Do you fondue?

So... I work at a pretty stellar startup, bloomspot. If you've never heard of it, you can read about us here, here and here. And as if working at an awesome start-up isn't cool enough, I work with really awesome people. Tonight, my team and I went went for dinner and drinks at Cowboy Fondue in SoMa..... but I didn't bring my camera, so I don't have any photos of said fantastic dinner/drinks :( Check out the entire cheesy menu here.

We tried:

{The Traditional} Swiss Gruyere, Ementhaller, White Wine, Roasted Garlic, Fresh Ground Nutmeg
{The Quick Draw} Manchego, White Wine, Roasted Red Puree, Roasted Garlic
...and one with a goat cheese (that one was my fave).

Each fondue pot can serve about 2-3 people and is served with bread, crostinis, grapes, apple slices, olives, pickles, broccoli and fingerling potatoes. We all shared a liter (yes, an entire liter!) of the house sauvignon blanc- which is definitely worth a try!

For dessert, we indulged in dark chocolate fondue pot with walnuts and a white chocolate with strawberry puree. SO good! The dessert fondue was brought out with strawberries, pineapples, kiwi, bananas, marshmallows and this magical chocolate bread!

Super fun place to come with a bunch of people. Simply put- a must try if you're ever in SoMa- drop in and have some fondue at Cowboy Fondue!

*Tip: Skip making reservations on OpenTable.com and instead call the restaurant directly- they will work to fit you in at whatever time!

I think I want to try my own version of this fondue thing- maybe at a dinner party soon?!


  1. I wanna come to that dinner party!!

  2. I LOVE fondue! I went to a fondue dinner party last week and it was delicious! I also have my own fondue set and sometimes i'll melt chocolate and buy some strawberries and banana's and have my own little party :)
