Canton Restaurant Review

: Two decades ago Canton was known throughout Miami-Dade County as the affordable, Americanized Chinese chain that was home to the $4.95 lunch special and to South Florida's most renowned honey garlic chicken --- a sweet deep-fried preparation that makes General Tso's seem like health food. These days, there have been changes in the offerings, including "healthy menu" selections and sushi counters from the local Japanese/Pan-Asian chain Sushi Maki. Also, not surprisingly, the $4.95 lunch combos now range from $6.95 to $10.95. But the honey garlic chicken is still superior to most in town, though also, at nearly 16 bucks, the most expensive in town. And other classics, mostly protein-heavy dishes (with American vegetables, if any) like Canton steak, a super-size serving of sizzling beef, and barbecue ribs still satisfy. Count on venues that are always clean and authentically welcoming --- to people, if not to genuine Chinese vegetables.
