We have a cook in our home who specialises in delicious Sri Lankan cuisine. She will prepare your breakfast. You will have a choice of Sri Lankan or continental breakfast. Home cooked Sri Lankan meals for lunch and / or dinner can also be arranged.

Sri Lankan cuisine mainly consists of boiled or steamed rice served with curry. This usually consists of a “main curry” of fish, chicken, pork or mutton (typically goat), as well as several other curries made with vegetables, fruits and lentils.

String Hoppers is another food native to Sri Lanka, served mainly for breakfast or dinner and often accompanied by a mix of red onions and spices. A side dish to compliment string hoppers is yellow egg curry with potatoes.
