Kowloon Restaurant got its start as The Mandarin House in the 1950s, a relatively small establishment that could seat 40 to 50 people. Since then, it’s grown into a massive multi-room restaurant packing an impressive 1,200 seats. Serving up an eclectic mix of different Asian cuisines, it’s easy to see why avid foodies across Boston, MA have fallen so hard for this business. In addition to their much beloved brick and mortar, Kowloon has a food truck. So, you never know when you’ll catch ‘em taking their bounty of Asian eats on the road.
It’s almost impossible to summarize the offerings here given the menu’s so immense. There’s basically every appetizer connoisseurs of Asian cuisine could possibly desire, from butterfly shrimp to boneless spare ribs to spring rolls to wontons. As for the main courses, there are the classics of takeout menus like teriyaki chicken. However, for the more adventurous eaters, there are some seriously drool-worthy specialties. You can try a thinly sliced steak stir-fried with scallops and veggies served over noodles smothered in oyster sauce. What about a plate of roast duck sautéed with cashews and slathered with dried chili? Yes, please. If you’re enticed, either hit up Kowloon or book their truck for your next event. Either way, it’ll be a sound decision.
