I don't know how we found this restaurant, how we got there, or how much we paid for the meal. I was just following the group for a change instead of leading the pack.
Fondue and raclette is most likely found at the same restaurant. Fondue means "melted" and is cheese in a bowl that bite-sized pieces of bread are dipped in. Raclette is sliced cheese that gets melted before your very eyes and is scraped over a cooked potato. Keep in mind that the fondue has alcohol in it, and the French waitress told Brina that the alcohol cooks out. I elected to do the raclette because I had a hard time imagining a full meal of bread covered in cheese, but it wasn't like there wasn't bread on the table we could pour the melted cheese over, too.
Although fondue and raclette are standard French cuisines, I didn't go for it too much. It was more fun to melt the cheese and scrape it onto the potato with the little spatula then anything else. I guess I'm just used to a baked potato with lots of other toppings. I definitely am glad I ate raclette for the experience, but I'm also able to accept that it wasn't anything off the charts. (Sorry, Brina.)
