Orlando will get a high-tech Mongolian barbecue joint when the Mongolorian opens

Hoi Nguyen, the man behind such buzzy Mills 50 concepts as King Bao, Poke Hana, Chi-Kin and Matcha House, will bring a Mongolian barbecue joint to Colonial Drive this fall.

Nguyen, along with his cousins Vinnie Le (a partner at Poke Hana Windermere) and his brother Joe Le (a partner at Chi-Kin), will open the Mongolorian, a quick-service operation that’ll take over the old Firehouse Subs space at 2217 E. Colonial Drive.

The Mongolorian will allow patrons to build their own bowls from a selection of starches, proteins, vegetables and sauces, then cook them up in front of their eyes using seven tabletop stir fryers for a showy element.

Will the Mongolorian present a true Mongolian barbecue experience and offer yak meat, or perhaps some deboned marmot? We can only hope.

Look for the restaurant to open in late October/early November.
