The Melting Pot Jakarta: Definelety A Yes For Cheese Fondue

The Melting Pot Plaza Senayan Jakarta: Definelety A Yes For Cheese Fondue

A friend of mine, nvcl told me about this place, by the time she mentioned cheese fondue, I don't need more words, it's definitely a yes! I'm in. The Melting Pot is an American originated restaurant, and now you can enjoy it here in Jakarta. Cheese fondue is the signature, each served with bread platter that consists of artisan bread, veggies, corn tortilla chips, and apple cubes.

First, it's Cheddar Cheese Fondue (IDR 108.000) aged medium sharp cheddar and Emmental Swiss cheese, lager beer, and garlic. Everyone's favorite, mild cheesy taste, best to be dipped with apple yes instead of bread. For cheese lovers or even adventurous foodies, go for Spinach Artichoke (IDR 118.000) consists of Fontina and Gouda cheese, spinach, artichoke hearts, and garlic. Tiny artichoke bits added an entice texture. As a person with great fondness of cheese, both are lovely though it was too oily to my liking, still lulled by rich and nutty Fontina and Gouda blend. 

Next, let's move into (again) things that makes me excited, salad. The Melting Pot House Salad (IDR 68.000) crisp Romaine and Iceberg lettuce, cheddar cheese, fresh tomato, crispy croutons, and sliced hard boiled egg with your choice of Peppercorn Ranch Dressing or sweet and tangy House Dressing. The house dressing was decent as (to me) though in general it's a winner during lunch, it was a little sweet to my palate, I'd rather go for salad with sour tangy vinaigrette, such as California (IDR 65.000) mixed baby greens, candied walnuts, Gorgonzola cheese with Raspberry vinaigrette. I believe it's not for everyone's tongue but surely a treat for me and you, if you're into tangy dressing and strong cheese flavor.

When it comes to salad, dressing is the substantial key for turning the bitter greens palatable and even more tasty combining different textures and flavors. One that won't disappoint me is classic Caesar Salad (IDR 58.000) romaine lettuce, parmesan,croutons, toasted pine nuts. 

Time for dessert! sweet fondue served with assorted mini cakes, banana and strawberries. Cookies 'N Cream Marshmallow Dream (IDR 118.000) - dark chocolate and marshmallow topped with bits of chocolate and splashed of rhum that is the base to create flambĂ©. Though usually I'll go for dark chocolate but an exception for The Original (IDR 98.000) - milk chocolate fondue swirled with peanut butter, sooo.. good! Just enough amount of sweetness combined with melt in mouth nutty-savory slightly salty peanut butter, you don't want to miss it!

The fact that in general people cannot refuse chocolate, even better because it's melted. This place offers more than enjoyable food but also delightful experience, where you can sit longer with family and friends sharing stories while dipping your choice of fondue. A pot of happiness.
