My last event for November was to attend a wonderful Sri Lankan Curry Lunch with a lovely group of fellow Tylers and Bricklayers. This has become a regular event in the diary of the T&Bs, an excellent addition to our events list. The lunch is organised by the City University Club who bring a top chef from Sri Lanka to the UK each year to prepare the amazing food. Sri Lankan curries are quite different from the traditional North Indian and Bangladeshi curries that we have been accustomed to, the flavours being more pungent and aromatic.

A group of 18 very jolly Tylers and Bricklayers and guests turned up for the lunch which was held at the City University Club in Crutched Friars. We were welcomed with a nice cold Cobra beer and wine and settled down to some conversation in the warm and comfortable lounge. At 12:30pm we were taken to a private room that had been set up for our own exclusive use which made it very special for us.

We dined on a huge variety of curries including, cashew nut curry, beef pol kiri, devilled king prawns, tempered dhal curry, pineapple curry and many others, with plenty of accompaniments. All the while we were kept fully supplied with beers and wines.

It was a delight to meet the Chef, Krishna, who works for a very prestigious hotel in Sri Lanka, the Heritance Kandalama. We all thanked him heartily for making such wonderfully tasty food.

This was yet another very pleasant luncheon where we were able to chat amongst friends in a private room and enjoy each other's company, wonderful.
