After the main course is the BEST part. Dessert! You can choose your chocolate/dessert dip of choice. I used to go for the YingYang chocolate (white and black styled in the pot to look like it’s namesake) and the Cookies and Cream, but since those are staples of the menu, Hubs and I chose something different and seasonally featured! The Bananas Foster dip! Based with a white chocolate, spiced rum, vanilla extract and brown sugar, the firey sparks are created with cinnamon! Watch the video below to see the “fireworks!”
Disclaimer: I was treated to a 4 course meal at The Melting Pot in downtown Atlanta in exchange for posting. I am free to comment on the establishment in any fashion. All opinions are my own.
It was my 31st birthday last weekend, and never letting a good party pass me by, Hubs and I took in a baby-free fancy dinner downtown at The Melting Pot. It had been several years since we last visited, and the menu was completely different; many more options, ways to customize the meal, and handcrafted cocktails to sip!
In the past, the 3 course meal was sold at a single price per person. Now, they have a “choose your own adventure” type option where you can select an appetizer dip, a salad, an entree and when you’re finished, select a chocolate/dessert dip (which is by far my favorite part!!). The four course option is still (in my opinion) the best experience and the most cost effective. Hubs and I started with the goat cheese and white wine appetizer dip, whereupon I nearly wiped the bowl clean with my fruits and breads! Hubs, being a carnivore, chose the classic platter for dinner with every kind of meat. I’m more of a land & sea girl, choosing to cook my steak rare, pacific shrimp, and seasoned chicken. (There are even 3+ fondue cooking methods to choose from to further customize your meal!)
If you head to The Melting Pot anytime soon, be sure to try the White Peach Martini – it’s very light and well mixed, pairing with many of the dishes perfectly. Or, if you’re not a liquor person, the local beers offered are delicious!
We took our time “cooking” our meal, each with color coded skewers, making sure to follow our waitress’ advice on simmer times and using some of the 9 different accent sauces (my advice? Go with the Melting Pot’s Green Goddess sauce on everything. It’s amazing…)
There was even a surprise for me right as the waitress finished dazzling us with the fireworks: a birthday plate of fruit to dip into the chocolate! I already can’t wait to visit again for my next celebration. (Who am I kidding… who’s up for a girls night of cheese dip and chocolate just because?!)
