The Melting Pot

The Melting Pot on Urbanspoon

 Do you fondue?

The Melting Pot is one of our favorites. We're not here very often, but whenever we go we really enjoy the experience.

 If I feel especially self-indulgent I'll start my meal with the yin-yang martini -- vodka, white chocolate liqueur, ice cream, chocolate shavings. Like a grown up milkshake, only smoother.

You don't have to order the whole meal, you can just order a cheese fondue or a chocolate fondue. But we go for the whole experience. We started with a Swiss cheese fondue. It's served with simple dippers -- raw veggies, bread, granny smith apples. Next was salad -- the house salad is a tossed salad, the house dressing tangy, like Catalina french, only not as heavy.

For the main course we had a combination of steak, shrimp, chicken and lobster tail. We chose to cook it in broth -- several options are offered. The waiter will bring the broth to your table and you will cook it yourself. Entrees are served with potatoes and vegetables, which are also cooked at the table. A variety of dipping sauces are served as well. Instead of a typical chocolate fondue we chose one based on white chocolate and bananas foster, which the waiter flambeed at our table. Dippers include marshmallows, pound cake, strawberries and rice Krispy treats.

As usual I brought half of my meal home . . .
