From the lagoons of Sri Lanka to the Maldives, meet the man who helms The Crab Shack
Priyantha is the head chef at The Crab Shack at Soneva Jani, recently voted the world’s most romantic restaurant by CNN Travel. He grew up on a diet of lagoon crabs in Sri Lanka and now serves crab dishes inspired by the family recipes of Soneva’s chefs.
The Crab Shack’s signature dishes include the must-try black pepper crab, dishes featuring Sri Lankan mud, Alaskan and Kamchatka crabs (all Marine Stewardship Council certified), Mediterranean favourites and the ceviche of the day. Each dish on the menu comes with a carefully paired wine, Champagne, gin or lager.
