Entrée

The main entrée fondue allows a choice of cooking style, either in oil or bouillion. Choices of chicken, beef, shrimp and fish are available, along with an assortment of vegetables such as broccoli and potatoes. Some entrée fondues may include special items such as ravioli or sausage. All items arrive uncooked and must be cooked in the oil or bouillion. A vegetarian entrée is also available.


A variety of dipping sauces are provided with each meal, along with two tempura batters if you choose the oil cooking style. Dipping sauces range from a mild curry sauce to a robust gorgonzola port sauce to a sweet ginger plum sauce. A unique Green Goddess sauce, comprised of herbs and cream cheese, is perfect for adding to the mushrooms. The mushroom is filled with the green goddess sauce and then dipped in tempura batter before cooking in oil. After cooking, the cheese will ooze out of the mushroom when the batter covering is cut into.
