Weekend Culinary Trips Return With Two Virtual Destinations

Our friends and neighbors at the Hyatt Regency Petrovsky Park have brought back the gastronomic stay-at-home travel experiences that kept many of us happy and well-fed during the spring lockdown. Now they’ve doubled their culinary geography.

Instead of one, now there are two sets of delicious food available for order every weekend. The new offerings, like the previous weekend delivery menus, are available every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Orders are part of the Hyatt loyalty program so you can save up enough points for a custom-made cake from our pastry chef or a premium get-away at our hotels.

This Halloween weekend, Oct. 30 through Nov. 1, you can choose your virtual gastronomic destination: Japan or Georgia.

The Japanese set begins with hiyayakko tofu (chilled tofu with ginger, shallots and bonito flakes); nikuman (steamed buns filled with duck, mushroom, cabbage and scallion); then offers ramen soup (noodle soup with caramelized pork belly, seasoned egg, ramen noodles, spring onion and pickled vegetables); a tempura selection (prawns, chicken, calamari, vegetables with tentsuyu sauce); okonomiyaki (savory pancake with a variety of ingredients); and yakitori (traditional skewered chicken grilled over a charcoal fire, served with rice cake). Finish your meal with a delicious dessert called dorayaki: pancakes filled with fruit.

The Georgian set allows you to enjoy a real Caucasian feast: kharcho soup (traditional spicy soup with rice, tender beef, fried tomatoes and fragrant Georgian spices); lobio (red kidney beans with onions, fragrant spices and adjika); adsabsandal (cooked vegetables with Georgian herbs); khinkali (dumplings filled with pork and beef); a cheese board of homemade suluguni, Caucasian cheese, smoked chechil with walnuts, honey and cilantro; dolma (grape leaves stuffed with rice and herbs served with yogurt sauce); cheburek (mutton pie with chopped lamb and adjika sauce); khachapuri narta (pie stuffed with suluguni cheese); and chicken tabaka (chicken fried with herbs and garlic oil).

For dessert, you can taste the real Georgian ghapama: pumpkin stuffed with rice, dry fruits and honey.

The price for each set is 3,900 rubles and each menu will be more than enough for two or more people -- the portions are really generous. Each set includes special complimentary drinks.

In these difficult times, the Hyatt Regency Moscow Petrovsky Park has joined a program to help children through the Diema’s Dream Fund. From each order the hotel will transfer 200 rubles to orphanages and boarding schools.

As usual, make sure that you place your order for the weekend feast in 24 hours in advance by phone +7 (495) 479 12 34 or via e-mail at MOSRM-Room.Service@hyatt.com
