As the Cricket world cup rocks Colombo with 49 matches to be played, there is one venue where you can catch all the action. At the Taj Samudra it may be as good as being there for real, maybe even better. The ambience promises to be one of true cricketing spirit.

The Mix Bar will be the place for all cricket fanatics. With your eyes glued on the big screen, enjoy a host of special snacks from the world cup countries and cocktails to match … The Nyama Choma of Kenya or beef short ribs grilled over charcoal and served with greens and mashed sweet potato is a sure must try! The delicious Chatamari or rice pancake is a favourite of Bangladesh whilst the all time hot dish Murgh Tikka or chicken pieces marinated with yoghurt and spices, and baked in Tandoor oven stems from the cricket crazy India. The Blue mountain mixed grill of pork chop, lamb chop, sausage, beef, bacon, chicken drumstick and an egg with mash or chips is one the Aussies will tell you to indulge in. What’s more, for real match food we’ll be dishing out “kadala” and more Sri Lankan favourites too!

Walk in through the wine cellar at Latitude and cricket fever engulfs you. At dinner time we serve a very special menu with items from every cricket nation. Be it the curried sweet potato soup a favourite for the Kiwi’s, Caribbean Grilled Chicken or the bold flavours of Bangladeshi Spicy Fish Kallia and even the original Australian sausage stew from down under.

The Taj invites you to drop by for the ultimate cricketing experience … Call 2446622 to reserve your seat now.
