Week 9 : Sigiriya (Sri Lanka)

This week we had another guest diner.  Richard’s little sister Kat was visiting from Glasgow and we needed to find somewhere nice and warm and close by on a cold and rainy night. Kat’s boyfriend is from Sri Lanka so when we suggested going to Sigiriya, a Sri Lankan restaurant in Friedrichshain (we have moved flats since last post) she was excited as there are no Sri Lankan places back home. Kat has visited Sri Lanka herself and is regularly being treated to delicious home cooked Sri Lankan food by her boyfriend’s family – but she stipulated one condition : don’t tell Rob! He’d be very jealous.

This was my second visit here this week. The first time was with a big group so I decided not to count it as my cuisine of the week as I was a bit drunk and too busy chattering away to blog. The food was so good though that we went back two days later.

All the food was really tasty especially the hoppa which are tasty little pancakes with various fillings. The spicing was very good so Richard was happy and Kat confirmed that what we ate was indeed authentic and a good measure of this cuisine. Prices are decent at about 8-10 euros a main course which if ordered with a shared bhatura (remember them from previous blog?) you have got yourself a very filling delicious meal.
