My lovely husband took me to The Melting Pot for our 2nd year anniversay celebration - thanks honey! I was so excited to have fondue! I hadn't had it in at least 10 years.
We started with the Traditional Swiss Cheese Fondue (Grùyere and Emmenthaler Swiss cheeses, white wine, a touch of garlic, nutmeg, fresh lemon, and Kirschwasser) - delicious and very filling!

Then we had the Fondue Bourguignonne (The European-style of cooking in cholesterol-free canola oil served with our signature sesame and tempura fondue batters) with Signature Selection (choice tenderloin, shrimp, teriyaki marinated choice sirloin, boneless breast of chicken and fresh fish fillet). We didn't really like the any of the batters. Actually, I don't know if the problem was the batters or if the temperature wasn't high enough. The teriyaki marinated meat was very good.
Next time time we want to try the Fondue Court Bouillon (a seasoned vegetable broth that is full of flavor while low in sodium, and cholesterol-free).

We were so full that we didn't have a chance to try the chocolate fondue this time. Maybe we'll go back next year, since they're a bit pricey. :)
