Finally, I am caught up on Ye Olde Blog with a quick look at our April Posse dinner which took place at Genghis Khan, a Mongolian Grill eatery. I had sampled the spicy delights of Mongolian BBQ before, but this was Keith's first run. He totally dug it; it's a world of good food for a low price. After ordering drinks (Keith's a refreshing concoction called a Snapdragon, mine a mind-opening Bloody Samari with sake and wasabi), we joined our Posse cohorts, including Kiko's dad Larry, at the buffet to choose the ingredients for our dinner. There's a plethora of tasty possibilities to choose from, everything from seafood to tofu. I went with thinly sliced pork, jalapeno slices, sesame seeds, broccoli, red pepper, edamame and egg noodles in a spicy sauce of soy, Sriracha, sesame and onion oils and tangy vinegar. I handed my ingredients to the grillmasters who cooked it all up on a gigantic, steaming grill with long wooden boards in a version of the ancient way of Mongolian cooking.
The meal AND the Samari were a senses-clearing meal of spicy deliciousness.
