Tonight we went out to eat with our friends, the Gillard, for a very unique dining experience. The Tacoma resaurant is called 'the Melting Pot' and the entire meal is cooked at the table. The first course is a cheese fondue with bread and veggies. The second course is a conventional salad choice. The main course is a variety of raw meat and veggies which you cook at your table pot. We had two different beef cuts some chicken, salmon and shrimp. It's a little slow as you have to cook each piece for about two minutes. The final course is fruits and pastries dipped in chocolate fondue. As you can imagine the whole process takes a while. We spent over three hours. It was a unique experience and we always enjoy conversation with the Gillards.
