A reader named Julie let us know about a growing chain called Genghis Grill. It’s a fun Mongolian-style restaurant, where you build your own bowl, and watch them grill it up for you. You pick the base, the protein, the vegetables, and the sauce, almost all of which are dairy free!
Dairy-Free Menu Guide to Genghis Grill
How’s this for a menu guide:
- Everything but Fried Rice and Dessert
Their customer service told us that everything on their main menu is dairy-free, except for the Fried Rice, which is made with butter. You’ll also want to go elsewhere for dessert. But they said that all of their proteins, vegetables, bases (aside from the fried rice), seasonings, sauces, and appetizers are made without dairy. Of course, you’ll want to check in store to make sure no ingredients have changed and that nothing has been added to their menu.
Their menu is heavily Asian influenced in flavor, with sauces like Thai peanut and kung pao. But they also use spices, and have options like tomato sauce and pasta. In fact, their fajita-style bowl is quite popular, and it can be ordered with tortillas.
But What About Cross Contamination with the Ingredients & Grill?
According to Julie, the manager can get fresh ingredients from the back if you are concerned about cross contamination. And according to the company’s customer service, they’re also happy to segregate your meal when cooking.
Please note, we are able to cook your meal separately on the grill, upon request, so be sure to tell your server and grill master if you have an allergy to ensure the appropriate precautions are taken.
More Special Diet Notes
They have a nutrition guide online that includes full ingredient lists for all of their sauces – after all of the nutrition facts. They also offer cabbage, in lieu of grains, for paleo diners, and cabbage or rice for gluten-free diners. Aside from spices, their Mongo BBQ and Sweet & Sour sauces are also listed as “gluten friendly.”
