Restaurant Review: Mongolian Quick-Stop

Published on November 10, 2010

People close to me know that I don’t splurge on gadgets, branded clothes and expensive shoes. I only spend on books and out-of-town trips once in a while. But if there’s one thing that I don’t mind spending, it is definitely on food. But our wedding preparations are forcing us to tighten our belts. It was nice though that Mongolian Quick-Stop was in sight when we were looking for a place to have an affordable lunch.

We were in front of the restaurant when an old Chinese guy asked us if we love vegetables. I nodded but Boyet didn’t answer. He was so nice to explain to us their menu and told us that they offer something for vegetable lovers. Apparently, they have an eat-all-you-can option for the health-conscious. Customers have the option to choose any of the vegetables, seafood or meat on the counter and top them on a bowl of rice. But since we were not that hungry and we were working on a budget, we discarded the idea and went for a simple rice bowl.

I got their Szechuan Chicken rice bowl. With the sound of Szechuan enters the word spicy on my mind. Being a lover of spicy foods, I enjoyed my simple yet affordable lunch. It has just the right hint of hotness balanced with the sweetness of the sauce, white onions and green bell peppers. Boyet went for their Glazed Beef with Egg. The sweet sauce went very well with the tender beef strips.

Boyet was craving for tokwa’t baboy so he got their Mixed Tofu with Pork. It was supposed to come as our starter but it came last on our table despite the server’s effort to tell the people from the kitchen to prepare it beforehand. What’s different from their version of the tokwa’t baboy is that they don’t use pork fats. So this indeed is best for the hearty eaters.

Were we happy? Of course! We just spent PHP295 for lunch! On our way out, the same guy who greeted us who looks like the owner asked us if we enjoyed our lunch. We both smiled and nodded. He shook our hands and waved goodbye. That only proves that there are still places that offer good and reasonably-priced food served with great customer service.
