You can usually base the quality of Chinese take-out on egg rolls, and Canton makes them massive and good. Pick up food at this South Miami standout or sit in the dining room with a free pot of tea. Located in a nondescript strip mall, it's open late, and the chefs prepare tasty food at amazing speed. Aside from a woman who takes phone orders, service is excellent. Fried rice has lots of pork chunks, ribs are meaty, and the special won ton soup - with bits of lobster, chicken, pork, and lots of veggies - is indeed special. Go for combo meals such as honey chicken, shrimp with lobster sauce, and almond duck, which all are well prepared, ample, and come with a large egg roll (and spare ribs if you're lucky). The best part: With the exception of the whole Maine lobster, all combination platters cost less than $12. There's also sushi here, so if you're not in the mood for delicious greasiness, take a hint from Ol' Dirty Bastard and keep it raw; the "seven seas" and "3 village" rolls are tasty.
