The Melting Pot
Saturday April 30, 2011
Well I’m up all sky high off watching Doctor Who. lolol It’s getting late but I wanted to post a few snaps from Friday night at The Melting Pot. It’s basically a fully fondue restaurant. It’s like right by my house but in the 5+ years I’ve lived here I never went. :deco13: I only toyed with the idea and laughed it off as just a poor leftover relic of the 60’s. lolol AH BUT IT WAS PRETTY FUN!
The lighting is really low. :deco13: The place is basically a date night haven. So the pictures aren’t so great. :deco13: It’s a really nice setup though. Romantic lighting, cool layout & table set ups. A bit like a more spacious Cheesecake Factory.
This is one of the few places I actually still had room for dessert! Basically you choose a four course meal. A salad, cheese fondue, entree, then dessert. But neither of us are big cheese fans so we skipped that. :P
OK so this is what I got…
Spinach Mushroom Salad
Fresh spinach, baby Portobello mushrooms, red onion, chopped bacon and Roma tomatoes with a warm Burgundy Shallot Vinaigrette.
Pacific Rim Entree
Teriyaki-marinated sirloin, white shrimp, citrus-marinated pork tenderloin, breast of duck, breast of chicken and potstickers
Entrée Cooking Styles
For cooking your entrée
Bourguignonne (this is what you cook it in)
European-style fondue in cholesterol-free canola oil / 0g trans-fat oil
Cookies ‘n Cream Marshmallow Dream
Dark chocolate topped with marshmallow cream, flambéed, swirled together and garnished with crushed Oreo® cookies
Mike got the cajun entree which I liked a lot more…
The French Quarter
Filet mignon, breast of chicken and shrimp all seasoned with Cajun spices and served with Andouille sausage
The salad was SO FUCKIN GOOD! :deco11: That’s not usually something I often think and I LOVE salad. Mike said his was the best he had ever had too.
The entrees were good. Cooking it is a bit cumbersome. It takes a while to finish eating really. :hungry: We were there a long time but it was a nice time. :deco2: It’s great because we weren’t in any hurry and if you’re looking for a long dining experience this is perfect! There are different batters you can dip the meats and veggies into, etc. Sauces too.
However, we both agreed we aren’t used to eating such oily foods anymore. :;_;: It tasted fine but just… well it is all cooked in frying oil and that’s just not something I eat on a regular basis. :drops:
Cut to dessert. FAN-FUCKIN-TASTIC! :deco10: :deco10: :deco10:
These are the dippers you get…
Fresh strawberries, bananas, cheesecake, Rice Krispies Treats®, marshmallows, pound cake and brownies for you to dip into any of our decadent chocolate-fondue creations
Aside from the marshmallow dippers, these were so GOOD and decadent with the dark chocolate, marshmallow melt and cookie crumb fondue pot, hahaha. Apparently you can get endless dippers! :!?: Until you run out of fondue of course. There’s a small & large order though which is great. :up:
Probably will go back. :)
Wonder if it’s too doucey to just order salad and the “large” dessert????? :?: ::9: LOOOOOOOOOOL :deco3:
