A Sri Lankan Dinner

Back Back

It is believed that many of the island’s foods are influenced by the Portuguese, the Dutch, the Malays, the Arabs, and the South Indians, all of whom have left their culinary heritage in the island. Inspired by such multi-cultural culinary twists, the island has created its very own dishes to appease your taste buds. Relish a delectable eight-course Sri Lankan dinner to experience the essence of Sri Lankan cuisine in a single night.

Experience Overview

Take a stroll along the cobbled pathway of Hospital Street behind the Dutch Hospital Shopping Precinct and arrive at the place of your host. Take a seat in the intimate setting and indulge in an eight course degustation menu comprised of authentic dishes. Listen to the intriguing stories behind each dish as each course is prefaced by a little tale by your host. The friendly banter and conversation ensures you an evening’s worth entertainment. One of the highlights of the menu is the “lamprias”, a flavorful dish with a Dutch origin. Finish off your Sri Lankan dinner with an authentic dessert to satisfy your sweet tooth. Private sessions can be organized on request.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
