Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts is bringing the tastes and flavors of the US west coast to Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi, with an exclusive new California-inspired menu. Celebrating the fusion of sunshine and seasonal fare, the brand’s global food and beverage campaign, California dreamin’, will be available for lunch and dinner at Mangosteen Restaurant throughout the month of March.

“Hollywood, Venice Beach, and Napa Valley might spring to mind when you think of America’s hip and effortlessly glamorous Golden State,” said Nicolas Josi, General Manager of Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi. “With our new California dreamin’ menu throughout the month of March, guests will be thinking about Mangosteen Restaurant when it comes to fresh, organic cuisine, exciting flavors, and happy times spent with family and friends.”

The California dreamin’ campaign pays tribute to chefs who were instrumental in turning the world’s palates toward fresh, locally-grown produce and mixing cultural influences from Latin America, Asia, and Europe. Californian cuisine first won favor back in the early ‘70s, when pioneering chef Alice Waters opened her restaurant Chez Panisse. It quickly became known for its use of organic and locally-grown ingredients and ever since entrepreneurial Californian chefs have never shied away from mixing unexpected combinations of ingredients and food styles, while making the most of the abundant sun-kissed produce for which the state is known.

The California dreamin’ a la carte menu features seven dishes of classic Californian fusion cuisine. Seafood, fruit, vegetables, and fresh herbs figure prominently in a medley of bold flavors, surprising combinations, and unpretentious style. Guests can choose their favorite dishes from delicious selections such as crab cakes prepared from freshly-caught crab in the Santa Barbara region; flowered tuna; beef carpaccio formaggi cooked from cattle in Santa Rita Hills; Label Rouge salmon; lemon Guinea fowl; oven-roasted rack of lamb; and vegan lemon and avocado cheesecake.

Founded in Switzerland in 1973 but with a heritage in food and beverage excellence stretching back to the 1940s, Mövenpick is a brand known for its culinary innovation and unique moments in sharing food. Mövenpick Hotel Hanoi offers delicious programs such as Chocolate Hour every day in the main lobby. The hotel also sells Mövenpick branded food and beverage products that share the delights of Swiss cuisine, such as coffee, chocolate, yoghurt, smoked salmon, and preserves. The hotel brand holds a growing portfolio of more than 80 hotels in 24 countries and territories around the globe.
