MONSOON noun / man’sou:n / – the season of rain during the summer months in hot Asian countries. It is the lifeblood of Asian harvests on which over a billion people rely.
The monsoons in South East Asian countries affect the style of food cooked across the region, from the way it is sourced to how it is prepared and consumed. At Monsoon Colombo, we revel in the variety of opportunities this offers us!
Our chefs regularly visit our suppliers to ensure we use the freshest, locally grown produce available. The two Indonesian chefs grew up in cultures that value wholesome home cooking and street food, and we take great pleasure in bringing their experience and expertise to you.
At Monsoon we bring you some of the regions’ favourite dishes from Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.
