PEORIA, Ill. -- Mac and Ashley headed out to find some adventurous cuisine. They ended up at Mango in Peoria for fondue.

Fondue was originally about dipping food in melted cheese on a small burner.

Now, it's food dipped in cheese, hot oil, or even chocolate.

The meal started with melted cheese and variety of breads and fruit to be dipped.

That's a fon-don't. You're not supposed to eat off the skewer. You use a fork and remove it from the skewer. That's one of the rules.

The second course was the veggies, meat and seafood. It was dropped into a pot of very hot oil and it cooked quickly. There were some dipping sauces to add more flavor.

For dessert the pair had flaming chocolate fondue.

Mango also has a regular restaurant menu, so the non fon-doers can have something else, if they choose.

The meal came to $67.62 plus tip for their three course meal.

Mango is located at 1818 W. War Memorial Drive. Open evenings for dinner all week.
