As the last Friday of the month approaches, the opportunity to spice things up at the Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo Hopper Night is one not to be missed. The monthly event features just about every item of Sri Lankan cuisine at the poolside garden of the resort like city hotel.
The mouthwateringly spicy local dishes comprise a variety of hoppers, from crispy plain hoppers and egg hoppers to an innovative stuffed adaptation filled with a choice of savoury fillings. The buffet is not limited to hoppers as the theme of the night suggests, it includes an array of Sri Lankan mains such as pittu, rotti, kotthu rotti and string hoppers.
