DSC02896What is Celiac Disease?
Celiac disease is an autoimmune disorder that can occur in genetically predisposed people where the ingestion of gluten (a protein found in wheat, rye, or barley) leads to damage in the small intestine.  It is estimated to affect 1 in 100 people worldwide.

The Melting Pot Orlando offers a variety of options ranging from drinks, entrees, and dessert that does not contain gluten.

The Menu and environment can seem a little intimidating for those who have never been but with the patience of the staff I was able to get a hang of the dining experience.

Step. 1 (optional) Pick a gluten free drink!

I had a Berry Mojito while my guest has the Sunrise Sangria. 

Step 2. Choose your Cheese

We had to agree on 1 cheese choice and we went with the “Fresh! Spinach Artichoke”
Which includes Fontina and Butterkäse cheeses, fresh spinach, artichoke hearts and garlic.

The ingredients are mixed into vegetable broth.

DSC02878We then enjoy it with some gluten free bread, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and granny smith apples that’s surprisingly quite delicious.

Step. 3 Choose your meat options
I went with the Surf & Turf while my guest went with the Classic which offers a variety of proteins (shrimp, chicken, pork, and beef).

The meat comes raw so that you can enjoy the cooking at the table experience.DSC02888We also had to decide on a broth for the cooking style and we agreed on the “Mojo” a Caribbean-seasoned bouillon with a distinctive fresh-garlic flavor and a citrus flair.

Step 4. Choose your Chocolate Fondue

Again, we had to agree on one option and that is “The Flaming Turtle” it’s an irresistible combination of milk chocolate, caramel and candied pecans flambéed tableside.

DSC02903We had a selection of sweets to go with the chocolate dipping including: Strawberries, gluten free brownies, Marshmallows, bananas etc..

My guest and I definitely enjoyed our experience at the Melting Pot! It’s such a fun and interactive way to dine (especially on dates). I would say to be patient with your server since each table requires so much attention and steps to ensure the safety and the enjoyment of the guests.
