Meet the unique position in the menu of the Selfie restaurant - vegetable meat burgers, which are almost impossible to distinguish from the usual!
Innovative burger is made from vegetable meat Beyond Meat, consisting of pea protein, water and oil, 100% vegan. By its consistency, smell, taste and color, it is almost impossible to distinguish from the usual, and the red color is achieved through beet juice.
A team of 40 scientists, chefs, molecular biologists and plant physiologists worked on the formula of plant meat in the innovation center of the Manhattan Beach Project in California. For more than seven years they have worked to make it as similar as possible to the present. The assembly method is similar to the process used to make pasta: the ingredients are mixed, the mixture is pressed, and then formed into the final product. The only ingredient of animal meat that was impossible to synthesize from plants was cholesterol, so it is not in the vegetable burger.
Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft Corp., Biz Stone, Twitter co-founder, Leonardo DiCaprio, McConald’s ex-CEO Don Thompson and many other rich people who care about the future of our planet invested in the development of vegetable meat. Then the protein giant Tyson Foods and Nestle Corporation followed them.
Restorateur Boris Zarkov and the White Rabbit Family holding share the ideas and values of responsible and environmentally friendly consumption and seek to draw the attention of society to the complex issues involved. The production of a vegetable burger consumes 99% less water, 93% less land, 46% less electricity, and greenhouse gas emissions when it is produced is exactly ten times less than if it were from ordinary meat.
Try the unique sinless Burger at Selfie: it is on the menu from April 19!

José Avillez has repeatedly been recognized as the “chef of the year”, has published three books on cooking, has released several seasons of a TV show and has a radio program in which he shares recipes.

He took the position of the chef for the first time in 2008 at the Portuguese restaurant Tavares and a year later he brought here the cherished star. Then José began producing his own brand of wine, and in 2012 he opened the restaurant Belcanto.
Belcanto is a restaurant with history: it was opened in the historical center of Lisbon, in the area of Chiado, in 1958, and quickly conquered the capital's elite.

Here came the awards: in the same year, the first Michelin star was received, in 2014 - the second, in 2015 Belcanto was included in the list of the 100 best restaurants in the world.

There are not only cauliflower with green curry, beets with almond milk and delicious buckwheat with porcini mushrooms, but much more. Fried avocados in Selfie are served with pumpkin gnocchi and spicy chimichurri sauce, and Jerusalem artichoke meatballs are seasoned with coconut sauce.

Responsible (ethical) consumption is a social phenomenon that appeared as a response to the growing concern of developed countries’ people about the environmental and social problems of the planet.
In Russia, ethical consumption is still in its infancy. Chefs promoting this global trend in our country are becoming the mouthpieces of social responsibility. The task of the chef who is on this path is to use organic products, minimize kitchen leftovers and be more attentive to their processing.
Anatoly Kazakov, chef of the restaurant Selfie, presents a new set of "Edible / Non-edible", created in accordance with all the canons of responsible consumption. For example, Anatoly cooks mushroom pate from mushroom peels, duck fat and chicken skin, that accumulate in the kitchen. In the vegetable appetizer he uses cabbage stalks, and he leaves only chitin shell from the shrimp. The cod's neck (triangle with a fin), which at best is used for broths, turns into an independent dish here: it turns out that it has a very special taste and texture.
This set is about ethical consumption for you, if you are attentive to your nutrition and want to transfer the planet to your children clean.

The hit of the “Group dishes” is the duck, roasted with apples, which the chef serves with white cherry sauce. The Rostov farm duck is enough at least for five persons. For a larger group there is a choice of lamb or wild sea bass baked whole. The Stavropol lamb shoulder is baked on coal and served with potato gratin. And the wild sea bass can be ordered in two variants: baked in a salt shell or in an envelope with sun-dried tomatoes and white wine.
In order to avoid the wait for large meals to be prepared, it’s better to order them beforehand.

However, there is no need to wait for holidays to invite friends to a restaurant - the more often you meet, the closer spring will be.
And for those who is already looking forward to holidays we have got a Christmas duck with pickled plum and white mushrooms and suckling pig with elderberry sauce and Anton apples.

Anatoliy Kazakov unvocers the secrets of the seas and oceans in the new gastronomic menu “Below sea level”.
It’s harvest time at Selfie! Zucchini, sweet carrot and cauliflower straight from the garden. Juicy garden apples and forrest bilberry. And, of course, mushrooms - fresh, salted, marinated. All the riches of Moscow’s suburban villages are collected in the new seasonal menu.
