From June 7 through July 18, bd’s Mongolian Grill will offer new menu items including drinks, desserts, and tropically influenced recipes, and offer guests the chance to create their own signature recipe to enter the bd’s Caribbean Getaway sweepstakes. The grand prize is a six day, five night cruise for two on Carnival Cruise Lines.

Caribbean Getaway Sweepstakes:

“I can’t imagine a more exciting way to celebrate the summer than giving away a Caribbean cruise,” says Denise Head, vice president of marketing for bd’s Mongolian Grill. “bd’s has always been a destination for our guests — a place to come and escape. This sweepstakes will only enhance their bd’s experience.”

Guests may enter the recipe sweepstakes at any bd’s Mongolian Grill location. All eligible entries will be judged on taste, uniqueness, name, and ease of preparation. The highest scoring entrant from each restaurant will win a finalist prize and be entered into a random drawing for the grand prize cruise. One first prize and 20 second prizes will also be awarded.

Sun-Inspired Flavors:

During the Caribbean Getaway promotion, guests may try several special menu offerings including recipes for Jerk Chicken, Citrus Shrimp, Curried Beef, and Seafood with Island Sauce. Other new options are a mango salsa appetizer, spicy black bean and rice soup, and a bd’s beachside banana bread dessert. Coronitas buckets, piña coladas, Caribbean coolers, create-your-own lemonades, and Arnold Palmer drinks round out the limited time menu.

”Wrapping our summer event around the idea of ‘escaping’ to a vibrant, fun island atmosphere is a way for us to offer fresh, fun dining options to our guests,” Head says. “We’ve seen that consumers are increasingly interested in trying new spices and unique flavors, and the Mongolian-style of cooking at bd’s lends itself well to our new Caribbean recipes that contain familiar foods with a twist.”
