Kowloon is known as little Bangkok here in Hong Kong.
There are a plethora of Thai grocers and restaurants all within a 10 minute walk from home. It's amazing. Paul and I decided to try an almost packed place, Ruamjai, for dinner tonight. It was phenomenal!!! Paul got his normal Padthai which was very good, and I got seafood in a pumpkin. It was maybe one of the best things I have ever eaten in my life. Ever. For real. The pumpkin was demolished, and had there been another I probably would have finished him off too. An entire pumpkin filled with seafood, coconut milk and pure heaven. Score one for the boonies!
After a day of misses pumpkin nirvana was needed. We took a bus to a subway to a bus to the beach, 2+ hours, only to find the beach closed due to red tide. Awesome. We ferried off the island over to Central then to Kowloon and tried to get Korean. Twice. And both places were closed. But at least we found Ruamjai!
