Food #005: Kowloon City

I once saw this really interesting documentary on Kowloon, the Walled City, a very densely populated district in Hong Kong that was later torn down. So I was quite curious what to expect from a restaurant called Kowloon City.

It came highly recommended and the menu on the Kowloon City website looked quite promising. While not too much to look at from the outside (in fact, it’s a bit out of the way behind the cinema near Eschenheimer Tor), the interior is quite nice with dark tables in fake wood design and such.

The service was fast and friendly and we ordered some tea, which came in cute little tea pots.


As a starter we had a mixed plate of dim sum, as they recommend in the menu that you should get them. They were quite good.


As a main course I ordered rice with vegetables and tofu, which was excellents. Their noodles were good, too.



Some plum wine for dessert and voilĂ , a perfect evening out. I can recommend this place and suggest you go sooner rather than later!
