Tropical Chinese Restaurant Review

: Tropical Chinese is tucked away in a commercial strip mall in Miami's suburbs. For its 30th anniversary, the longstanding family-owned restaurant celebrated with a makeover that includes a 20-foot bar and mural from a local artist. The place is known for serving some of Miami’s highest quality Chinese food and dim sum (offered by servers wheeling carts from table to table). Diners can choose from scores of such traditional dishes as har gau (steamed shrimp dumplings), siu mai (steamed pork dumplings) and pai guat (spare ribs in garlicky black bean sauce). There’s also rainbow pancake, ginger scallion clam soup, Szechuan peppercorn fish, Hong Kong scallops, General Tso's chicken, curry Singapore rice noodle (or a dozen other noodles varieties), pineapple fried rice and the house specialty: fresh whole roasted daily, Long Island Peking duck that's presented in two courses.
