Pioneering Sri Lankan street food restaurant group The Coconut Tree will be giving the traditional Christmas Dinner a south Asian twist this winter. The independent boutique operators are front-runners in bringing fresh Sri Lankan dishes to the UK, coupled with a laid-back, convivial atmosphere.

Whether it’s Sri-Lankan-style Split Sprouts with Cashews (£6) or the brand new spiced Turkey Baubles with a tangy cranberry dipping sauce (£6) – the island-inspired festive dishes are sure to warm the cockles on a cold winter’s day.

The ‘Ho, Ho, Hopper’ (£3.50) also makes a return; a jolly and bright beetroot hopper (traditional coconut milk pancake) with Cranberry Lunu Miris (cranberry & onion relish), Curry Leaf Sambol (grated coconut with curry leaves), and onions caramelised with a hint of Sri Lankan Cinnamon.

A new ‘Santa Lanka’ cocktail (£7) has been added to the ‘Cocotail’ menu; a decadent combo of warming Ceylon coconut arrack - a Sri Lankan spirit distilled from coconut flower nectar - shaken with vodka, crisp apple juice, spicy ginger beer and a dusting of sweet Sri Lankan cinnamon.

The new Xmas dishes will be available from Monday 22nd November to Friday 31st December. For the first time, this year, The Coconut Tree will also offer a choice of four packages for Christmas (Thu - Sun) with advance booking necessary.

Sri Lankan Street Food at The Coconut Tree

The Coconut Tree’s take on the increasingly popular cuisine is made up of smaller tapas-style dishes embracing plants, fish and meat - it’s an abundant menu that naturally offers something for everyone.

Popular dishes include ‘Hot Battered Spicy Cuttlefish’; green peas and ‘Cashew Nuts’ soaked and cooked in coconut cream; and ‘Cheesy Colombo’ – cheese cubes fried and mixed Colombo style. ‘Jaffna Goat Curry with potato’ is also a firm favourite, as is the ‘Black Pork’ which consists of diced pork belly cooked in 30 roasted spices.

Finally, ‘Kotthu’ is a fine example of a street food served all over the country - made with finely chopped roti and cooked with egg, vegetables and / or meat.

As summer arrives, the Cornish shores around St Ives come alive with swarms of mackerel. This sustainable catch, sourced from Celtic Fish & Game who use traditional bait and lines, makes for a delightful summer BBQ dish when paired with a floral elderflower brine and a sweet apple & elderflower jelly. If you can't find fresh elderflowers, a high-quality cordial works just as well.
