Altai Mongolian Grill Opens Tonight
Owner Munkhsukh Dorjpurev tells Gut Check that she chose to open the restaurant here partly because she was familiar with the area after earning a master's degree at Lindenwood University and partly because, as she puts it, "I like St. Louis."
So does Altai's true Mongolian heritage set it apart from other Mongolian grills?
"We have real Mongolian sauces," Dorjpurev says, noting that it did take some time to get the flavors right using locally available ingredients. "We have extra dishes that other Mongolian grills don't, [which] are real traditional Mongolian dishes."
Altai Mongolian Grill will be open 11 a.m.-9 p.m. on weekdays and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. on the weekend.
