KOWLOON is a famous neighborhood/area of HONG KONG.

Interesting if there was a famous Boston Chinese-Polynesian restaurant named after a popular area of Hong Kong.

No, there is not a Chinese restaurant in Wash DC which has Poly-Chinese menu. Sounds unique to that restaurant.

Guess you will have to travel back to that city to go to that restaurant.

By the way, People from China couldnt even travel to Hawai until the late 80's. Polynesian dishes are combination of native hawai and Japan. NOT CHINA.

Actually quite a few "Polynesian" dishes are Catonese by way of Hawaii and California. Although citizens of PRC (i.e. Red China) could visit foreign countries without special permission until quite recently, there were ethnic Chinese all over the world, including Hawaii. Some members of the Chinese diaspora in SE Asia go back generations, hundreds of years in their "new" native countries.

Sorry I meant "citizens of PRC could NOT visit..."

As a native New Englander, who loves Chinese-Polynesian style food and looked for it extensively while living down there, I can say with authority that, no, that food doesn't exist down there. It was one of the many reasons I moved back! Couldn't live without my Mai Tais, Chicken Fingers and Peking Ravioli!

The closest thing I found is Cheng's on 7 in Sterling, and compared to some of the better places up here, it's downright dogfood.

I lived in Herndon and tried Luau Garden when it was open, and no. No. No. The place was disgusting.

Default hmmmm....

by the way on the subject of chinese food, just so everyone knows, the "Singapore Mai Fun" in Singapore does NOT come with a curry seasoning like they do here. It has definitely been "americanized". Whatever you call it - be it asian fusion or poly-chinese who cares as long as it taste good. That black pepper crab is making me hungry - yum!

I made the pilgrimage to the Kowloon last week.
It was beyond euphoria and everything I remembered.

When I die I am haunting Saugus MA so I can eat at the
Kowloon, Hilltop Steakhouse, and D'angelos every day.

If only there were jobs in Boston that paid enough to live there..
