Our new city guide met us on the platform as usual. And took us to the hotel which we were staying at. Being super tired, from the arduous hours wasted waiting for border control to process us the night before we went straight to bed when we got to our hotel.
After explicitly expressing our wishes to have some tradtitional mongolian food, our guide takes us to a beer garden which definitely didn't scream Mongolian to us. What the? We were scratching our heads. There was only one Mongolian dish on the menu and a pretty disturbing pint of beer. Since we wanted Mongolian, we all order the same thing given the lack of choice. From what I remember it was pretty average.
With our stomachs filled we walked around town which isn't very big and went to the main square.
With no guide, and not sure where to go. We headed back to the hotel for another nap. Post nap we ventured out and since we had no idea where was good we didn't ventrue too far from the hotel. Went somewhere local for a few brews and called it a night. Ulaan Baatar is definitely not a city to party in during winter. I think we were the only toursts in Ulaan Baatar on that night.
