Let’s talk about the food and the drinks in Sri Lanka! 🍽☕️
I usually don’t take photos of food and I don’t enjoy eating, as much as I used to have, while travelling because I have coeliac. Since the diagnosis, I have problems with finding places that serve gluten free food and most of the time I end up sticking to just two or three different meals that I find safe. Also, I can’t eat street food so restaurants are my only option. That happend in Sri Lanka also and, funny, but we ended up eating in more western-like restaurants because it was hard to find gluten free traditional Sri Lankan food.
Cafe Chill in Ella has few gluten free options, including the traditional lamprais (I totally recommend it!). In O’Mirissa Cafe in Mirissa I ate a seafood risotto, lamprais and tuna steak. Mahi Mahi has great shrimps with potatoes, salad and rice and crab curry. If you have the same problem like me, feel free to ask me for more information!
