Boardwalk Garden at Waters Edge will transform into a typical Sri Lankan village from 10-13 September, featuring a delicious plethora of classical Sri Lankan dishes. The spice-rich cuisine of Sri Lanka stems from its plush history, culture, influences by neighbouring regions, foreign trade and colonial powers. 

Similar to the vast geographical variances of the country, the cooking techniques, flavours and certain ingredients greatly differ from region to region; some dishes are considered as a specialty to the different cities. Due to such variances Sri Lankan cuisine is truly a delight to discover for most locals and tourists alike. For this purpose Waters Edge welcomes each and every one to experience the ‘Tastes of Sri Lanka; ft. King of Hoppers Chef Ravi & Rotti Maestro Chef Farris’ from 7 p.m. to 12 p.m. at Rs. 1,700 per person.

This is to be enjoyed with over 60 Sri Lankan dishes originating from distinctive regions of the island. The specialty in Sri Lankan food is that the same food is differently made in different regions; Negombo pork stew with liver, Batticaloa mutton curry, Jaffna kool curry etc. 

‘Tastes of Sri Lanka; ft. King of Hoppers Chef Ravi & Rotti Maestro Chef Farris’ will showcase the culinary experts Chef Ravindrapala (also known as ‘Appaya’) and Chef Yusuf Farris Mohomad (known as ‘Rottiya’) in their expertise of rotti and hoppers.
