Not too long ago I had a chance to meet Jonathan Gold, the Pulitzer award winning food writer for the LA Weekly. I know what you're thinking, did I ask him for a recommendation? Of course I did! This is one of two places he recommended to me personally, and I'm so excited to finally come visit this place.

Mon Land is a Mongolian hotpot place with some Northern Chinese cuisine tossed in for good measure. I really can't vouch for whether real Mongolians eat this, as far as I know they have a lot of Yak and not a lot of squid or tofu, but it's marketed as such and I hear it's quite popular in China. Hot pot is almost the Chinese equivalent to a roasted turkey, as it's often served for large family parties for holidays and festivals.
