[Eat] Hong Kong- What to eat near Kowloon Wall City Park?

This would be a combination of what I had that day after my visit to the Kowloon Wall City Park.

After walking around and visiting the park we were very hungry, so our friend who work at that district introduce us what to eat there.

***Special Note***
