Felix is one of the top 50 restaurants in the world, and this Philippe Starck creation is the best five star restaurant to visit if you want the view of Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok and the entire skyline of the Kowloon Peninsula as your backdrop whilst you dine.
Probing Jordan for the timeless taste of the real Kowloon is a must and the top three Kowloon restaurants are Australia Dairy Company, Marco's Bistro and Tim Kee French Sandwiches.
The Australia Dairy Co. has got nothing much to do with Australia but it is famous for their double boiled milk dessert as well as all day breakfast sets. Simple scrambled eggs are the most popular and very satisfying Hong Kong styled macaroni served in a cafe that embodies yesteryear.
Marco's Oyster Bar and Grill, which is a block away from Australia Dairy Co. is probably one of the most reasonably priced romantic restaurants you'll find in Kowloon, what makes it special is it tastes just like the haute cuisine you'll find in five star restaurants but only at Marco's you'll find that it without the 5 star price tag.
Tim Kee French Sandwiches is a little off the beaten path in Kowloon but the sandwiches (only the baguette part is French) are a mix of chopped salad and Vietnamese ham and bacon and extremely appetizing if you don't mind waiting in a queue for it.
BB's Bistro at Knutsford Terrace tries to imitate the ambiance of a little roadside French cafe and its popular choice for couples who are looking for a cosy place to gaze lovingly into each other's eyes. The recommended signature dishes are the pan fried scallops with a side of granny smith apples, cheese and spinach stuffed crab and the foie gras.
If you are looking for dim sum restaurants in Kowloon then you can't go wrong with Yat Tung Heen or Tim Ho Wan. Yat Tung Heen is probably better if you want service, a nice quiet place to sit down for an hour or two whilst Tim Ho Wan is more of a fastfood dim sum joint that is operated by Pui Gor, who once headed a Michelin starred dim sum restaurant.
When the sweet tooth beckons and you want a taste of what it feels like to be a Hong Kong local for a day then you should head to Tong Pak Fu. Word of mouth spreads that their mango shaved ice actually tastes like the best mango sherbet in Hong Kong.
Si Sun fastfood in Hung Hom, Kowloon is a little off the beaten path in Kowloon but its kitsch and the burger joint serves Hong Kong styled hamburgers with beef and onion patties and a home salad dressing that leave people nodding.
You couldn't leave out Kowloon City for Thai food - Pee Long Thai on Nam Kok Road is the busiest street in Kowloon is you are looking for Thai food that only locals go.
