"We hated it but you would probably love the place, Erica, because is seemed very authentic and there were lots of Asian people eating there."
That was the declaration (from elderly relatives) that brought me to Real Wok on Hypoluxo and Military in the Western Beef strip mall, about 3pm yesterday afternoon.
I was pleasantly surprised by this place. There is, indeed, a menu with a page or two of Chinese translations, as well as a dim sum menu served from 11am to 3pm (same items available later for another dollar or so per item.).
The place is not much to look at and we only had three items but based on those, I would say this place is a pretty good bet for Cantonese food in South Florida. It's not Flushing, but I would return.
The Roast Pork Noodle Soup was dense with tender and slightly fatty (this is good) BBQ pork and very good broth; one can order it with several different types of noodle; I had the thin egg noodles but will try some thicker ones next time My partner ordered Roast Pork Lo Mein and pronounced it excellent; it certainly looked delicious and came as part of a $11.95 lunch special with won ton soup, egg roll, fried rice--all looked pretty generic, and canned pineapple.
Hit of the meal, for me, were the "Stuff Beancurd Skin Rolls," phyllo-thin sheets of tofu skins encasing minced shitakes and maybe another ingredients. This is one of those memorable dishes that one obsesses on even the next day. I have to get back there for another order of these, and based on how good they were (three to an order) I have pretty high hopes for other dim sum items.
Total for above, with complimentary tea: $26.66 before tip.
Dim sum carts on weekends.
