Street Food in Sri Lanka – ULTIMATE FOOD TOUR – Egg Hoppers + Kottu Roti in Colombo, Sri Lanka!
by Mark Wiens
COLOMBO, SRI LANKA – We went on an ultimate Sri Lankan street food tour of Colombo, starting from the outskirts of the city and working our way into the market, and all the way to the Galle Face coast. Colombo is a fantastic city, vibrant, and calm and relaxing all the at the same time, and an array of delicious food.
Breakfast roti – We started in the morning for a classic Sri Lankan food breakfast, roti, stuffed with egg, chopped up and topped with curry sauce and dall. It was delicious, especially followed with ginger tea. Total price – 200 LKR ($1.12)
Milano Hotel (Restaurant) – For lunch, Ruzaina and I went to eat at one of her favorite Sri Lankan local restaurants serving a mix of rice and curry. Highly recommended. Total price – 760 LKR ($4.24)
New Paris Hotel – One of my favorite Sri Lankan foods is hoppers, and more specifically egg hoppers – a combinations of rice flour batter and coconut milk, fried in a rounded skillet and topped with an egg. Egg hoppers – 40 LKR ($0.22) eac
Fruit – 100 LKR ($0.56) – First we stopped to eat some pickled and candied fruit. I especially liked the black pepper rub on some of the fruit like the pineapple.
Bombay Sweetmeat Mart – One of the popular local Sri Lankan things to eat in Pettah is faluda and samosas. Pretty good, but I’m not huge on faluda. Total price – 320 LKR ($1.79)
Intestines and chicken necks – 390 LKR ($2.18) – Next we stopped to eat intestines and tripe, and chicken necks. All of it was pretty tasty, my kind of snack. Brains – 660 LKR ($3.68) – Next up on this Sri Lankan street food tour, we had a huge bite of brains, all of us.
Galle Face – Finally, to end this Sri Lankan food tour, we headed to the most iconic area of Colombo – Galle Face. In the evening you’ll find food vendors setting up, selling snacks and quick meals. Isso Vadai – 200 LKR ($1.12) – are fried little fritters of shrimp and crab, and it’s something you’ve got to try. I ended with special kottu roti – 600 LKR ($3.35).
