Food For Though: Pol Boy

Thuli Weerasena is the mind behind Pol Boy, a monthly supper club that draws on his heritage and upbringing. Pol Boy is a medley of Thuli’s Sri Lankan-British upbringing, through this supper club Thuli shares part of his identity, part of his being with his guests. Currently based out of the Brixton Pound Cafe, Pol Boy aims to bring the flavours and values of Sri Lanka to the streets and mouths of London on a monthly basis. We caught up with Thuli to talk about why he set up Pol Boy, his upbringing and the role food can play in bridging cultures, languages and borders.
