ISO Mongolian speaker to translate Pizza-Rama menu (Oakland)

I posted an initial report on this Mongolian restaurant/pizzeria in the "Strange, weird or hidden places to eat in the East Bay" thread:
http://www.chowhound.com/topics/39702...

While I was waiting for the food to come out, I wrote down most of the Mongolian menu (I skipped over most of column one, as I was told it was "all soup", but now I've read up a little on Mongolian soups, I may go back and copy the rest of it down.) Spent some time on Google trying to figure out the menu - have a couple of items translated, but wanted to see if there's anyone out there who can help translate the rest.

figured out so far:

guriltai shul - noodle soup with meat and noodle strips
khuushuur - fried meat dumpling
buuz - steamed dumpling
bansh - boiled dumpling
manti buuz - dumpling with yeasted dough wrapper (I'm picturing something like char siu bao
)budaatai khuurga - stew with rice, veg, meat
goulash - you guys know goulash

I think khuurga means meat, and budaa means stew.

I didn't copy far enough down on the soup list, but they probably have bantan (soup with meat and dough crumbs)

So here's the part of the menu I copied and couldn't figure out - one caveat - I just realized that the symbol representing the "g" sound looks a lot like the symbol representing "t", so my transliterations may be off.
