  1. A five-course Sri Lankan meal? Wow... I have never tried Sri Lankan cuisine before, looks deliciously fiery! ;)

  2. ;-) Leo

    Kenny, wanna try, I think I might wanna go

  3. PS, did you go eventually ? Tell us what you think of Sri Lankan food. I found it very spicy (even for an Indian) when I visited Sri Lanka. But more due to use of lots of spices rather than chillies. I have some fond memories of the food there...


  4. i've tried homemade sri lankan food and they're awesome!
