The Coconut Stories
Tuesday 10th September, 6.30-10pm
With the multitude of greens, vegetables, lentils, cashew nuts and coconut milk, Sri Lankan food is said to be one of the healthiest ways of eating, and with The Coconut Tree's ethos of: “everyone is welcome to the table,” you will experience true Sri Lankan hospitality at this very special supper club.
On arrival you will be presented with a deliciously crafted Cocotail, before being seated to enjoy one of The Coconut Tree's signatures 'The Drunken Sri Lankan'.
You will hear from Naveen, General Manager and business partner Rodrigo Rashin, all about The Coconut Tree's story, the heritage of Sri Lankan food and culture, and the incredible Ruby Fund, a real life Elephant, for which the proceeds from your cocotails contribute to setting her free into the wild.
Next, get ready for non-stop Hoppers with two live Hopper demonstration tables, before a tasting banquet like no other, that covers every dietary requirement and is utterly bespoke on the night. To finish, there will be a selection of sweets such as Watalappam and some very special Treacle Hoppers that will delight your taste buds.
All of this will take place from 7.00-9.30pm whilst being surrounded by the protective gaze of the Sri Lankan Masks, who looking down on diners from the walls are said to ward off evil spirits.
18.30hr - Arrival - Arrive promptly at 18.30pm for your arrival cocotail, before being seated at your table to enjoy your Drunken Sri Lankan Experience in aid of the Ruby Fund.
