Sri Lanka is a country that is as famous for its delicious variety of native cuisine as it is for the many picturesque beaches and captivating hills that bless this tiny island nation. Jaffna cuisine is an integral and vital component of Sri Lanka’s culinary identity.
The ‘Yaal Virindu’ food festival held until 15 September at Ramada Colombo, celebrates the distinct flavours of northern Sri Lanka that separate it from the traditional cuisine found in the rest of the island.
As one of the first hotels in Colombo to introduce the Jaffna Food Festival back in 2002, Ramada Colombo has built up a reputation as one of the benchmarks for Jaffna cuisine in the city. Iconic favourites such as the Odiyal Kool Soup (prepared in a traditional manner by the pool) and Jaffna Crab Curry, are just some of the delightful array of dishes guaranteed to captivate your taste buds. The delicious range of food prepared by chefs brought down from Jaffna is complimented live music and captivating décor. Head over to Ramada Colombo between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. to experience the wonders of Jaffna Cuisine at only Rs. 2,900 nett per person and half rate for children below 12 years of age.
