Back in June I joined the UB Foodies group on Facebook. I have never considered myself to be a true "foodie," because I don't have the snobbery that goes with it; I just love to eat. But Engrish was on there, and she recommended it to me, and since I was starting to worry about running out of restaurants I went ahead and joined. Well, the Foodies have been a wellspring of information. I learned about Round Table Pizza and Joe's Corner thanks to them. I learned about two events that will feature on this weekend's blog, thanks to them. And in the last week, one of them posted about the restaurant that became Engrish's pick for tonight: The Grill Place.
Engrish ordered the broccoli soup and chicken curry, as shown in the top photo. I don't do broccoli, so I didn't try the soup, but it seems that the soups were a bit of a let down. The curry, on the other hand, had a decent flavor, and came served with rice.
The grand total for four of us stuffing our faces like...well, like a teacher who just got paid for the last time for the next two months? 49,000 tugrugs, which is pretty fantastic when you consider the conversion rate. It wouldn't buy Squeaker a second cow (coat), it wouldn't even buy me the vest I wanted if it had been there and in my size when we went back (damn it), but let's just say that if I'd known about this place over the summer, my meager savings would have gone a lot further. But then, what would I have written about in lieu of my Grub at Home posts???
The Grill Place is on Sukhbaatar Street (the one running on the west side of the square), on the west side of the street, within the block north of the former Natural History Museum.
