Celebrate Independence Day with Ape Kema at Mount Lavinia Hotel

Monday, February 2nd, 2015

If there is one hotel that can boast about being part of pre-independence and post-independence Sri Lanka, it is none other than the Mount Lavinia Hotel.

Built by one of the British Governor’s in Ceylon, Sir Thomas Maitland, it was within the same halls of this building that the Kandyan intrigue with the involvement of Ehelepola Adigar and John D’Oyly came into being with the then Governor Sir Robert Brownrigg. Transforming from a Governor’s Residence, to a military hospital during World War II, and subsequently to a hotel under local and international ownership, Mount Lavinia Hotel has not only taken a part of shaping Sri Lanka’s history but also been a part of world history.

With the dawn of Independence until present, the hotel has opened its doors to patrons from around the world. Its signature being colonial heritage blended with true Sri Lankan hospitality.

This Independence Day, Mount Lavinia Hotel offers a taste of true Sri Lankan cuisine with the special lunch buffet, Ape Kema. Prepared by Culinary Expert Chef Publis, the icon for authentic Sri Lankan food, Ape Kema will feature a variety of dishes including Beef Dummassa, Kompittu, Pork Ambula, Polos Kadala Curry, Mutton Chatti Roast, Bath Rasa Gulawa, Habalapethi Pudding, Waraka Gini Sisila (Flambe) and much more.

Reminisce the passage of history that brought independence as you celebrate Sri Lanka as you savour the delicious Sri Lankan dishes with just the right spices and aroma, surrounded by the colonial legacy left behind from the pre-independence era.
