The Melting Pot

The Melting Pot in Raleigh was quite an experience Saturday night. The cheese fondue was excellent and we loved dipping our bread, vegetables, and granny smith apples in it. Our salads were great. My husband and daughter had ceasar salads which they enjoyed and I had the house salad which had the best tangy dressing on it. My daughter and I didn't have an entree because we thought between the cheese fondue, the salad, and the chocolate dessert, that we would be too full-we were right! Plus it took all three of us to cook my husband's entree. He ordered the shrimp and steak and it came with a plate of vegetables that included red potatoes, broccoli, and mushrooms. There were two types of batter to dip things in and a whole host of sauces for everything. We were each given two of the fondue forks at the beginning of the meal so imagine trying to cook your dinner with just two forks? My husband looked at me like "this is going to take forever" but luckily we figured out that if all of us loaded up our forks that he would have enough food to eat while the rest of it cooked. It was funny as we would each load up the meat, shrimp, potatoes, mushrooms and as soon as they cooked, we would reload. It didn't take much to entertain us!! Then came the dessert. There was so many choices, but we opted for the plain milk chocolate. They brought two big plates of things to dip in the chocolate. There was marshmallows, pound cake, strawberries, bananas, brownies, rice krispie treats, and even a piece of cheesecake that you just drizzled the chocolate over instead of dipping it. It was a blast and a wonderful way to celebrate our daughter's birthday!
