Sigiri: Sri Lankan fun

Delicious and different. This little second floor spot was not too crowded around 7 on a week night, no wait for us, though it filled up and I am sure it gets packed on weekends. No corkage fee for byob and the Spanish wine store to the left offers very reasonable options and they know exactly what will go with the food of the restaurant. The Kotthu Roti was extremely addictive with flavors and ingredients that tasted familiar but presented uniquely. Savory fried rice type of flavors SO GOOD. When I come back this needs to be ordered again. We tried the string hoppers as well which came in the form noodley things that were to be mixed with sauce; again, familiar but different. Our waitress recommended the black curry as something unique to Sri Lankan cuisine and we enjoyed that, though most memorable was certainly the roti dish.
