OUR FOOD AND DRINK
The culinary brigades at Aitken Spence Hotels are among the best in Sri Lanka, having won numerous awards over the years.
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.
SRI LANKAN FOOD
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.
WEDDINGS & HONEYMOONS
We assist and organize weddings to the specific requirements of the bride & groom, and strive to provide memories that last a life time. From the venue, to the gastronomic requirements, to the point where matrimonial vows are exchanged we promise to turn dreams into reality.
Thanks to its golden shores, captivating sunsets and pristine waters, the Maldives have been likened to a slice of heaven found on earth. This is why many couples from around the world come to its shores to tie the knot amongst spectacular surroundings.
