Yesterday my mom came over and treated my hubby and I to lunch at BD's Mongolian Barbeque. Of course, baby was there too but he isn't quite big enough to eat that sort of food yet. Poor little guy! Just doesn't know what he is missing!
For those of you that haven't ever heard of this restaurant, let me tell you about it. You go in, get seated, and order your drinks. You then have the choice of having just the meat and veggie bar, the soup and salad bar or both. The prices vary depending on what you pick. After that you make your way up to the food. You are basically creating your own stir fry.
We always start with the soup and salad bar. Then it is off to the meat bar. On here they have all kinds of raw meat: steak, pork, chicken, shrimp and more. You take a bowl and put in whatever meats you want. Head over to the veggie bar and add any veggies you want to your same bowl. Some of the veggies to choose from are green onions, broccoli, zucchini, squash, carrots, and more. Once you have your bowl piled high with your meat and veggies it's time to go get you some seasonings. Here you take a different small bowl and put any liquid flavorings you want like terriyaki sauce, soy sauce, marinara sauce, among many other choices. After you have your liquid flavorings you pick what powder seasonings you want and add them to your liquid ones. They have garlic, pepper, season salt, and a lot more to choose from.
Once you have both bowls with all you want in them you go up to the counter that goes around this large grill. You give it to the people grilling and they cook it right there in front of you. They cook your meat and veggies first then add your seasonings on right at the end so you won't lose the flavor while it is cooking. They then put it all on a plate for you and you head back to your table. At the table they bring you white rice, flour tortillas, or both to eat along with your combination you made.
It really is a good restaurant in my opinion. It's almost like you make your own food. I mean, besides the grilling part you do put it all together yourself. My mom had never been there before. About a few weeks ago a friend of mine, my mom, my baby, and myself had gone there to eat. Mom loved it SO much that is where she wanted to eat at again yesterday. It really is a good deal for the amount of food you get and the price you pay. They have an option of an all you can eat but we never have room to go back more than once!
If you have a BD's Mongolian Barbeque near you and have yet to try it I suggest you do! I hope you will be as pleased with it as we are! If mom has her way, I'm sure we'll be eating there again really soon! You can go here and check it out online if you'd like.
