Lunch at Hu Hot Mongolian Grill

We had an activity today with the jr. high kids.  It's the end of spring break, and what better way to enjoy it than to go to Hu Hot and then play a few games of volleyball? Some of the teens had never been to this restaurant before, so for them, it was quite the experience.

The restaurant is located in the old part of town. This building, like many others, is made of brick.

The first thing we had to do was fill our little bowls with raw meat, vegetables, oils and sauces. Chicken, beef and fish are the main meat choices and the veggie section is a well-stocked salad bar!

After you get your bowl filled, you wait in line until one of these cooks takes your bowl and places it on the huge grill.  The aroma is awesome and it's so fun to watch how these guys get several bowls cooked at the same time.

Here are two of our guys, Grant and Jon, enjoying their meal. Forks are given, but several of the teens chose to use chopsticks.

Below is my first bowl (yup, I had seconds!)--doesn't it look scrumptious? I love chicken and noodles. I also added broccoli, peppers, mushrooms and onions. Crunchy noodles and sesame seeds were added to the top! We were so full of our food and wondered how we would play volleyball when we got back to church.  We managed somehow--and had a great time!

Wow! That looks like fun! Not sure I'm that adventurous with my food though.
