About us

Our island home is world renowned for many things, but pepper and crab are culinary treasures we generally take for granted. Sri Lankan crab are considered rather special; a sought after delicacy that takes pride of place in global seafood fare. Our day to day, humble peppercorn was once fought over by colonial rulers who found the local crop to be exceptional in strength and flavour.

At BLACK PEPPER, we combine the wonders of these two local celebrities by bringing you a range of authentic dishes from around Sri Lanka. North, South, East and West – each region has its own distinctive ingredients and methods of preparation making each recipe truly unique in taste.

We never compromise on authenticity or quality. The pepper is grown and harvested from our own plantations, and we only use fresh, live crab, always.
