A perennial favourite, kottu roti is made up of shredded strips of godhamba roti that are stir-fried with vegetables and different kinds of meat or seafood, depending on your preference. The roast chicken cheese kottu is one dish well worth trying.

Achcharu

Sri Lankans love spicy food, even when it comes to fruits! Achcharu is basically half-ripe fruits that have been well mixed with chillier powder, salt, pepper and sometimes vinegar too. Popular fruits used for achcharu include mangoes, pineapple and a quite sour local fruit called ambarella.

Isso Wade

This wonderful deep-fried snack features a freshly fried prawn on top and is very popular. Another variation of this is a wade with a small crab on top instead. Of course to truly savour seafood you need to head to the south coast where places like Pebbles Beach Villa offer some seafood delights.

Samosas
