We’ll start with a little wrap up of last weekend! On Friday, Bill and I celebrated our 1 year anniversary by going out to dinner. We decided on a nicer restaurant called The Melting Pot. We have never done a “nice dinner” place so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity. The Melting Pot is a fondue type restaurant where you have multiple different options to choose from. We decided to go with the four course option. For this you chose a cheese, a salad, a meat option and then a chocolate. For the cheese we went with the Fiesta option which was made with cheese, beer, salsa and jalepenos. It was a medium spice cheese and it came with a bunch of different dipping options.

For our salads, I got a normal house salad and Bill got a caesar salad. We thought they were both pretty good. Then came the meat coarse. I went with the option called the Pacific Rim and Bill went with the Steak Lovers option. Essentially they bring out your options uncooked with a cooking liquid of your choice. We went with the Mojo option which is described as a Caribbean-inspired bouillon bursting with flavors of garlic and citrus.
For my meat (the bottom plate in the picture above) I got honey orange duck breast, chicken and vegetable pot stickers, shrimp and teriyaki sirloin. All of them were really good but my favorite was the duck. Bill got a bunch of different steaks and he said his favorite was the filet mingnon. I didn’t try it but he said it melted in your mouth. You can also see some little containers by our plates full of sauce. They give you these that compliment your different types of meat. Honestly this place was really good. Not an every day type of dinner but definitely a special occasion place.
