விருந்து Tamil Feasts
விருந்து Tamil Feasts is a social enterprise supporting recently settled asylum seekers through the celebration of food and culture and serving up traditional Sri Lankan fare prepared by Tamil men currently seeking asylum in Australia.
These thrice-weekly feasts create a context in which the cooks are able to share the food heritage of their homeland with the wider community. This unique enterprise simultaneously creates a space in which Australians are able to show their support of individuals who are presently seeking asylum all while partaking in some seriously tasty food!
Diners feast upon a traditional banquet of curries, chutneys, vadai, dahl, and masalas made by Proud Tamil cooks Richman, Nirma, Niro and Nigethan. It is a unique opportunity to experience the vibrant colour, spice and flavour of authentic Tamil cuisine—rarely found outside Sri Lanka.
Feasts are every THURSDAY & FRIDAY nights in the Merri Café at 7:00pm. These three-course feasts are only $35. Kiddos-sized feast plates (without the spice) are valued at $20. Children under 2 join in the fun for free! With an ever-changing menu, no two feasts are the same!
Tamil Feasts have a limited capacity and are pre-book only!
