For dinner last night we went to one of our new favorite spots in Jacksonville: Mongolian House! I have always heard good things about this place, but Dustin and I didn't make it out to try the place until a week ago. The restaurant is a lot like hibachi-style, except that it is set up as a buffet. You grab an empty bowl and can fill it up with lo mein noodles, all sorts of fresh-cut veggies, and thinly sliced raw meat. At first the sound of raw meat totally sounded sketchy to me, but it looks like it might be frozen to keep it fresh and it tastes SOOO good. You use a ladle to choose your own combination of tasty sauces (I used the house and wine sauces together - yum!). Then their chef takes your bowl of goodies and cooks it on a giant grill using just a couple of sticks to push it around. You head back to your table with your yummy custom meal, and can even go up for seconds (if you have room).
I think this place will be our new go-to spot when we are craving Chinese/Japanese/etc. If you are in the Lejeune area and haven't checked this place out yet, you should go! I have already told my mom all about it, and when she comes in August, we are definitely going again!
