Kublai Khan Crazy Mongolian Stir Fry in Houston, TX

My family tends to head to these place when we can’t decide where to go or everyone wants something a little different. I mean, you kinda get what you make at places like this, and complaints aren’t allowed. Here in Austin, we only have Mongolian Grille and Firebowl Cafe (that I know of), so while on a recent visit to Houston when my hosts suggested this place, I was all for it!

It’s a little different in that you walk in and are seated. Your drink orders are taken and you fill out a card saying what type of rice/noodles you’d like, etc. You then go up to the bar, choose your veggies and meats and sauces and leave it with your card on the counter and someone cooks it and brings it to you. Pretty awesome.

The big difference for me was that they had calamari. I. Love. Calamari. I’m not kidding, totally made my evening. Yum. They also had shitake mushrooms and all kinds of extra goodies.

The place was clean, not overly loud, a tad on the dark side inside, but a really nice evening overall. We didn’t feel rushed or hovered over. I would most definitely go back here (and hope they branch out to the Austin area.


Legend has it that centuries ago.After a long day of hunting,Chengis Khan and his Mongolian Warriors would make camp build a roaring bonfire and create extravagant feasts before retiring for the night.Using their swords,the warriors would slice meat into thin trips.These succulent morsels would then be combined with whatever vegetables incense.Spices and sauces were at hand and grilled upon the warriors upturned shields the round.Iron shiled were thrown down over the hot ambers of the bonfire.Creating a perfect cooking surface,the largest,most extravagant shiled would be used to create a special meal for mighty Khan and his fiercest warriors. At Kublai Mongolian grill we revive this ancient tradition by offering one the world’s most original dining experiences:the Mongolian grill,the centerpiece of the Mongolian grill.

Reaching temperatures of over 650┬░the grill can cook over 30 meals simultaneously.

    Hey Candy,

    Have you tried Chez Nous? We kind of stumbled on it downtown and loved it!

    We have not, I’m picky about meats (I don’t like duck (greasy) or lamb (mealy) or veal (because I just can’t do it)). So, a lot of French places are out. This looks like somewhere we could hit up for lunch though easily! Or I could get seafood.

    They are in Austin now! Off Parmer and I35. Don’t think they are open quite yet, but the signs are up!
