Tonight, Beck and I celebrated the seventh anniversary of our wedding by taking in a decadent meal at The Melting Pot.
For years, I’ve heard wonderful things about this place. It’s a restaurant whose whole menu is based around fondue. For example, our meal tonight started with garlic cheddar cheese fondue, with bread, apples, cauliflower, carrots and broccoli to drown. The next course was a salad, simple, yet big enough to be good on its own. The main course was a wine-based oil into which we plunged salmon, filet, lobster, shrimp, spinach ravioli, pot stickers and a variety of vegetables. And for dessert? A glass of 20-year old tawny port, and a fondue called Yin and Yang. It is a fondue pot with dark and white chocolate swirled together, along with strawberries, pineapples, bananas (coated and uncoated), angel food cake and cheesecake to dunk or drizzle.
This is probably the most decadent meal I’ve ever had. The richness of the ingredients, the duration (we were there almost three hours), the process of the cooking….. It all adds up to a tremendous event, and one well worth the cost.
The only downside is that I think Beck is gonna make me take her there often, just so she can get dessert! 🙂
