The culinary brigade at Heritance Ahungalla is one of the best in Sri Lanka, having won numerous awards over the years. Most recently, in August 2011, they won awards for the Best Hotel Team and Best Culinary Team at the Culinary Arts Competition organised by the Chefs Guild of Sri Lanka.
So you can look forward to some excellent cuisine during your holiday!
Traditional Sri Lankan food is a wonderful mix of taste, colour and aroma. Because the island’s location made it a popular stopping-off point for foreign traders, indigenous spices such as cinnamon and cloves have been enriched by diverse culinary influences from around the world.
For example, the Arabs introduced saffron and rose water, while the Portuguese not only brought chillies to the island but also culinary terms such as “temper”, which is derived from the Portuguese word temperado, meaning to fry and season.
The Dutch introduced recipes rich in eggs and butter, like Breudher, a Dutch Christmas cake. There are also Malay influences, such as the steamed dessert watalappam and the rice dishes pilau and biriyani.
Our buffets in the Jute Restaurant will give you the opportunity to try a wide range of Sri Lankan food, as well as the best of international cuisine. With dozens of choices and regular theme nights, you need never eat the same dish twice!
For fine dining in a sophisticated ambience, we also offer a global à la carte dinner menu in the Upper Room.
