Hear the clash of metal on metal, creating that very distinctive sound, and you know it’s time for ‘kottu’. Not just any kottu but kottu from the Hilton, dished out this evening.
Their main objective of bringing back this popular kottu fest is to give the public the opportunity and experience of coming to the hotel to enjoy a ‘kottu meal’ at an affordable price in a 5-star atmosphere. With over a hundred chefs making the kottu, chicken and vegetable, there will also be many beverages, dessert and snack stalls.
Asked why they had selected Kottu, Gigi de Silva, Marketing and Communications Manager said, “Sri Lanka is strong in its authenticity. We are multi-national and multi-cultural and Kottu seems an ideal food that can represent the blend of all cultures in our country.”
Apart from the culinary delights, some well-known entertainers will be on hand to delight the crowd – Elephant foot drummers from Hikkaduwa, Channa’s dance troupe and Iraj.
The ‘Kottu Fest’ will take place today at the Hilton Sports Centre car park from 6 p.m. with tickets priced at Rs. 350 (inclusive of a portion of kottu) and additional portions at Rs. 200. Tickets are available at the Hilton Sports Centre and parking will be available at the public car park opposite Lake House.
