This is the second time (despite a recent name-management change) that this Chinese joint has garnered a DISH OF THE WEEK award…

For what it’s worth, definitely one of the best traditional (real) and American Chinese (aka Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Food circa 1957) restaurants in Florida.

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, if this joint wasn’t so far-from Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats’ Boca Raton abode, we would be real steady customers!

Trust me on this one- this joint is an absolute must try!

Look!

Jeff Eats is a simple (left myself open there, didn’t I?) guy-who was born in Brooklyn in 1949. I was raised on “American” Chinese food…you know- wonton soup, bbq ribs, steamed dumplings, roast pork fried rice, egg rolls, sweet & sour pork, General Tso’s chicken, pepper steak, chicken chow mein, shrimp in lobster sauce with a drop of black bean sauce mixed in, pineapple chunks, vanilla/strawberry/chocolate/pistachio ice cream, fortune cookies. Like I said, I’m a simple guy!

Long story short,

I got friends-my age- who were born in Brooklyn, who for some reason think that- the “American” Chinese food we all grew up on-is now beneath them…when they eat Chinese, they have to have- REAL CHINESE stuff like…pepper salted quail, lambchoy minced with green bean, spicy fish with tofu, yam in sour sauce.

Being a pretty easy going guy, Jeff Eats is willing to try almost any restaurant “recommended” by friends to “accommodate” friends.

With the above in mind, Jeff Eats, Mrs. Jeff Eats and three “former” Brooklyn couples recently- did Wei’s Long Gong Chinese. Real simple- the wonton soup, egg rolls, steamed dumplings, General Tso’s chicken, roast pork fried rice, shrimp in lobster sauce with a drop of black bean sauce mixed in- were all delicious. I have absolutely no idea how the pepper salted quail, lambchoy minced with green bean, spicy fish with tofu, yam in sour sauce- tasted…but Jeff Eats’ Brooklyn friends said to tell you, these dishes were terrific. By the way, the pineapple chunks and the fortune cookies-were, pineapple chunks and fortune cookies!

Trust Jeff Eats with this one, Wei’s Long Gong Chinese’s “American” Chinese food is very-very good…if this joint was in my neighborhood, I’d be a real steady customer. Just a gut call, but I’m thinking that you guys who like REAL CHINESE FOOD will also- really enjoy Wei’s Long Gong Chinese.

Wei’s is open Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday 11:30am-9:30pm, Friday 11:30am-10pm

    Terrific food.
    One of the best General Tso’s Chicken.

  2. Ronnie Kessler says...

    This is our go to joint for Chinese takeout.

    Like many here, not really into the REAL CHINESE FOOD arena but love the American stuff. Delicious wonton soup, springs rolls, fried dumplings, fried rice, Sweet & sour pork etc.

  3. Beth Robinson says...

    Jeff,
    Good call here.
    They serve both traditional and Americanized Chinese food which is delicious.
    My family loves eating there and we also do quite a bit of takeout from them,
    We are originally from Forest Hills, NY and use to be regulars at Wong Kee in Chinatown.
    Personally we think that this restaurant would do great in NY’s Chinatown.

  4. Tony Costello says...

    Don’t let slight name change scare you off. I think that there was recently a mgt change but the food and prices are still the same.

    Love its food.

  5. Dom Rizzo says...

    Ive been eating there for years and absolutely love the food.

  6. Larry Sinclair says...

    Take it from this steady customer, the food is delicious.
