Mongolian BBQ or just good food in the UCI area?
I was wondering if anyone knew of a Mongolian BBQ place in the UCI area. Just came here for grad school and can't find one. Any suggestions? Saw an old post from '02 but that place is gone...
Any help would be great.
Also if anyone has any new places to suggest, I would welcome ANY recommendations. Honestly, getting tired of the food in the University Center.
Let's see, I'm finishing up my ungraduate work at UCI-I don't know about Mongolian BBQ but here are some places that I've discovered to get me by. Anjin on Bristol not too far from Southcoast is a clean, delicious Japanese grill your own meat type place. It's a little pricey though and be sure to get the tongue if you go. Fukada near the Spectrum. serves some good soba and udon and their unagi-don is my favorite (be sure to get the brown rice). On Jeffrey and Walnut, there's a Nice Time Deli in the 99 Ranch Plaza that have some yummy Taiwanese fare, Ay Chung Noodle House in the same plaza is supposed to be good too. Across the way in the plaza where Taiko (very popular sushi place) is El Conejo, my favorite Mexican food joint in the area. If you're itching for Thai food, there's Thai Kitchen on Barranca. Let's see-I think that's plenty for now. Oh, and Wholesome Choice market in the Rite Aid plaza on Culver has tons of stuff to choose from, there's like a whole food court in there. Hope this helps! Oh, and here's elmomonster's food blog it's a great source. http://elmomonster.blogspot.com/

They have Mongolian BBQ here, but I haven't ordered it lately so I can't really comment on it.
There's not great mongolian BBQ near UCI. If you can make the trek out to Mainplace mall in Santa Ana (5 freeway at Main) inside the food court there is a Genghis Khan's mongolian bbq chain. It's a food court place, one bowl per order (not all you can eat), and is about $6 for one trip. They do it pretty decent there, if you don't mind the fast food atmosphere.
There is no Mongolian BBQ anywhere around UCI. My Favorite places around you are Pho Bac ky (as you've heard), House of Shabu Shabu on Jeffery/Walnut
