Sri Lanka’s iconic beverage brand Elephant House Ginger Beer, lovingly referred to as EGB, entered into a partnership with Kaema Sutra – the unique contemporary Sri Lankan restaurant launched by celebrated chef and restaurateur Dharshan Munidasa and Bollywood star and former Miss Sri Lanka, Jacqueline Fernandez in partnership with entrepreneurs Raju Chandiram and Shalin Balasuriya. Having identified how the rush of fresh ginger in every sip of EGB perfectly complements the gastronomical treats on offer, Kaema Sutra has chosen to serve EGB as its only soft drink. “At Kaema Sutra we seek to offer a contemporary Sri Lankan culinary experience. Right from the location and décor to the dishes on our menu, we have carefully handpicked each element to deliver this. Blending in harmoniously with the dishes we proudly serve, EGB comes in as a welcome addition to our menu. And I’m sure our patrons too will relish its unique Sri Lankan flavour,” said Dharshan Munidasa. “EGB’s uniquely native flavour makes it the ideal accompaniment to a Sri Lankan meal. Created from a recipe that is over a century old, EGB is made using 100% natural ginger sourced locally from farmers in the Central Province,” said Daminda Gamlath, Head of Beverages, Elephant House and Vice President, John Keells Holdings. “We are excited to see how Kaema Sutra puts a modern-day twist to traditional Sri Lankan dishes and are delighted to partner with them. Together, EGB and Kaema Sutra can help its diners from around the world appreciate Sri Lankan cuisine better,” he added. Located at the newly opened Arcade at Independence Square, the restaurant has fast become a preferred choice of locals and tourists alike. Dharshan and his highly trained kitchen staff serve up a host of mouth-watering delights which together with EGB’s refreshingly local flavours make for a scrumptious Sri Lankan meal.
