Legend has it that nomadic Mongolian soldiers under the warrior Genghis Khan, devised their unique grilling technique sometime if the 13th century, while migrating across the steppes of east central
It is very cool -
First you select a sauce at your table - they have things like Chilli & Garlic, Lime Curry and Coconut & Sesame
Then you go up to a section they call the Food Market and select what you would like to eat - There are four sections - two have a selection of vegetables (Different types of mushrooms, onions, peppers, carrots, beansprouts and various noodles), one has herbs and spices (Chilli, garlic, ginger, coriander to name but a few) and meat (They had lamb, beef, pork, chicken and.......wait for it.......crocodile!!) and the last one has a selection of fresh fish (Salmon, tuna, prawns, squid - can't remember the other ones).
Then you basically hand the whole thing over to the chef who cooks it on a hot plate using the sauce that you chose and it's delivered to your table with a bowl of complimentary rice.
There is no limit to what you can have and you can be your own chef, creating a dish that is exactly what you want, without having to either chop things or cook things - Brilliant!! (Although they do have the cheesy line 'tame the appetite of the warrior within you' but I think I may be able to forgive them that!!)
We had a lovely night - we both wanted to try the crocodile but decided that we would share a bowl (It might have been disgusting) and that we would save it till last but by the time we had had a meat bowl (Chris had lamb and I had beef) and a fish bowl (Tuna for me and salmon for Chris) we were both absolutely stuffed. Although I have to say that we both tried the strangest textured mushroom (It is called a Coral Mushroom - see picture) we have ever had.....it looked like it was going to be really soft and melt in the mouth but was actually a bit crunchy - not chewy....crunchy. I remain unconvinced but Chris liked it (Always thought the boy was a bit weird!!). Ah well, we'll just have to go back another time to try the crocodile and the deep fried vanilla ice cream (It's not just Scotland!!)
