Sri Lankas cuisine is as unique, vibrant and as adventurous and packs a hefty punch no matter what you choose to try. The foodies and globe trotters are bound to find overlaps with other cultures but they will have their own unique twist, refined and adopted to suit the local Sri Lankan palate. There will be shortage of use of spices in our curries to arouse that aromatic sense of anticipation just before the flavours itself erupt in to a dance that stimulate those nerve ending driving impulses into your brain.

So we decided that we should  list out the best Sri Lankan food that you should try while you are in Sri Lanka. You can navigate through the different categories from best meals to individual dishes Sri Lankan culture has to offer. Remember that all curries taste best when they are warm freshly out from the kitchen (Once everything cools down there it just not the same)
