Flavours of Sri Lanka

Flavours of Sri Lanka
No trip to Sri Lanka is complete without experiencing the unique cuisine this country has to offer. Drawing influences from southern India, South East Asia and its Dutch and British colonial past, Sri Lanka has resulted in a fusion style of food, so unique that you are sure to try dishes you have never even heard of before.  The staple dishes of Sri Lanka include a host of spicy curries, sweet caramelised onion and sour lime flavours.
