October 19, 2023 – An innovative marketing chance to escape to the sun with the capital’s number 1 restaurant on TripAdvisor – are you ready for the Curry Bowl Zagreb Kotthu Challenge?

Two brothers came from Sri Lanka with a dream of opening a restaurant in Zagreb. Several years later, not only is Curry Bowl Zagreb open, it is thriving, sitting pretty at number one out of 882 restaurants in the capital on TripAdvisor.

And it is not only the excellent food and service which is catching the eye. There is some pretty slick marketing too, which sets Curry Bowl Zagreb apart from the rest. Where else can you win a free trip to Sri Lanka, for example?

Are you ready for the Kotthu Challenge? In the words of Curry Bowl Zagreb themselves:

About our event, Kotthu Challenge:

Before the pandemic, we annually hosted our Kotthu Challenge, which always drew significant media attention and public engagement. This event is a fantastic fusion of cultures, promoting not only our restaurant but also the rich tapestry of Sri Lankan culture.

Event Details:

Date: Saturday, October 28th

Location: Curry Bowl Restaurant, Tkalčićeva 44, Zagreb

This lively contest will bring together ten enthusiastic participants, all competing for the main prize. The challenge is to be the first to finish our signature dish, Kotthu, a delightful Sri Lankan street food specialty, alongside a large Lion beer, also from Sri Lanka. And the grand prize? A complete, all-expenses-covered journey spanning 7 days and 6 nights in Sri Lanka!
