Anyone been to Gobi Mongolian BBQ House in Silver Lake?

I just noticed it was open and grabbed a menu. Lunch is $7 and dinner is $14. Looks like they serve alcohol. Small parking lot. Next to that newish pizza place and that lesbian S&M shop.

Mongolian BBQ was the thing to do in high school In Connecticut on a date and I haven't had it many years. Since I have a wheat allergy I doubt I will be able too now.

    Went last night & thought it was very good. Healthy & yes, it was one "of those old-school places where you pick out the food and they stir fry it in front of you ".

    They had 4 choices of meats : pork, sirloin, chicken & lamb + a large "vegetable " bar of items (including tofu ) and then noodles. All kinds of sauces to add & suggestions about combinations of sauces to try.

    Pile everything in a bowl (and pile high, because it cooks down a lot ) and hand it to the cook, who cooks it there in front of you & hands it back to you on a plate.

    White & brown rice was also available for an additional dollar.
    They do have beer & soju.

    Seems like a fun place for kids as well-the kid's price is cheaper.
    Did not see if they had high chairs.

    They also brought us out some warm sesame rolls, which were yummy & kind of "Hot Pocket " tasting-in a comforting , good way.

    Very clean & well run.
    Free Parking in the lot next door.
    Yes, it is owned by the Pazzo Gelato people & they do serve gelato.

    BTW-the pizza place (Andiamo) is out of business.

      Interestingly, one of the people from Pazzo Gelato said Gobi was owned by the Pazzo owner.

      Beer, wine, soju:

        I had gelato tonight and saw the sign. Thought that was very odd. Is it one of those old-school places where you pick out the food and they stirfry it in front of you? I'm hoping it is something different.
