Emirates lays out an ‘Avurudu’ table for premium passengers at BIA

Traditional Sri Lankan festive delicacies to be served at Emirates Lounge on April 13 -14

Emirates is joining the Sinhala and Tamil New Year celebrations in Sri Lanka by serving traditional sweetmeats at the airline’s lounge at Bandaranaike International Airport (BIA). The special festive menu promises to treat passengers to the delectable taste of local culture and showcase the airline’s affinity with the communities it serves.

On the 13th and 14th of April when local communities celebrate ‘Avurudu’ – the ending of an old year and the dawning of a new one – and pay tribute to the sun for its role in a bountiful harvest, the Emirates lounge at BIA will be serving classic delicacies that are a popular feature of the Sri Lankan festive table.

The celebrations just got sweeter with a spread of special menu items including milk rice or ‘kiribath,’ a rice pudding simmered in fragrant coconut milk and served alongside customary spicy accompaniments as well as ‘kokis’, a crisp-fried rice flour cookie made with traditional butterfly-shaped moulds.
