Recently I had the opportunity to dine at the Melting Pot in Brea with three fabulous foodies in Orange County which included my husband, Tom Holmberg from Tom’s Foodie Blog, Mike Weber from Eating My Way Thru OC and Sukhraj Beasla from Eat Suki Eat, as well as Mike’s fabulous girlfriend, Katie Doyle. We truly had a fine dining experience together and had an opportunity to sample two fresh cheese fondues, four salads, a variety of meats we cooked ourselves in pots of oil with skewer sticks, and two different types of chocolate fondue with dippers, such as strawberries, pound cake, rice krispy treats, and mini slices of cheesecake.
The staff at the Melting Pot Brea location was very friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed the service and our meal. The purpose of this post is to share some of the fabulous new offerings at the Melting Pot. There are over 100 locations for Melting Pot across the United States and even a location in Canada in Edmonton and a location coming to Interlomas in Mexico soon. The exciting expansion of Melting Pot is something to be celebrated as this food is truly delish!!
I wanted to share some deals that are offered at the Melting Pot Brea & Irvine locations. Deals vary for the individual Melting Pot franchises, but they all have something fabulous to offer, so if in doubt as to whether or not your Melting Pot has these deals in particular, please feel free to check out the website Melting Pot or call the specific location.

This is Dani’s personal fave being the wine lover I am…Tuesdays only you can enjoy half price wine and beer flights…A suggestion I personally made to the Melting Pot Brea was that they should create a new tasting flight for their new variety of skinny sipping cocktails promoted by the Voli Light Vodka. This new brand of vodka is owned and designed by pop singers Fergie & Pitbull. These new fabulous skinny cocktails can be seen below. Visit your local Melting Pot today for fabulous fondues, friendly staff and fun times!

I had no idea that fondue has made a comeback. I remember fonduing many years ago… won’t say how many!
Mary thanks for the comment:-) Oh yes…fondue is a blast! Check out Melting Pot if you get a chance:-)
how did you guys feel after the fondue? I usually feel a bit low… so I opt for the home-made with coconut oil and cacao butter, or dairy free options
It is definitely tasty Nick, but I feel you! Fondue is VERY filling. We were supposed to go out dancing after this meal..Needless to say, we did not make it.. 🙂
Definitely did not make it to go dancing..after. Fondue is very filling!
Never been….. 😦 Looks great though.
Do you have fondue out there too? It is a fun experience! Check it out:) Thanks for the comment!
