National Curry Week // Lamprais Lottery // 7th-13th October
National Curry Week is a great reason to come together to celebrate curries from around the world!
Throughout years of colonization and influence from other countries, Sri Lanka has adapted its food culture into a blend of different curry concoctions and tasty dishes.
In honour of National Curry Week we’re celebrating the loving collaboration of special recipes unique to the Dutch Burgher community in Sri Lanka. For the week of 7th – 11th October join us during lunchtime to enjoy the wonderfully smelling parcel that comes to you beautifully wrapped in charred banana leaf – Lamprais.
In the olden days, Lamprais was a firm Sunday favourite that took about 2 whole days of preparation and whole morning of cooking. It is truly a labour of love, unwrapped and devoured by family, extended family and friends after returning home from morning church service. The term Lamprais is derived from the Dutch word ‘lomprijst’ which loosely translates into ‘packet of rice’.
To mark the occasion we’re running a ‘Lamprais Lottery’; any one who orders a Lamprais during National Curry Week is in the chance for any of these special prizes:
–Love Cake Ice Cream Sandwich–
Lamprais will be priced at £19, available at both Soho and St Christopher’s Place lunchtime only (12pm-2.30pm) during National Curry Week 7th – 11th October 2019.
