I can not lie to you: Mongolian food is not my favorite. For that reason, during the 11 days I spent in Ulaan Baatar I had to search for alternatives that were a little different from the soup dumplings or potato, carrot and cabbage. One of my best discoveries was the Taj Mahal restaurant on the top floor of UB Hotel, opposite Lenin Square. If you look like a backpacker, they can give a little hesitation going through the reception, but do not worry because they are used to it: once you go towards the elevator. The kitchen of Taj Mahal is led by an Indian chef, so the food can not be more authentic.
