Fondue.. it changes lives.

So last night hubbz and I went out to dinner to The Melting Pot. It was suppose to be a birthday dinner for our 12 year old daughter, Alina, but she wasn't feeling good plus we purchased a living social voucher a few months ago. It was about to expire so we decided to go ourselves. Let me tell you.. it was FAB!

The ambiance was so nice. Our waitress was great. The food was awesome. The price- Eh. Let's just say that was our special treat. Let me break down what we had.

We had the Four-Course Classic which consists of:

First Course

Cheddar Cheese Fondue
Aged medium-sharp cheddar and Emmenthaler
Swiss cheeses melt beautifully with lager beer,
garlic and seasonings.

The server mixes all oft he ingredients right there at your table and voila! A luscious cheese fondue is born!

Second Course-

The Melting Pot House Salad
Crisp romaine and iceberg lettuce, aged
cheddar cheese, Roma tomatoes, seasoned
croutons and sliced egg with your choice of
Peppercorn Ranch Dressing or our sweet and tangy House Dressing (hubbz chose oil & vinegar)

Third Course- This is the main course. The meats come to you raw. You have up to 4 choices of "broths" that is put in a warming pot on your table. You add your meats in the flavored broth and actually cook them. We chose the Court Bouillon which is a vegetable broth hand-seasoned
with herbs and spices. Very happy with our selection.
Seasoned choice Angus sirloin, Memphis-style BBQ pork tenderloin, succulent white shrimp,
herb-crusted all-natural chicken breast and teriyaki-marinated sirloin.

They also give you I think 6 sauces for dipping, I fell in love with the "Green Goddess" sauce. I can't remember all of the ingredients but I think there was some cream cheese, sour cream, onion and I don't know what else. But anyway, it was delish. I asked for more lol

Fourth Course- This was all for me because hubbz isn't a sweets person. I PIGGED OUT!

Ying & Yang

This fondue satisfies dark and white
chocolate cravings in an artfully balanced fondue dessert.
Fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, Rice Krispies Treats, marshmallows,
pound cake and brownies.

The quality time was well worth it but next time, we will order take out and just park somewhere and enjoy our time lol

Here we are at the restaurant.... all together now- AAAWW! ;)
