Its really hard finding a good Chinese Restaurant at times. Especially down south in the Kendall and South Dade area. All of them are a little too proper and clean for their own good. The best Chinese food I’ve ever had were the most beat-up looking places in various parts of New York City.
Either way, down in Kendall and the Cutler Ridge Cutler Bay areas, you can stop on buy to Chef Chen. Two locations to serve the public well. Definitely not beat-up looking establishments, in fact, they’re quite perfect looking.Â I literally just came back with a take out order as I write this. What did I order? The Chicken Lo Mein with no onions. A small serving that feeds two or three people for about $5.00. And I also had the Hot & Sour soup for $2.00, which is most definitely on point. Besides that, tons of family value meals and dinner specials give you a good value for your dollar and they definitely have a few vegetarian options.
Recognition: Miami New Times named Chef Chen as having the best Chinese soup in all of Dade County. And they were named among the “Top 100 Restaurants In The USA” – whatever that means. Its on their flyer, but doesn’t really mention “who” gave them that honor. (lol)
All in all, good food at a good price. Definitely not the best chinese food I’ve ever had, but definitely a good choice in the down south area of the county at a good price with quick service.
