Kublai Khan's Mongolian Eat-All-You-Can
With the need of breakfast for kings, we roamed around Cebu for good eats. And we only had one rule, find a place that we do not have in Lipa. Finally, we reached an Ayala mall where we set foot to Kublai Khan's Mongolian Eat-All-You-Can.
I'm not really a big fan of eat all you can because more often than not, the food is tasteless or expensive and probably life threatening. Lol.
But here, you get 3 major choices: Eat All You Can, All You Can Fill Bowl, Check A Bowl. You also get to choose meals per bowl and desserts. And so we settled for the All You Can Fill Bowl wherein you just fill your bowl with meat, veggies, and spices from an array of choices and the cook will put it over fire.
So I carefully put together my meal with spring onions, red pepper, sweet potatoes, beef, pork, chicken, squid balls, garlic, ginger, sesame seeds, teriyake sauce, barbeque sauce, rice and other random sauces and spices available. After that, I just handed it to the waitress and waited for my concoction to come together.
Upon seeing my cooked mixed rice, I felt overwhelmed and thought that I would not be able to finish it. Partly because it was filled to the rim and also because I drank 2 glasses of lemonade while waiting for it.
But the taste was just right for me. It was not too salty as most restaurant prepared food and it was because I made it that way. I bet anyone can be a kitchen superstar when eating here. Ha ha. But, on the other hand, things can go very wrong when this get to the control of someone who has not even a basic inkling of how flavors work. Oh well, I see only 0.0001% of this happening. And besides, the worst thing that could happen is them tasting something they could not fully enjoy or consume to the last grain.
So there you go. I would definitely recommend the place for those who are not in a much hurry. The place is affordable and fun to be in - you'd be entertained with all the aphorisms that Kublai Khan has.
