Must Try Food Dishes in Sri Lanka – The Most Decadent Delicacies of the Island

The cuisine of Sri Lanka might not be the healthiest of South-Asia, but it’s definitely one of the most indulgent, with influences emanating from India, Portugal and even the Middle East.




These are thin bowl-shaped crepe-like pancakes with a doughy centre and are famous throughout Sri Lanka. These snacks can be consumed in a variety of ways but they are commonly served with an accompaniment made with chilli, salt and chopped onions called ‘lunu miris’. Egg hoppers are made by incorporating a fried egg into the centre of the hopper. Be sure to keep an eye out for these at restaurants in Kalutara.


Coconut Roti


These are unlike any other kind of flatbread you would have experienced. They are thicker than the usual flatbread and would generally have onions and chilli in addition to fresh coconut mixed into the dough. They also most commonly served with lunu miris but can be enjoyed in a variety of ways.


Rice and Curry


This is by far the most predominant dish that Sri Lanka has to offer, and is consumed by millions on a daily basis. No two places serve the same rice and curry, and they are usually given at restaurants as lunch packets. Rice and curry is also served at luxury resorts such as AVANI Kalutara Resort.


Kottu Roti


The most indulgent food that Sri Lanka has to offer definitely has to be kottu roti. These consist of shredded roti that has been stir fried with meat, vegetables and egg. The chicken-cheese kotthu is to die for.
