Bang Bang Mongolian Grill is opening in Bowie today at the Free State Shopping Center, Annapolis Road and Superior Ln
Bowie, MD 20715.Â I’ve never been to Bang Bang but I’ve been to other Mongolian grills and the concept isÂ pretty simple.Â You pick out your own meats/proteins, vegetables, sauces, and add ons and it’s chopped and grilled before you.Â From their website:
You create your own delicious and healthy quick-seared meal by selecting from dozens of fresh vegetables, beef, chicken, pork, seafood and many other delectable ingredients. You season it according to your tastes with numerous perfectly seasoned sauces and dry spices to choose from, or you can follow one of our delicious SIGNATURE recipes. Finally, you watch while your meal is seared at over 500 degrees on BangBangâ€™s huge circular grill.
Darcy Spencer from NBC Washington spotted a Chick-fil-A Food truck in (gasp) LARGO!Â Now it turns out that the truck was actually in the parking lot of the Chick-fil-A in Largo but EVEN SO, it’s a start. I can’t believe it!!! Chick-fil-A is incredibly popular in the area.Â Hopefully, it’s a sign of things to come.Â
