What - Jaffna Food Festival
Who - My Sister's Kitchen - Thush
Where - The Sandwich Factory
On Sunday, My Sister's Kitchen collaborated with The Sandwich Factory to bring Colombo the funkiest fusion of Jaffna flavors with a western twist for a ONE DAY ONLY Festival, so as a true Jaffna Boy I did not do anything but just dress up for the event. It was great to see people rushing in an hour before serving time, so the festival did start off on a good note.
Speaking to Thush “Sister” she says “this is a good way for more people to try Jaffna food, and this is served easy so its enjoyable. SF and MSK together they combined the best of both worlds".
All the dishes which were served had a story, who can say “no” to some Beef Toasties, it was always a hit at our home, so all the Jaffna cuisine served were inspired by precious family recipes, just to keep the flavors real.
The menu was planed well, not too spicy and no 100 items on the list. I ranked it with stars based on consumer feed back – a few toped at 5 stars
