Back on the first, my birthday, my friend [personal profile] kengr took me to Chang's Mongolian Grill for the first time ever. A bonus was that because it was my birthday, I got my meal free!

Chang's Mongolian Grill is this awesome Chinese buffet place where they have the raw ingredients (including frozen meat slices) on a buffet, you get what you want in one or two bowls, including sauce, and you take it over to this huge round grill thing where the chefs cook it up for you and hand the finished product back to you. And it's an all-you-can-eat buffet, so if you're willing to stand around waiting for your turn to have your food cooked, then you can go up as many times as you're able (in theory; they might cut you off if you eat too much).

What's more, the food is AMAZING!! I tried a bunch of different ingredient and sauce combos, and nothing tasted bad or even meh, it was all "HOLY HELL MY TASTE BUDS ARE GOING TO EXPLODE WITH PLEASURE!" I think I went up four times, and when I was done I was stuffed like a turducken.

It's a bit spendy, but man, for food that great, and that much of it, it's worth the price! But definitely for special occasions.

I loved the food and the service so much I left a note of praise, with TWO SIDES! I never leave notes of praise! I usually just tip. But this place was worth tipping PLUS telling them in words and pictures how awesome they are.

Here's the note, under the cut:







If you're blind, or just can't read my chicken scratches, here's the transcript:

First side:

This place is great! Delicious food, awesome chefs, friendly wait staff. Definetely will come back again when I can! - Fay [picture of a smiley face sun licking its lips, a couple heart shapes, and a peace sign] More on other side. --->

Second side:

Dear Chefs, You're awesome! Your job must be so difficult, but you make it look almost easy! And you make it all delicious! Continue being amazing!!! - Fay [picture of a smiley face grinning and holding its arms out.]

Also for my birthday, Brooke/kengr got me a pair of headphones and a bluetooth speaker thing that has powerful friggin sound!

Mongolian Grills are awesome. Also called Mongolian Barbecues. There is, or maybe was, a chain called Colonel Lee's that used to be a favorite of ours when we lived in San Jose.
