MP Mongolian BBQ opens in Menlo Park

• New buffet-style restaurant moves in next to BevMo.

by Elena Kadvany

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

The new restaurant, located at 700 El Camino Real, opened three weeks ago. Owner Jenny Ma 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 was at the restaurant this afternoon and found it to be inexpensive for the quality and amount of food. But i think the sign out front on El Camino ,needs to be bigger....almost missed the place,the first time. Will most likely visit the place at least twice a week .
