Mongols BBQ, admittedly, was not a favorite on FTC. Nor was it ever talked about much on that-former-site-whose-name-shall-not-be-mentioned.
But, this all-you-can-stack-on-one-trip greasy spoon sustained this poor student for many a meal when I was but a wee lad (ok, ok… undergrad lad). And for that, I shall always be grateful.
Mongols BBQ was where I learned how to stack my noodle toppings taller in that narrow-diameter bowl than most other mere mortals there - a gift that I haven’t had to use in my later life (but I do feel adequately prepared, should the occasion ever arise).
I hear this location is giving way to a Taiwanese eatery: Northern Cafe. While I love dumplings and look forward to trying the new eatery in this spot, I cannot help but reminisce.
So long, my old, greasy friend…
