I posted about Let’s Jam Cafe and my disappointment with a bland Tsuivan (Mongolian noodle stew) just 10 days ago. Since then Let’s Jam has come out of the closet as a Mongolian Cafe, and now simply identifies itself as “Mongol Cafe” on its exterior signage.
I returned to check out the Buuz (Mongolian steamed dumplngs) and was not disappointed this time. Ten large hand-formed steamed dumplings, served piping hot, enclosed savory, coarsely ground beef and a bit of rich “soup.” It was a twenty-minute wait for them, mid-afternoon, but worth the wait to have something made to order; anyway, I’d nowhere to go on this pleasant June afternoon.
It’s good that two casual Mongolian food venues, one on either side of the Bay have come out from hiding in plain sight on both sides of the Bay. Let’s Jam/Mongol Cafe and Asian Grill/Togi’s have enough dishes in common to give us the opportunity for comparisons. I intend to take full advantage of it.
