If you haven’t been to bd’s Mongolian Grill, bd’s encourages guests to “Stir It Up, Your Way” allowing guests to build their own stir-fry with “Always Market Fresh” ingredients. bd’s offers a variety of choice meats and seafood, veggies & flavor-packed sauces, all freshly cooked (Mongolian-style) on a large, flat top grill. This is an ultra fun way to try out new veggies, meats and fish for your kids!
First, this is not a quiet restaurant and so sound sensitive kids and parents be warned. However, you also don’t need to worry about your loud children, since it’s a fun, casual atmosphere! I think it might be challenging wiht little kids, since you choose what you want to eat and the wall around the grill is pretty high (not sure if really little ones would see enough to enjoy it) but my teenagers loved it – and I loved the “all you can eat” option. Anyone with teens or even hungry pre-teens will love that!
This summer bd’s has partnered with Litehouse® Foods, a Grand Rapids, Michigan-based company, to bring three unique sauces into their mix: Sesame Ginger, Honey Lime and Cherry Vinaigrette.
You can use these any way you want and partner them with some of the yummy ingredients on their food bars. Some example recipes:
- Cherry Glazed Pork: Carrots, Water Chestnuts, Bean Sprouts, and Green Onions, Litehouse® Cherry Vinaigrette, and Cherry Glazed Pork
- Sesame Ginger White Fish: Tong of Pea Pods, Bok Choy, Carrots, Green Onions, Litehouse® Sesame Ginger Sauce, and White Fish
- Honey Lime Chicken: Green Peppers, Onions, and Green Onions, Litehouse® Honey Lime Sauce, and Chicken
- Honey Lime Infused Crawfish: Noodles (Your Choice), Green Beans, Spinach (from the Salad Bar), Carrots, Green Onions, Baby Corn, Litehouse® Honey Lime Sauce, and Crawfish
Much to my kids dismay I tried the Crawfish and they were yummy (I managed to eat them to the gags of my children and my husband), but the kids found many ingredients they loved and came up with unique meals for themselves.
On top of all of this, bd’s likes to give back and so be sure to check out their No Kid Hungry® and the Dine Out for No Kid Hungry program.
On September 23, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., participating bd’s Mongolian Grill restaurants will donate 20 percent from every check to No Kid Hungry when a guest mentions “No Kid Hungry.”
Additionally, now through September, bd’s Mongolian Grill corporate locations will donate 50 cents to No Kid Hungry with every Banana Split Cheesecake purchased. Guests will also receive double the points on the My bd’s Rewards App for each Banana Split Cheesecake purchased.
Last year, bd’s raised $2000 for the No Kid Hungry campaign. No Kid Hungry funds are used to raise awareness about child hunger in the U.S., create public-private partnerships that align kids with the resources they need, support nutrition programs like School Breakfast and Summer Meals, and educate kids and their families on how to cook healthy meals with limited resources.
