Restaurant Review: Hot Bowl Mongolian Grill

         A new restaurant popped up in Riverpark Center in place of Cliff’s and many were left wondering what this new eatery even was. Hot Bowl Mongolian Grill, across from Whataburger, opened this past August and has been serving stir-fry ever since.

         When you walk into Hot Bowl, you are greeted by one of their hostesses, who are all very friendly. You are seated at either a booth or table and given a checklist to mark your name, table, and type of rice/noodles so your food can be delivered in an efficient way. You then are given two bowls, one for vegetables and one for your meat/seafood. After that, you will make your way up to the line to select your veggies, meat, spices, and sauce. You’ll give your selections and checklist to the chef and your meal will be out in about 5-10 minutes.

         Hot Bowl is a convenient place to eat when you have about 30 minutes of time and are in the mood for stir-fry. The place is efficient and the combinations of rice, noodles, meat, seafood, veggies, and sauces are endless. The employees are friendly, and as a returning costumer, they try to build a relationship with you and ask how you are.

         Unfortunately, Hot Bowl does have a drawback. With meal costing $11, plus a drink and a small tip, the grand total for one person is about $15. That is quite a bit of money in my opinion for a meal there. I could get a steak at Saltgrass for about the same price.  Or I could just walk across the road and have a burger at Whataburger and save ten dollars.

         So really, it depends on your personal opinion. Are you willing to spend $15 for quick lunch or meal? If you were, I would definitely recommend Hot Bowl to you.

         Hot Bowl is located on 17440 W Grand Pkwy S. in Sugar Land.
