A recent e-mail received by Jeff Eats…

Hey Jeff,
You beat me and my husband down to Florida from Brooklyn by 27 years. We just moved into the Saint Andrews Country Club in Boca Raton. We are looking for a really good Chinese joint in the area that serves up delicious (as you call it) Brooklyn Jewish American Chinese Food. How about a name or two? By the way I’m a graduate of Midwood HS class of 67 and my husband graduated from Lincoln High School in 1964.
Thanks,
Laura Solomon

A number of you guys e-mailed about a “mom & pop Chinese” joint…China Gardens Restaurant, telling me about how good the food was, blah, blah blah. Anyway… last night I gave this joint a shot and “right-you-were”…the food is absolutely delicious.

China Gardens Restaurant is as you would expect, a “hole in the wall” located in a non-descript small South Florida shopping center. Guaranteed (unless you are a recent arrival from Mars) you know exactly what the decor is…what the menu is…and what the price-points and “specials” are.

Now let’s talk food…like I said before, DELICIOUS. Now for the official-results of my “taste test”….wonton soup (A), egg drop soup (A), hot & sour soup (A), egg roll (B+), pan fried dumplings (B+), sweet & sour pork (A+), chicken egg foo young (A), sizzling steak (A), shrimp with vegetables (A), shrimp with lobster sauce (A), roast pork fried rice (B+)…

Now I may-be going out on a limb here, but…my money says that China Gardens Restaurant is probably better than your favorite neighborhood-Chinese joint. Let me go one step further, China Gardens could “make it” in New York City’s Chinatown.

Based on my first outing, I will definitely be back for a second round.

China Gardens Restaurant is open Monday-Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 2pm-10pm.

***** Happy Pappy’s Sub Shop, 4531 Griffin Road, Davie, Florida 33314, (954) 581-8974.

Got a dynamite “mom & pop” diner- for you guys to checkout- Happy Pappy’s Sub Shop in Davie.

Simple concept at work here- booth/table seating, very reasonably priced breakfast/ subs/ wraps/ salads/ burgers/ wings/ hot dogs menu, open Monday-Friday 6am-3pm/Saturday 6am-2pm/closed Sunday.

Yesterday afternoon, Jeff Eats and 3-business associates “discovered” Happy Pappy’s Sub Shop (which by the way- has been around since 1974) and I gotta tell you guys- absolutely dynamite stuff!

Like I said a couple of seconds ago, absolutely dynamite stuff…

Look! I know that this food “reviewing” or whatever-you-want-to-call-it gig- is purely a subjective exercise. You know- what I like, you may hate and vice versa…that said, I’m telling you guys that Jeff Eats knows his “mom & pop” diners and – that this Happy Pappy’s Sub Shop joint is a winner!

If you live, work, play or just happen to be in Happy Pappy’s neighborhood give it a shot- you won’t be disappointed!

Let me ask you guys something…

1. Which Beatles’ tribute band has been nominated for a Grammy Award (2012)?

2. Which Beatles’ tribute band has made an appearance on a network tv program?

3. Which Beatles’ tribute band has a member who has won 2 Grammy Awards and 1 Emmy Award?

4. Which Beatles’ tribute band has a member who is a former member of the legendary Rock N Roll band- Sha Na Na?

5. Which Beatles’ tribute band has a member who as a member of Billy Vera and the Beaters played on the #1 1981 single ‘At This Moment’?

The answer to all 5 questions- The WannaBeatles!

Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats have seen the Nashville based- WannaBeatles and not one of the band members wore a Beatles’ wig or spoke with a fake British accent…What you get- are four extremely-talented musicians in a fast paced extremely entertaining interactive show- recreating The Beatles’ hits exactly as The Fab Four recorded them!

Trust Jeff Eats when I tell you that- The WannaBeatles are an absolute must see act!

***** Hong Kong City BBQ, 5301 North State Road 7, Tamarac, Florida 33319, (954) 777-3832.

Got a real-good Chinese joint for you…Hong Kong City BBQ in Tamarac.

The beautiful thing about Hong Kong City BBQ is that nobody in your car is gonna bitch about going there. The reason Jeff Eats says that, the joint has dim sum, Brooklyn-Jewish-American Chinese food circa 1957 and authentic Chinese food (whatever that is?).

Anyway,

A party of 6-of us recently gave Hong Kong City BBQ a shot and I gotta tell you, the food was right on the money.

Let me give you a fast run down of what was ordered…
House Wonton Soup.
Egg Drop Soup.
Chicken Corn Soup.
Pan Fried Pot Stickers.
BBQ Roasted Honey Roasted Spareribs.
BBQ Roasted 1/2 Duck.
Shrimp Pan Fried Noodles.
Roast Pork Fried Rice.
Peking Pork Chops.
Sweet & Sour Pork.
Steam Whole Tilapia.
Lobster Cantonese.

Now, nothing for nothing–not one person in our party “didn’t find what to eat” and everyone agreed that the food was really good. The prices are “neighborhood” Chinese joint prices, the décor is neighborhood Chinese joint décor. Playing to its name–Hong King City BBQ (with the emphasis on BBQ) the joint has some bbq chickens/ducks/pigs hanging over the front counter–which gives the joint a nice New York City Chinatown Dump feel.

You guys know that Jeff Eats really isn’t into doing “pecking orders”…that said, the House Wonton Soup, BBQ Honey Roasted Spareribs, Peking Pork Chops and Sweet & Sour Pork were at the top of my list. Like I said before, everything was really good, but the stuff I just mentioned–was really-really good.

I’m just guessing here, but I’m thinking that some of you guys may want to know: Does Hong Kong City BBQ have any “Early Bird” deals? Yes “Virginia”-from 3pm-7pm- 7 days a week Hong Kong City BBQ has an Early Bird which gets you–soup/egg roll/white or fried rice/entrée.

Let me wrap this one up,

Jeff Eats really enjoyed Hong Kong City BBQ. Give this joint a shot- I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

You can check menu/other stuff at http://www.hkcitybbq.com.

Hong Kong City BBQ is open Monday-Friday 11am-11pm, Saturday-Sunday 10:30am-11pm.

The most authentic ABBA tribute around! With the new resurgence of the ‘70s, portrayed in part by the hugely popular live musical production and now the world wide release of “Mamma Mia” – The Movie, the music of ABBA is finding its way back into the hearts of those who lived it then and taking over the hearts of those who are experiencing it for the first time now.

Abbacadabra promises to continue the momentum by performing 20 of the group’s greatest hits in full ABBA fashion and flair. You won’t be able to sit still in your seats as songs like S.O.S., Super Trooper and Dancing Queen are re-created with such precision you’ll swear you were listening to the originals themselves. The melodies of Fernando and Chiquitita will rekindle those feelings of first loves. Take a Chance on Me and Voulez Vous will lift you out of your seats to dance!

The show is authentic in music and dress and is performed to live music that will leave you excited and melancholy… at the same time.
