Seeing that there is no Sri Lankan restaurant within a 200 miles radius, and Sri Lankan food is probably some of the tastiest to stuff to emerge in popular consciousness in the last few years, I would have thought there would have been a run, no, a sprint, to sign up for the latest Sri Lankan Supper club. After all, I’ve done these Supper clubs all over the country and they’ve always sold out, but for some reason, the home town crowd here in Bmore is a hard sell. The last time I did one locally, I had only 10 guests and I would love to at least surpass that number this time. So if there ANY adventurous foodies out there in the Charm City, stand up and be counted! Here’s what’s in store:
Beef cutlets – deep-fried, breaded croquettes stuffed with beef, potatoes, and spices
Masala Vadai – vegetarian appetizer made with yellow split peas; similar to falafel
Steamed, fragrant Basmathi rice
Black Pork Curry
Fish Ambul Thiyal – Sour fish curry, a signature Sri Lankan dish
Dahl – red lentils stewed in coconut milk and spices
Mallun – Sauteed greens
French bean curry
Sri Lankan Salad
Pol Sambol – shredded coconut with chili, lime, and spices
Caramel Pudding (Flan)
If that’s not enough to grab your attention, in the absence of smellivision, I’m going to have to resort to some good old fashioned food porn.
Tickets are available here:
See you next Saturday!!
