At the rear of the Palm Plaza on Thousand Oaks Boulevard, is an eartery called Wok ‘n South. It is a Mongolian barbecue, and it replaces a restaurant that was just named Mongolian Barbecue. If you have eaten at one, you know that you go through a line similar to a buffet, and pick raw beef or chicken, vegetables, maybe noodles, and then you can add a variety of sauces to suit your individual liking. The next step is to hand your bowl to the chef and he cooks your meal on a domed grill. The end dish is unlike any other Asian food, and has a very unique flavor.
Lunch at Wok ‘n South is a one-tripper through the buffet line, but dinner is all you can eat. They have a lunch price and a higher dinner price. Try it you might like it!
I remember the first restaurant like this that I went to some years ago. It was Colonel Lee’s Mongolian Barbecue in Northridge. The owner said he was a Colonel in the Mongolian army and the food was cooked on metal shields placed over a fire. The Colonel stood ramrod-straight with a haughty look on his face, like he was daring you to challenge his title! He talked of franchising for a while, but I never did see another place with the same name.
Thank you for the review, Dances in Rain! The address of Wok ‘n South is 2691 E. Thousand Oaks Boulevard, a few blocks west of Skyline.
