When I first tried this restaurant, I really didn’t know what to expect.  I listened intently to the server so I would know how this is supposed to work.  And, oh my goodness, the cheesy fondue he stirred right before my eyes was to die for.  I dipped just about everything into it and had a blast.  The same thing happened for dessert with the chocolate fondue.  I went to town dipping all sorts of things into that pot of chocolate goodness.  I was in heaven.

But who knew I’d be forking over money to a restaurant for the honor of cooking my own food at my table?  So, basically, I pay the restaurant, they bring me raw meat on a tray with skewers, and I cook it myself to the desired temperature then eat it.  Wow.  Now that’s different.  I’m so used to paying restaurants to cook for me that I didn’t realize I’d been doing it wrong all along all these years.  I mean, the stove is actually inside your table and you cook right on top of it for crying out loud.  It was pretty funny when I thought about it.  Definitely something different for me to try.

So, if you have nothing else to do today, take a trip to The Melting Pot and tell them you can’t wait to give them your hard-earned money for a tray of raw meat to cook for yourself.

I’d definitely go again.  It’d be a fun date night with someone.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Ask how much they charge to bring your own pots and pans from home to use.  Might as well since you’re cooking your own food anyway.
