Restaurant details
Reviewed 3 April 2016

We ordered simple fare, fried rice and chow mien, for our lunch here, our first visit. We had a lemonade and a pot of green tea to drink. The restaurant adjoins a hotel along the waterfront, across from the Malecon, with a lovely view of turquoise waters. There are pleasant Chinese style decorations including lanterns, red pillars and wood carvings. Our lunch was tasty although the noodles in the chow mien were more like italian spaghetti than Chinese noodles. Still very tasty and generous, with plenty of fried rice left to have with our dinner. Server was very nice. If we stay in La Paz more than a week we will likely return!

We ate here when we visited 16 years ago with the same couple that travelled with us then. The food is still very good, and the service is excellent! We ate here for both our suppers in La Paz and plan to do so again when we visit!

Was working in La Paz, solo diner. needed a quiet place to eat and read. Pekin was awesome. a real throw-back for this New Yorker to be in a kitchy Chinese restaurant. Food was spot on- some creative appetizers. Great value - I ate left-overs for days. Waiter was SUPER nice and friendly. Will definitely go back on my next trip. Would be great for a small group when you're tired of the fish and mexican options for dinner.

We ordered the appetizer plate which was a pile of thickly breaded and likely twice reheated/refried pieces of unidetifiable meat, 2 shrimp and 4 very greasy eggrolls. It all looked and tasted old and bland. The main courses were seafood chow mein and the seafood combo, thinking that it would make a nice change of flavour from the mexican, excellent way of preparing the catches from the sea. They both were a big pile of colourless, grey , tasteless food in thick sauces and with just a hint of seafood in both of them.
The waiter was very friendly, but we can not think of another positive thing to say about this restaurant. Reheated leftovers would have tasted better.

If you're a fan of North American supermarket Chinese food, you'll probably find Nuevo Pekin quite acceptable. Glutinous sauces, tasteless fried rice, and overcooked meat seem to be the standard fare. With so many excellent seafood restaurants and good Cal-Mex or Tex-Mex food available, I don't see why anyone would choose to eat here.
