[Ann Arbor] The Melting Pot
The Melting Pot | www.meltingpot.com/annarbor-mi/
– 3-course prix fixe fondue experience
– Dessert fondue only experience
Verdict: Too much work, I don’t want to pay to cook my own food.
Will return: No, not for dinner.
I personally think Melting Pot is overpriced considering how cheap the ingredients are (let’s think about what you are paying for: bread, cheese, frying batter, raw meat, OIL). On top of that, you are “cooking” it yourself. Some people would argue it’s a fun experience. Let’s be real, the reason why I go out to eat is to avoid subjecting myself to the wrath of my own cooking.
1st Course: Creamy tomato cheese fondue with bread, veggies, and apples.
2nd Course: Chicken, teriyaki sirloin, peppered duck, and spinach & artichoke ravioli. I am just going to call this oil fondue because you are basically dipping your meats in different flavored batter and deep frying them.
If I have to cook my own food, we have a problem. Cheese and chocolate dippers–I can deal–but this is literally converting raw meat into an edible entity. Also, this was really tedious because meat takes the longest to cook.
Verdict: Chocolate galore to satisfy
Will return: Yes, only for dessert.
I am convinced the s’mores fondue is the best thing
