Create your own Stir Fry Oct 31, 2011
Saturday I went to BD's to cash in my free birthday meal and eat like a king. BD's is a place where you sit down and a table where you wait for your server to take drink/appetizer orders. When she comes back you receive a bowl to go create your own stir fry.
First off, BD's setting is just like your average buffet place. Tables, a bar, booths, etc etc but what is different is instead of picking food that is already cooked you get to go up with a bowl and pick out a variety of raw meat, vegetable, spices and sauces so that chefs can cook it on a large circular fryer.
When you are seated the server comes up to you and asks if you what drinks and if you want an appetizer. After she comes back you automatically receive one bowl to start off with. Dinner and lunch prices are different but after the first bowl its an extra $2 dollars for unlimited bowls after that.
Once you receive a bowl you go up to the buffet a pick from a variety of seafood, beef, chicken, pork for your meats, some sort of noodles, vegetables and then a 8-12 sauces and spices each. After you have your plate piled up you go up to the counter before the fryer where they take your bowl and pour your contents into the grill where they cook it. Usually they try to make jokes, sing, use large metal sicks to chop up and move your food around. Basically, entertain you for a tip. After your food is done they put it on a plate for you to eat. Afterwards if you have some food leftover you can pay 2.99 to have it boxed up as a to go.
I've been doing this for a while so I have found a way to get the biggest bang for one bowl. If you want a ton of food on your first try with some to spare with out paying an extra bowl you have two options.
1. Pile on the light meat and vegetables on the bottom of the bowl but DO NOT get the noodles. Then you go back and pill the heavy meat on top to push the rest down and stabilize the bowl. Since you receive rice/tortillas for free you can use the whole bowl of rice as carbs and that could fill you up on one bowl with some sides.
2. Preferred method. For the bowl with the most amount of meat/noodles/vegetables you must first layer the bottom with vegetables/meats that are lighter and apt to move around more like meatballs, jalapeno peppers, onions, shrimp, scallops, etc etc. Once you have those should put a layer of heavier meats like your chicken, steak, pork on top help push down the lighter stuff on the bottom. Next you should put your layer of noodles and random vegetables on top since these still do have a chance of falling but not as much as the lighter stuff. Finally comes your heaviest meats. This huge top layer is designed to push the stuff beneath even more for extra room and since these meats are heavy they have a much better chance of creating a tall peak to which you can pile on.
