Growling stomachs can hamper stealth operations, spoil belly dances, and, in extreme cases, induce dogs to attack. Quiet whimpering tummy tones with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of customized stir-fry dishes and drinks at bd’s Mongolian Grill’s Lakeland location.
The grill virtuosos at bd’s Mongolian Grill compose sizzling stir-fry masterpieces with fresh ingredients individually selected by hungry patrons. Chicken, seafood, tofu, and other candidates vie for election into stir-fry bowls ($12.99 for dinner, $8.99 for lunch) as noodle-slinging allegations about illegitimate legume trading run rampant. Vegetarian bowls ($10.99 for dinner, $7.99 for lunch) brim with flavorful produce, and all dishes can be mixed with a choice of white or brown rice or swathed in a tortilla or lettuce cocoon. Ambitious diners can savor any of bd’s nearly two dozen sauces, such as chili-garlic or shiitake mushroom, in unlimited bowls ($15.99 for dinner, $11.98 for lunch), which, much like the fake deaths in a soap opera, are endless. Wash down culinary creations with a specialty libation, such as a Hawaiian Volcano, or tipple a pint of refreshing Sam Adams or Blue Moon from bd’s taps.
bd’s Mongolian Grill
While it takes prodigious skill to man the 600-degree, 7-foot grill that is the center of bd’s Mongolian Grill’s dining room, the chefs running it don’t have any secret recipes. Instead, customers fashion their own customizable bowls of stir-fry according to their taste preferences, dietary restrictions, and desired portion size. Guests wander, nearly overwhelmed as they choose from an array of meats and veggies and ladle sweet, spicy, and herb-filled sauces into a cup. Chefs sauté the meal in front of their eyes, swords flicking skillfully across the grill to entertain and build anticipation like a mime about to jump buses on an invisible motorcycle. The resulting stir-fry dishes are accompanied by brown rice, white rice, tortillas or lettuce wraps.
