The most loved Sri Lankan food combinations will be served at the Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo on 29 April.  Pittu with Babath, String Hoppers with Fish Ambulthiyal, a ‘Kottu’ of Godhamba roti, vegetables and meat, and Hoppers with Seeni Sambol and a lavish spread of curries to match.  

Hoppers are the specialty of the night and come in the crispy classic version, as Egg Hoppers, as well as with a variety of stuffings.  Stuffed hoppers range from sweet to savoury with cheese and chilli hoppers, masala hoppers, ‘kiri appa’ and several more.  Hopper Night guests flock to the cuttlefish counter for a taste of the fresh crispy cuttlefish that the hotel is known for and for the beef curry too that’s a big hit!  Simple is always best and even the simplest potato curry oozes with flavour.

A calypso band will make its way amongst the tables treating guests to songs from the yesteryear.  It is advisable to save some space for dessert as an assortment of local treats await.  To give you a sneak peak at the dessert counter, Lavariya, Dodol, Milk Toffee, Kokis, Kavum, Asmi, Halapa, Mung Kavum, Coconut Rock and Banana Fritters are just some of the sweetmeats that will be on offer.  

The Hopper Night is a standard month end feature at the Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo and this month it falls on Friday, 29 April.  Open from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m, a fabulous spread is served for just Rs. 1,200+++.  The Poolbar will  take reservations on 2491998.  An early reservation is strongly advised.
