The first Tucson location of the chain restaurant Genghis Grill opens today at 4386 N. Oracle Road, No. 150. You pick from about 70 ingredients and the employees take your meal for a wok (ha!). Sorry about that.
Anyway, the legend goes that Mongolian warriors cooked their meals on their shields while away at battle, launching this tradition of cooking in large woks. Truth? Historical fiction? Either way, it makes for a slightly better blog entry than the mere opening of a Mongolian stir-fry restaurant, so there you have it.
There's more on Genghis Grill - which corporate folks tell us is the largest chain of Mongolian grill restaurants in the country - over here.
