North Indian flavours back at The Dining Room
Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo is well known for its Thai, Chinese,
Mediterranean, Japanese and International cuisine restaurants, but its
North Indian cuisine is an unsung attraction.
Chef Rana, originally of New Delhi, has been Lakeside's Indian wonder
from as far back as its Saffron Restaurant days. His North Indian fare
is well known amongst Colombo's culinary circles and surpasses that of
other dedicated North Indian restaurants.
Seven Degrees North features a signature North Indian dish every
month but diners can order items from the North Indian menu while
sitting in any restaurant at the hotel.
Every month The Dining Room at Cinnamon Lakeside Colombo has
something new to offer diners and this month is no exception. Due to the
demand for good Indian and Sri Lankan food, The Dining Room chefs headed
by Chef Rana from the Indian kitchen and Chef Wijesiri from the Sri
Lankan kitchen, have cooked up with a spectacular menu consisting of
both North Indian and Sri Lankan gastronomy. This impressive menu at the
North India Meets Sri Lanka themed buffet highlights the best of both
cuisines with traditional dishes hitting sharp and milder notes for the
perfect balance. The buffet consists of many familiar items such as
Tandoori kebabs such as Tandoori lamb chaap and Lasooni lobster, Dal
palak shorba and Hydrabadi gost biriyani also known as mutton biriyani
which is always a hit at the hotel.
A flavoursome chicken preparation known as Murugh pistaju, Acchari
macchi fish curry, Vegetable angan bari together with a variety of
Naan's and Roti's are some of the must try dishes on this menu.
Not letting the Sri Lankan side down, the buffet continues with
crispy Plain hoppers, Egg hoppers, vegetable and chicken Kottu, and
village mallums to name a few.
This delightful fusion of cultures creates a culinary adventure that
should not be missed out on. The special buffet is available until April
28 from 7pm to 11pm.
