Experience the fun of fondue
With the fondue parties of the 80s a distant memory, CJs French & Fondue Restaurant is bringing back the fun of fondue to the current generation. CJs is a restaurant of everything stereotypically French. Although not quite a French Bistro, the restaurant has a homely feel inspired by the Chateaus of the French Alps. Many of the classically French dishes such as Steak et Frites à la Parisienne, a dish of steak, fries and garlic and parsley butter and the retro 80s dessert crepes Suzette are on the menu. However their specialty is their fondue that the majority of the patrons order.

The special that the restaurant offers is their entree-main deal consisting of a Swiss style cheese fondue entree and a French style hot oil fondue main. Both fondues are brought out individually in a single pot heated by an oil burner underneath. The burner is hot enough to keep the cheese and the hot oil bubbling. It makes the Emmenthal & Gruyere cheese with wine and a dash of nutmeg gooey enough to coat the pieces of bread like a rich sauce. It is also hot enough for the oil to brown the pieces of meat offered for the main that can be either beef or chicken or a combination of both.

The entree can be supplemented with additional mushrooms and vegetables and the main course comes with additional chips and salads as sides and fresh prawns for an additional added cost. To finish off the fondue set, a dessert of chocolate fondue can also be ordered with fresh fruit, marshmallows and biscuits.

Given the popularity of the cook-your-own Korean BBQ and the Japanese and Chinese steamboats there is no wonder that fondue is also a popular option for dinner.

If only they included a seafood fondue (you cook the food in a seafood broth). Ah, the memories.
