Its decor may be restrained, but the food is not. Kong Luh's vast menu offers Mongolian specialties such as boor-boor ($4.45 for six), a crisp and flavorful version of the typically greasy Peking dumplings on every Chinese menu in town. The unusual combination of celery pork noodles ($5.25) plays crisp celery against tender pieces of pork in a mildly spicy sauce. Cuan lamb soup, a traditional Mongolian lamb-noodle soup, is the most expensive item in the noodle category at $7.50.
Kong Luh, located at 9 Medford Street, in Arlington, is open from 11:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, until 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from noon to 10 p.m. on Sunday. Call 643-2456.
