Food in Sri Lanka – Dine the Lankan Way

Sri Lankan cuisine despite various influences from around the world has remained unique in its own authenticity and explosion of flavour. Here are a few definite ‘must tries’ while in Sri Lanka.


Cheese Kottu

Made from diced godamba roti, meat / vegetables and lots of cheese, the kottu is a quintessential street food loved by all Lankans. It is a definite must try during a jaunt through the bustling streets.


Quite like crepes, the Sri Lankan hopper has gained international fame in the culinary world. Made from rice flour and coconut milk, it is paired with spicy sambals; chutneys made out of fresh herbs. From small roadside eateries to beachside resorts the likes of AVANI Bentota Resort & Spa you are sure to find this unique creation at diverse dining venues, each providing their own spin on it.



Hot Butter Cuttlefish

‘HBC’ or hot butter cuttlefish is a dish synonymous with the popular Sri Lankan Chinese cuisine. This mouthwatering dish can be found in almost all popular coastal destinations around the island such as Bentota. Restaurants often serve their own versions of it and it’s the perfect accompaniment to a cold beer during a hot afternoon.


Milk Rice

Milk rice is a very traditional Sri Lankan dish and is usually served on an auspicious occasion. Quite similar to a milk pudding, it is made with coconut milk and a touch of sea salt. Fresh sambals, spicy fish or chicken curry along with a piece of jaggery is usually served along with it.
