Haven't you found that all the meats taste the same?




The sauces - they're really more like sauce concentrates - are so strongly flavored that it's easy to overdo them and drown out the actual taste of the meats.  Sausage usually rises above that, though, and it's my preferred meat at a Mongolian BBQ.  The meatballs they had at the place I recently went to were equally good.

The places around here all seem to be the hybrid variety, and I wish they served lamb as an option.


Me too!
 
I actually ate at what claimed to be the first Mongolian Barbeque outside of Mongolia in Taiwan in the middle 1970's.
 
When they started popping up in CA in the 1980's it was mostly lamb.
 
One ones around us here in TX have shrimp, but no lamb.  I doubt there are shrimp anywhere within a 1000 miles of Mongolia.  But then I like pineapple in mine and you probably won't find it in Mongolia either.

Nothing like a Brazier/Wok full of Suki-Yaki over flames on the counter in front of you, with a smaller Hibachi covered with grilling "Beef&Chicken" Yaki-Tori Sticks (wanna bet about the "Beef"?)
ADD bowl of steaming Tomago Gohan (white rice with a raw egg broken over it) and slowly cooking into the rice as you take bites out of the bowl,...
All this for Y500 ($1.39) on the old exchange rate, served in a small cafe in mid-winter in a town on Hokkaido, Japan, about the equal to a suburban Wisconsin town of about 15,000.
OH Yeah , Very Mild and Very Hot Green Tea in tiny cups to sip with it. The cooking devices on the counter did more than cook the food, they heated the building also !
 
Here is an example of a local Saki House and Cafe in a Japanese city near our base back in the 60's.
The place had been closed for health reasons and was just reopened when these photos were taken in 1962.

The EM Club in Yokosuka Japan used to have a great one back in the 80's and 90's. For a Navy Base it was top notch.

Is there ANY difference between a Mongolian Grill and a Mongolian Barbeque?? We have a popular Mongolian Barbeque in Brick and it's fun and good food!

Lee, I think they are one and the same.
Both descriptors are as close to real "Mongolian" as  Famous Dave's is to Texas BBQ

The one I go to here in Mission Viejo has lamb. Definitely my meat of choice for Mongolian BBQ.

The lamb you're all talking about...  is it shaved as thin as paper like the other meats?
 
I may have overlooked it.

Yes it is. Fill almost the whole bowl with it and you'll have enough---it shrinks!

IIRC, there is one of these setups in the very good buffet restaurant at the Turning Stone Casino in NYS between Syracuse and Utica.
