Some Flavours of Transcaucasia, Russia and the West

Darya N. from Hong Kong


About the kitchen

I am half English and half Russian, and come from a big international family. We are all food appreciators and home chefs, scattered around the world....but when we sit down together at a big dining table, we enjoy sharing stories and food.
On my table you can find food my family and I would have at our dinner table - traditional Russian, Georgian or Caucasian, a bit of Mediterraninan, British, Italian - with slight twists. Simple family dinner.
Russian food is largely influenced by that of it's neighbouring countries, which is why a lot of Russians absolutely love Georgian food. Both cuisines include a lot of vegetables, dairy, bread and meat. Pies and other bread are usually made from sourdough, and have a wonderful tangy flavour that complements sweet and savoury fillings well. Many Georgian dishes incorporate walnuts, while Russian dishes are accompanied by a serving of Smetana - sour cream.

With the exception of dessert, most of the dishes are served at the same time. Some - the breads, spreads, salads and starters- to share, and are eaten with everything else throughout the course of the meal. Followed by dumplings, a soup or a stew, and the other components.

Let me know if you have any dietary restrictions or special requests - I can tailor the menu for you!
P.S. Please feel free to bring some containers/tupperware to take any of the delicious leftovers back home to enjoy!

  1. Bio

    I was born in the UK, have lived in St.Petersburg, Russia for a significant part of my life, before moving to Berlin and later Amsterdam. A little over a year ago I found myself in HK, teaching English and getting to know the ways of the city. I can be found: running up Mount Parker, experimenting with food, barbequing with my best friend and flatmate, Deveney; enjoying a book, concert, thinking about Russian politics; occasionally playing the violin or painting; and, of course, making friends over good food and wine.

Dasha's Georgian menu was incredible. My wife and I love Georgian food and have been hard up for good options in Hong Kong. But over the several courses of various Georgian favorites, we enjoyed an abundance of great food, good conversation, and a relaxing-at-home vibe. She let us help prep the khinkali, something we'd wanted to learn how to do, and sent us home with lots of leftovers. The location was easy to find and the apartment was scrupulously clean and orderly. Dasha was a great hostess, and stayed in close and easy communication. Highly recommend!
