A New Dining Experience

tuesday night i met up with a couple of old friends, david and brian, who owned an advertising agency that i use to work for. i met them at the genghis grill in plano. i had never been to a genghis grill before so i was excited to try something new. from what i read online i knew it was a mongolian stir fry restaurant, but exactly what that was i didn't know. we met up at 6pm and the place was fairly quiet, but that wouldn't last long. david was the only one of the three of us that had eaten at a genghis grill so he was our guide for the evening. we grabbed our aluminum bowls from our table and proceeded to get in a cafeteria style line. first i was to choose my meat. out of of 8 different choices of meat i chose beef. next i was to choose my spices. i chose crushed red peppers and a garlic powder. following the seasoning i had to choose my veggies. i chose carrots, broccoli, and baby corn. next i was to choose a sauce. i decided i would go with a garlic based sauce. last but not least i chose my starch, which was brown rice. from that point a cook took my bowl from me and dumped it on the grill. a few minutes later he handed it all back to me in a big red bowl full of my now cooked ingredients. it smelled wonderful. we all went back to our table and started chowing down. i must say that i chose my ingredients wisely because my food was divine! a bit spicy even for me, but still wonderful.

since it is an all you can eat setup we all went back for seconds. this time i noticed that they had a bunch of recipe cards on the wall to help you create your dish. that is a good idea, but i felt that was for the unimaginative and decided to mix it up all by myself again. this time i decided to go sweet. my ingredients were, chicken, asian garlic powder, pineapple, oranges, broccoli, carrots, baby corn, steamed rice, and teriyaki sauce. this concoction was good, but not as good as my first.

i must say that i loved my genghis grill experience and i most definitely will return!
