Is this the best value dinner in SW London?

Mongolian Grill, North Street, Clapham

Like the Mongolian BBQ mini-chain that was around ten years ago, this is more of a group night out than a quiet dinner a deux. The food is better though!

The tables are set up with a hotplate in the middle, Korean-style, on which you can either cook your meat or place a big bowl of broth for hotpot dipping. There are about 6 stocks to choose from. Then choose from an array of king prawns, squid, white fish, chicken, beef, lamb, pork, pigs ears, trotters, tripe, shiitake mushroom, clouds ear, aubergine, lettuce, cabbage, morning glory, onions, peppers, noodles, the list goes on. Mix up a dipping sauce, cook in broth or on grill, repeat.

I thought this was worth mentioning as a) it's only £12.50 per person, and b) you can make it as Houndish as you want so it's a good place for mixed groups. If you want half the stock bowl to have the spicy szechaun stock filled with pigs ears, your less adventurous friends can have chicken poached in chicken stock in the other half.

An interesting addition to the neighbourhood :)
