El Camino Real has a new tenant: MP Mongolian BBQ opened its doors recently in the spot formerly home to Deeelish in Menlo Park, next to Beverages & More.

The new restaurant, located at 700 El Camino Real, is owned by Jenny Ma, who ran Su's Mongolian BBQ in Santa Clara with her husband for about 32 years and had many customers clamoring for a Menlo Park location, said manager Lue Tao, who also happens to be her son.

The Menlo Park restaurant serves up Mongolian BBQ in an all-you-can-eat buffet style, where customers pay a base price ($11.99 for lunch, $13.99 for dinner) that allows them to fill their plate as many times as they like. It also offers beer and wine.

When asked what their most popular dish is, Mr. Tao said that lies in the eye of the beholder. "Anything you can imagine is basically our signature dish. It's up to the customer, so that's our main selling point."

The restaurant, which seats about 70 and has seven employees, is open Monday through Saturday, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and 5 to 9 p.m. The telephone number is 853-1118.

Catering company Deeelish didn't go very far; it's now at 425 El Camino Real.

I just wanted to add a note to say that this is a very welcome restaurant to Menlo Park. Parking is a breeze and you can create you own meal with flavoring and seasoning to your own choices. This is also a very good value and perfect place for younger (and sometimes) picky diners. The ice cream machine is a nice addition also.

Also the owner, Jenny Ma is very pleasant and cordial. I extend my sympathy to her on the tragic loss of her husband only a couple of weeks ago. I am sure he is very pleased with your new store. Good Luck with the new venture.
