Provided you're not lactose intolerant (or you are, but have your lactase at the ready), chances are that melted cheese is at the top of your winter favourite food list. If that's the case, the Crossroads Bar on level eight of the Swissôtel has something to fulfil your ooey gooey cheese dreams while the cold weather is here.

The alpine-inspired hotel on Market Street is hosting Swiss fondue for two (or more) every day from 12–9pm until the end of winter. The team at Swissôtel has developed a fondue based on traditional recipes featuring emmental, gruyere and comte, then melted together with white wine and garlic, then delivered to your table in a warm pot for $36 per person. Upon request (and for an extra charge), chefs will add other flavours like double-cream brie and black truffle to enhance the dip.

Now, cheese connoisseurs will know that the biggest factor to consider with fondue is what bite-sized sides you'll coat with the decadent cheese blend. You'll have your pick of the classics like baguette and vegetables, but Swissôtel is also serving up some next level dip-ins if you're willing to shell out some extra cash: meatballs, salami, kransky sausages, beer-battered chips, pan-fried mushrooms and more.

In 2020, adjusting to the times, Swissôtel is also doing a takeaway version — and two options are available. Go for the $70 package, and you'll receive a 400-gram blend of grated emmental, gruyere and comte cheese, a baguette, cornichons, pickled onions and Legacy Semillon sauvignon blanc, as well as instructions telling you how to put it all together. For $120, you receive all of the above, as well as a premium fondue pot set and a bottle of Giesen Estate riesling to drink.

Swissôtel's Swiss Fondue is available at the Crossroads Bar on the hotel's eighth level from 12–9pm daily.
