A Guide to Street Food in Colombo – A Cuisine to Remember

The cuisine of Sri Lanka has gained popularity globally because of the unique blend of spices and burst of flavour. When in Sri Lanka, trying out street food is a must as it gives you a rather adventurous eating experience.


String hoppers

This is one of the most popular dishes in the country, making up an important part of a Sri Lankan breakfast, sometimes even dinner. String hoppers are usually served with dhal, coconut sambol and other sauces. Most restaurants in Colombo serve this delicacy!


Kottu roti

Kottu roti is a favourite and loved dish when it comes to Sri Lankan cuisine, with the perfect balance of flavours to taste. The dish is primarily made from roti, egg, spices, vegetables and a meat of your choice. Kottu roti is served at numerous different restaurants, so you’ll not be at a loss to find it!



Stroll around Pettah’s central station and you’ll find plenty of vendors and food stalls selling short eats such as samosas. These scrumptious delights are made by frying up a flatbread that is stuffed with vegetables and spices, sometimes even meat.


Seafood specialities

Colombo is a paradise for seafood lovers, so drop by Mount Lavinia Hotel if you’re craving some seafood. Crabs, king prawns, snapper, lobster and squid are a few of the many options available to you. Although this isn’t necessarily street food, it’s a must try!
