Recreating those big, happy feasts at home, meals at Why House are a convivial, social extravaganza. You can either eat at the alfresco dining pavilion or at other nooks by the garden or pool. Their team of chefs whip up epicurean flavours inspired by Western, Lebanese, Indian and Sri Lankan cuisines and are touted to be one of the best restaurants in the area. Start your day with homemade granola, tropical fruit, poached eggs, or if you're hankering for something traditional, go for the buffalo curd and Sri Lankan curries. Tuck into fried noodles, grilled fish, club sandwiches and salads during lunch. Dinners at the hotel are a gourmand's playground with an assortment of fragrant stews, crispy hoppers, roast chicken with roasted potatoes, Singaporean laksas and barbecued seafood. Craving something sweet? Dig into their sumptuous desserts, especially their kithul tart that comes with a side of brittle peanut ice cream and their locally-made teacakes.
If you wish to dine elsewhere, ask the staff for recommendations. A few places you could check out are Wijaya Beach Restaurant, Kahanda Kanda, the Fortress and the Kingfisher.
