Nalipay Sa Lipay Mongolian BBQ

By Mustachio @mustachio2011
Three nationalities in one. This Korean-owned restaurant serving Mongolian BBQ (which is actually not a Mongolian cuisine, but was developed in Taiwan) has a Cebuano word as its name: Lipay (which means happy). Malipay kaha ko paghoman nako kaon diri? (Will I be happy after eating here?)

Lipay Mongolian BBQ is an all-you-can-eat make-your-own bowl (or bowls for the big eater) of Mongolian BBQ (meat, vegetables, and rice cooked on a griddle...nothing barbecue-y about this). You can choose what to heap on your bowl from a variety of vegetables, meats (pork, chicken, beef), and sauces. Your bowl doesn't have to overflow, you can make a new one later (it is all-you-can-eat after all). If you are not sure what's a good combination of sauces, you can ask the server to mix up some good stuff for you.

For the price of Php 350 per person, one can already have as many Mongolian BBQ bowls as one can consume, plus a serving of soup, barbecue (chicken, pork, okra), pork belly, gambas, pineapple slices, and a drink (softdrinks or beer). Tip: Go in a group, you'll get more barbecue and other stuff. I am not sure what they will serve or how much they will serve for just one diner.

Nalipay ba ko pagkaon nako diri? I did not get my money's worth because after one bowl, I was already full! But my sister, my sister who does not eat much, had more bowls than her husband! 
Best to eat here if you know your sauce combo or think you can eat three or more bowls of Mongolian BBQ.
