My daughter had just received her Brown Belt so to celebrate, she said she wanted Dairy Queen. I asked if she wanted Frozen Custard instead, and she said YES. But first, I said, we need to eat lunch. I gave her a number of restaurants to choose from near where she received her Brown Belt and she chose Genghis Grill. It sounds fun, she said.
It’s been a while since our family had Mongolian BBQ. Before we had kids, my husband and I enjoyed Mongolian BBQ when we used to live in Hampton, VA, and in different parts of California.
Our last Mongolian BBQ meal in downtown DC, however, I would like to forget. It was a place in Chinatown that was fancy in decor but the food still tasted like what you’d get at a typical Mongolian BBQ restaurant. When we got the bill…Holy Khan, it was $25 per person! For a bowl of noodles and meat! I couldn’t justify paying that much for the same quality of food I used to get at Mongolian BBQ restaurants in the malls of California.
So now, here we are at Genghis Grill and I’m trying not to have flashbacks of our last Mongolian BBQ experience. The price was around $9 per person, less for kids. Ok, this is doable.
I like when the eating experience is fun, and it kind of was. The”rules” are posted on the wall:
