WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Others -

For an au­then­tic ex­pe­ri­ence of sugar and spice and all things nice, make a bee­line to this charm­ing Sri Lankan restau­rant.

A sam­pling of the mixed plat­ter of cut­lets is a good peek into what’s to come, and fea­tures lit­tle parcels of meat, veg­eta­bles and spices that are breaded and deep-fried to crunchy per­fec­tion.

On the chef’s rec­om­men­da­tion is the mouth-wa­ter­ing mut­ton paal poriyal, fea­tur­ing ten­der mut­ton slow-cooked in a del­i­cate blend of au­then­tic Sri Lankan spices with a hint of chilli. The menu also of­fers a good range of seafood with a va­ri­ety of cook­ing styles, with the fish curry a star pick. Thick pieces of Span­ish mack­erel pro­vide meat to the silky smooth gravy. The crab meat Jaffna curry is an aro­matic treat fea­tur­ing gen­er­ous amounts of crab meat that give each spoon­ful plenty of sub­stance and flavour. A good com­pan­ion to these cur­ries and heav­ily sea­soned meats is the re­fresh­ing, salad-like egg­plant sam­bal.

Vati­lap­pam, an au­then­tic Sri Lankan dessert of sweet co­conut pud­ding rich in dessert spices and nuts makes for a good end­ing to the meal.
