Uga Escapes’ newest property is the Residence – not a resort, but a grand old Colombo townhouse converted into a unique boutique city hotel with a unique approach to fine food and drink. At Residence, haute cuisineis happily blended to a contemporary aesthetic based on unusual, often local ingredients and imaginative preparation and presentation.
Imagine breakfasting on French toast flavoured with guava or passion-fruit, or starting a long, leisurely lunch with a salad of lotus root and blood tuna and finishing off with a mango and pistachio millefeuille… or dining in informal elegance on black pork curry with seared coconut relish, followed by apple crumble and ice-cream set off with tamarind purée. Dishes like these are typical of the Residence ‘philosophy of food’, while guests who prefer more familiar fare will find a range of palate-comforting classics on the menu as well.
Well-stored wines from a large, intelligently-stocked cellar complement the parade of delicious, imaginative dishes. And unlike many other hotels, guests at RESIDENCE will find that our bar and round-the-clock in-room-dining menus offer almost as much variety as the à la carte. Whenever and wherever you choose to eat at the Residence, you’ll find the fare an endless delight.
