BD's is a chain of Mongolian restaurants with a presence in several cities in the United States, although not in the Northeast where I live. My first experience with the chain was in Denver several years ago, and it became a must stop for me whenever I was in town. While driving through the Tampa Bay area last year, I passed this outpost, and my heart soared.
BD's is as much about the dining experience as the food. There is a full bar and a selection of specialty drinks, and a selection of appetizers. However, the main focus is the stir fry. Following a visit to the unlimited soup and salad bar (OK, but not exceptional), one takes his or her bowl to the stir fry counter and fills the bowl with one of several meat and seafood selections, followed by a wide variety of veggie offerings. The next step is to mix sauces together in a separate cup. Finally, the whole thing is taken to a wok station, where the chefs grill the selection using a long spoon, then return the whole thing to you on a plate. Meanwhile, the server has brought rice to the table.
There is an option for unlimited trips to the stir-fry for $2 extra, as well as the basic one-trip offering. Unlike some other Mongolian restaurants, the price is flat-rate; the food is not by weight.
A great and fun place for kids. My septuagenarian mother found the process a little confusing, although she navigated the routine with my help and enjoyed the food and the ambiance very much.
Overall, an awful lot of fun for groups, for families, and for anyone else!
