Enjoy A Night of Latin Dinner, Dancing & Cocktails this November at the Hyatt Trinidad (recap)
I recently enjoyed the soft launch of this November’s series of Latin Dinner, Dancing & Cocktails at the Hyatt Regency Trinidad.
Being held each Saturday in November (yes there are 3 left!), this innovative offering is being presented in partnership with the Caribbean & Latin Dance Association of T&T and allows guests to enjoy entry-level dance lessons, along with a fixed price cocktail and/or 3-course dinner menu. For full details of the dances offered, as well as prices, please visit my prior post “November is Latin Dancing, Cocktails & Dinner at the Hyatt Trinidad!” or keep reading (I’ll repeat the link at the end).
Upon arriving I was presented with the extremely delicious Mango Tango cocktail. I highly recommend it! After mingling for a bit, it was time to take to our tables.
The menu offers you a wide array of options for each course. The majority of the dishes come included with the price, however there are also a few others that you can request at an additional cost. I chose to sample the fixed price items, as I felt that is what most of you may choose if you attend. I was also in a bit of a vegetarian mood that night as well. Advance apologies to the meat mouths out there 🙂
Green Peas | Black Beans | Garbanzo | Arugula | Feta Cheese Lemon Vinaigrette
Cherry Tomatoes | Broccoli | Roasted Garlic Tomato Sauce
Chef’s Trio of Sweetness
There’s no description of this item on the menu, so I am not sure if it stays the same throughout the month, or will be rotated at the chef’s discretion. However on the night that I dined, the trio comprised of a cheesecake, chocolate cake, and a macaron.
OK, I know I said I stuck to the fixed-price items. However I had to just spy and snap on these additional dessert offerings which some at my table also got!
Flavors in White (add-on)
Light Hazelnut Milk Pudding | Coffee Chantilly | Vanilla Ice Cream
Chocolate Banana Pudding (add-on)
Pineapple Compote | Soursop Ice Cream
I highly recommend this offering if you are looking for something different to do on a Saturday night. The price is great for all that is included, the atmosphere and ambience of the Waterfront can’t be beat and that it all helps to support the non-profit programs assisted by the Caribbean & Latin Dance Association of T&T (cultural training, community & youth productivity/social skills, entrepreneurial & job skills) is the icing on the cake!
