Though the Great Wall of China has won the accolades of history, the Great Backscratcher of Mongolia, built to reach any itchy corner across the nation, saved more lives than can be counted on a single hand. Feast upon equally ingenious Mongolian creations with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of Mongolian stir-fry and more at Mongolian Grill in University Plaza.
Located a mere 10 yards from the University of Waterloo, chefs at Mongolian Grill wait at an enormous grill, waiting to cook stir-fry creations assembled by diners at a bounteous buffet. Guests can create their own stir-fry meal in one bowl for lunch ($8.49, $9.99 for stir-fry with soup and salad), or dinner ($17.99 for unlimited stir-fry, $15.99 Monday through Wednesday; all stir-fry dinners include complimentary soup and salad). Choose from myriad meats, a variety of vegetables, a smorgasbord of sauces, and a slew of spices. Enjoy a tropical or classic cocktail at Outer Mongolia, where chefs and patrons alike can unwind. The family-friendly atmosphere provides edibles for everyone, even eccentric uncles who subsist on soy sauce packets.
