    ***** Outback Steakhouse
    6030 Southwest 18th Street
    Boca Raton, Florida 33433
    (561) 338-6283

    Earlier today, I did a “writeup” on Olive Garden which is an Italian-chain with locations all over the United States. If you read my thoughts on Olive Garden, you know that I rated it “pretty good.” Anyway, I “got to thinking” about other chains that dot our South Florida area and decided to tell you about Outback Steak. If you don’t know about this chain (in a nutshell), it is a mid-price steakhouse which has the full “gamut” of other stuff like seafood and pastas. I am sure that sometime during the past 10 years-or-so, you have heard or seen an Outback commercial which has annoying actors with “heavy duty” Australian accents chatting-up the food. Nothing for nothing, but everytime I hear an Outback commercial I think of that (now late) crocodile guy who was always annoying the crap out of some animal on tv.

    Anyway, over the years I have eaten in at Outback Steak more than 10 times. If you check, I am sure that you will find an Outback “somewhere” close to your home. Just so you know, those 10 “dinners” were split between the Outbacks in Boca Raton, Coral Springs and Delray Beach.

    Outback’s food is not bad. Actually, for the price the steaks, seafood, appetizers, salads etc., are a very good value. The only problem that I have with this joint and IT IS A VERY BIG PROBLEM, is that literally every item on the menu is over-seasoned with SALT. When I eat at this joint, I make it my business, to tell the wait-staff to MAKE SURE THAT MY FOOD IS NOT OVER-SALTED.

    If you like SALT…Outback is for you. If you don’t like SALT and are not inclined to tell the wait-staff your “preference”…Outback is not for you.

    Outback Steak is open 7 days a week for dinner.

    We brought food in from Ben’s Deli in Boca Raton. Everything was delicious.

    Ben’s of Boca Raton (Boca Raton)
    Posted on March 8th, 2008 · American Boca Raton Delicatessen

    ***** Ben’s of Boca Raton, 9942 Clint Moore Road, Boca Raton, Florida 33496–(561) 470-9963

    Ben’s is a KOSHER DELI. This joint opened about 2 years ago and every time that I have been there, there have been lines waiting to dine in and take-out. You native New Yorker’s probably know, that this is the same Ben’s which currently has 6 Long Island locations and 1 Manhattan spot.

    DELI is a very funny thing…some people like fatty corned beef and some have to have it extra lean… The point to be made, is that you will have to try Ben’s and decide for yourself as to whether or not you like-love-hate this joint’s food.

    Last night I had a great Rumanian Steak smothered in sauteed onions, a piece of stuff derma and a potato pancake. The derma’s gravy was a bit salty, but everything else that I ordered was delicious. I also “sampled” a hot-dog with mustard and sauerkrat, corned beef, brisket, turkey off the bone, pastrami and tongue…all absolutely perfect.

    Ben’s is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. Like I said before, “deli” is a personal call, so try this joint and decide for yourself if it’s for you. Personally, I love the joint and try to get there once or twice a month.

    I enjoyed a lot on Mother’s day. It was a memorable day for me and my mother. My mother loves to eat different types of dishes. So I planned that we will go to the best restaurant which have extensive list of mouth watering meal. Then on that day we went to the butcher shop beer garden and grill in West Palm Beach. Here we had brunch, snacks and desserts that was very delicious. I would highly recommend this place for food lover.
