The restaurants at the Earl’s Regency Hotel combine the best traditions of international fine dining with a Sri Lankan touch, making the meals here a memorable and unique experience.
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.
