Check it out!
The night Adam proposed we went to the Melting Pot in Houston Texas for dinner. It was the first time we had both been there. We got a four course meal and it was fantastic! It's a very nice and quite expensive restaurant so when we saw a Groupon for the Melting Pot in Legacy Village we just knew we had to get one. The Groupon gave us a three course meal (cheese fondue, salad and entree). When we called for the reservation they asked what we were celebrating, and I thought what the heck might as well tell them its our Engagement Anniversary!
Cheddar Cheese fondue. It was delicious, and I just love how the waiters come around and make it for you on your table. There were veggies, bread and apples to dip in the cheese.
I got the Caesar salad and Adam got the house salad. They were both good, but not too special.
Instead of each of us deciding on an entree the waitress brought out a plate with all the different types of entrees. There was chicken, filet mignon, duck, shrimp, salmon and a few other different things. They also provided some vegetables, potatoes and mushrooms. We had a great time cooking our food in the oil. I was particularly good at losing my food, and we had to do a search and rescue to get it out. I had never had duck before, and I can tell you I thought it was strange. I had also never had salmon before, and being anti-seafood but brave I tried it, but didn't really like it. Overall, the entree plate of random food was very tasty!
Who goes to The Melting Pot and doesn't get dessert? Not us! We got the Cookies and Cream Marshmallow Dream fondue. It was definitely dream like. It was delicious, there were a bunch of different tastes to it and it was definitely chocolate gooey perfection. Some of the dippers were cheesecake, brownies, pound cake, bananas and strawberries! One unfortunate thing happened during this course.. I dripped some fondue down my dress!! Oh well, it was totally worth it!
