  • There is also a tradition of eating short-eats, which are delicious snacks like stuffed rolls or little chicken pies.
  • The food in Sri Lanka is spicy and even the locals are known to find it so. If you don’t want spicy food, just ask for “non-spicy” when you order.
  • It is hard to find either pork or beef in traditional restaurants due to the religious reasons. However, you can find a lot of vegetarian restaurants and chicken and seafood is freely available.
  • A traditional Sri Lankan meal in a small local restaurant will cost between 300 and 600 Rupees.
