Had an interesting dining experience with our friends E&M at Le Fondue in Saratoga. It was our first time there and it was quite a treat.
For cheese we did Kirschwasser(Swiss, wine, and brandy). We dipped fruit, veggies and bread and it was quite nice. The brandy really gave it an interesting flavor.
For our main course we did the Le Fondue combination. We shared with E&M their Fondue Feast. We were able to sample buffalo, calamari, wild boar, elk, chicken, steak and various condiments all cooked in sake.
And then for dessert, bittersweet chocolate with a nice big plate of marshmallows, snickers, strawberries, banana, pound cake, grapes and probably some other things I can't remember now.
Saratoga Village is quite the touristy part of town but it's definitely a nice visit. With its variety of restaurants, boutiques, wine bars, cafes, and antique shops you can probably spend a nice afternoon strolling down the street. Not to far away is also the Japanese Gardens and various South Bay hiking trails.
