If you know me, you know that I love me some cheese and chocolate (and if you didn't know this, you didn't see my Facebook Live from August).
For years now, I've been a fan of The Melting Pot in King of Prussia but I'd only ever ordered the cheese and chocolate... I'd never actually had dinner there! That changed.
Over the weekend, Dan and I visited The Melting Pot to sample their King of Prussia Restaurant Week menu a little early.
White Truffle Cheddar Cheese Fondue
A savory blend of white truffle oil, our signature cheddar blend, cream cheese, fresh chopped garlic, and white wine.
I died and went to heaven. You can taste the decadent truffle oil in the cheese, and it's just enough to make you swoon. To dip: vegetables, apples/grapes, bread + pretzel bread (personal fave) and tortilla chips.
Fresh spring mix with sliced Roma tomatoes, Feta Cheese, cucumbers, artichoke hearts and Parmesan pine nuts tossed in an Artichoke Vinaigrette dressing.
Dan and I both agreed that this might have been the best salad we've ever had... no joke. The artichoke vinaigrette offered a little bit of a kick (Not too much, trust me. I don't do spicy and I was fine with this!) and combined with the cheese and pine nuts, it was bursting with flavor.
You may choose one of the following:
The Wayne - Jalapeño Filet Mignon, Pacific White Shrimp, All Natural Chicken Breast and Chicken-n-Cabbage Potstickers **This is what I got, except I subbed regular filet for the shrimp since I don't do seafood.
The King of Prussia - Cold Water Lobster Tail, Filet Mignon, and Sriracha Lime Shrimp **This is what Dan got.
The Audubon - Herb Coated Chicken Breast, Pacific White Shrimp, and Sesame Wasabi Coated Ahi Tuna
This was the portion of the evening that I wasn't as familiar with, but it was 100% my favorite. Our server (he was AMAZING by the way) recommended a broth/sauce that he simmered for us. We then were provided our chosen plates, raw. Our server explained that we each had a pair of tongs in different colors so as not to confuse one another's meal. We then had the opportunity to cook our meat to the desired temperature - I eat everything well and it only took about 3-4 minutes each.
Sure, it took longer to get through dinner, but it allowed dinner to be an experience and allowed Dan and I an opportunity to chat. I imagine it'd have been just as perfect with a group of girlfriends because we wouldn't have felt rushed!
When they initially bring it out, the plates look like you're going to be hungry afterwards but the portions are served perfectly. Eating slower allows you to digest properly and not overeat. I actually couldn't finish all of mine!!
Drinks + Dessert
Flaming Turtle Chocolate - SO. GOOD. Served with graham cracker coated marshmallows, fruit, brownies, etc. to dip. We were so full already, but couldn't resist getting dessert. When at The Melting Pot, right?
I tried the Coconut Mojito (er... I tried two). It was muddled really well and didn't seem like overkill the way some tropical drinks tend to. Not too sweet and I couldn't get enough of the coconut rim on the glass.
Dan tried the Jack Berry Smash. He loved it and highly recommends it to any 'fellas who like a good whiskey-based drink.
