Dining Out Successfully at Mongolian Grill
My next dining out adventure takes me to bd’s Mongolian Grill. It is a unique franchise restaurant where you actually have the ability to pick out what items you want to eat in your stir-fry. The staff then cooks your food right in front of you. A plus for dialysis patients is you can stack up protein in your stir-fry bowl to help reach your protein goal for the month.
