Say farewell to typical dinners and find new fun with an “experience meal” instead. That’s what The Man and I sought out to do on Saturday night when we ventured on over to The Melting Pot to dine on some delicious fondue – and it was seriously delicious.
I admit, we’d never been to a fondue restaurant before, in fact, as we quickly learned, we didn’t know the half about how to properly fondue. So much so that The Man was initially a little turned off when they brought out plates of raw meat for us to work with. His exact words, “We drive almost an hour, waited all this time for the meal to come, and you’re telling me we have to cook our own dinner?” It was hilarious. He was really turned off at first, but after he tasted his first bite and started experimenting with the different batters and dipping sauces he quickly came around. We ended up having an awesome time; so much so that we’re already planning a trip back – soon!
All four courses were amazing – especially dessert – and the ambience was ultra romantic. The walls in each booth were so high it felt like we were the only ones there, and the dim lights and candles truly set a mood. The best part: It didn’t break the bank! We even had a couple cocktails and still found the bill to be reasonable.
Is there a fondue joint near you? (Check The Melting Pot’s listings, they’re all over the country!) If so, you must try it. We’re officially fondue junkies. Oh, and if you do go to The Melting Pot, I highly recommend ordering the Cajun style entrée. The Man did and I didn’t and I think I ate almost all of his food. (Wife’s right, of course!)
