Henry's China House Restaurant

745 SE 17th St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33316 | Fort Lauderdale | 954-763-3333

Location Description:

Calling itself Fort Lauderdale's first Chinese restaurant, the establishment founded in the '50s still consistently serves some downright savory Szechuan, Mandarin, and Cantonese cuisine. There's never a doubt the fare is homemade; if you dine during the slow hours, you can watch the staff roll, stuff, and pinch the won tons. Then you can order them freshly boiled in the mixed egg drop-wonton soup or steamed as an appetizer. Thanks to the crisp vegetables that garnish everything from the house-special sirloin to the chow fun (broad noodles), Henry should just change the wording of his slogan from first to freshest.
