Spring Celebrations: Mother’s Day & Easter Sunday at The Coconut Tree

Feb 23 2022

Pioneering Sri Lankan street food restaurant The Coconut Tree is celebrating Mother’s Day and Easter Sunday across its restaurants.

Mum’s Eat Free

From midday until 9pm on Mother’s Day mums can eat for free, enjoying any three dishes from The Coconut Tree’s main menu on the house. The offer is valid on all advance bookings.

Operations Director, Rashinthe Rodrigo, said “We’re big on family at The Coconut Tree, and we think mums – and of all those who love and care for others on a daily basis – are all-round heroes! We want to do something to say a little thank you, from us to them.”

Easter Eats

The Coconut Tree will also be bringing back its limited edition ‘Creme Egg Choccy Hopper’ in time for Easter weekend – the perfect way to celebrate with a sweet and savoury treat.

A hopper is a bowl-shaped pancake made from fermented rice flour and coconut milk. Cooked in small round pans, they are crispy around the edges, and thicker at the bottom, and are often served as part of a traditional Sri Lankan breakfast with a selection of spicy sambals.

The limited edition Creme Egg Choccy Hopper from The Coconut Tree pairs a hopper with a filling of melted chocolate, crushed mini-eggs and a smashed Creme Egg, to give this authentic Sri Lankan street-food staple a sweet and seasonal twist.

The Creme Egg Choccy Hoppers, priced at £5 each, will be available throughout Easter weekend, from Good Friday to Easter Monday.

The Coconut Tree delivers an authentic Sri Lankan experience through family-style dining, inventive ‘Cocotails’ and a warm atmosphere where all are welcome. Good Food. Good People. Good Times.

The Story So Far

The Coconut Tree is more than just a bar and restaurant. They are a family. Take a handful of Sri Lankan boys, a couple of others along the way – watch them invest everything back into the business as they ‘shape Sri Lankan eats in the UK’!

THE COCONUT TREE MANTRA

Don’t expect a napkin, it’s a roll of paper towels;
Do expect an explosion of flavours in our dishes and sweet and fiery cocktails;
Do expect candles in half coconuts;
Don’t expect a massive food bill, but do expect to spoil yourself with drinks;
Do expect warm Sri Lankan hospitality – and don’t expect the volume to stay down for too long!
