Proceeds from the ticket sales for the meal will be going towards supporting the victims of the Sri Lanka attacks, which occurred on Easter Sunday earlier this year.

mcith_Ministry-of-Crab-hero.jpgSri Lanka’s legendary restaurant Ministry of Crab, one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants is coming to Shangri-La Hotel, At The Shard, London, for a two-day charity pop-up event this July.

Chef Dharshan Munidasa will be preparing a five-course menu celebrating Sri Lankan cuisine to tantalise every crab lover in London.

The Ministry of Crab event will be hosted in the hotel’s Sky Lounge on level 34 on the 5th and 6th July to coincide with the ICC Cricket World Cup.

Proceeds from tickets sold for the dining experience will be donated to those affected by the recent attacks in Sri Lanka.

Diners will enjoy two appetisers; a light avocado and crab salad and a delicious Sri Lankan baked crab dish which brings an original twist to a crab risotto.

The main course kicks off with Chef Dharshan Munidasa’s garlic chilli crab, offering a fusion of flavour where Mediterranean and Japanese food philosophies meet.

This will be closely followed by his much-loved Pepper Crab ensemble made with hand crushed black pepper, red peppercorns and pepper stock to really spice up the evening.

To complete the meal, a pandan leaf rice pudding served with a light and refreshing mango sorbet is served.

The array of creative crab is accompanied by popular Asian beers Tiger and Tsingtao as well as a selection of signature cocktails created by the hotel’s bar team.

In addition to taking in the sweeping views of London’s most iconic landmarks, guests will have the opportunity to watch the ICC Cricket World Cup matches shown on a large screen near the tables.

Tickets for this charity pop-up event are priced at £85 per person for the five-course meal (beverages are priced separately) and are available for dinner on Friday 5th July and lunch and dinner on Saturday 6th July.
