verdict: tasty, try it!
i gathered my friends here for an early dinner one day because i wanted to try fondue. i knew monsieur marcel served fondue at less wallet offending prices (as oppose to the melting pot in pasadena) so we gave it a shot. we ordered two pots with one titled the "the real thing," get the heck out. real thing? we also ordered a side of sliced meats and apples for dipping. the first few bites were ok, but "the real thing" had a REALLY STRONG wine taste to it. don't get me wrong, i love my wines, but the wine in the fondue tasted bitter. the other fondue pot tasted better, but again, after eating all that cheese and seeing it bubbling and separating from the other oils in the pot, it became pretty unappetizing. needless to say, i am fondued out!
my other friends ordered their burger, salad, and calamari. they enjoyed their meals and everything else looked delightful. m. marcel will be a repeat for me. it seems too delicious not to...but the next time, no more fondue. once was enough.
