tomorrow evening, mr. alka wants some home-cooking (ie, sri lankan food). he loves string hoppers, especially.
can you recommend a good sri lankan place in manhattan? i only recall two sri lankan restos, but that was a few years back, and i can't recall their names, or which one was better.
can you help us out with recommendations of places, and your favorite dishes there? thanks.
i like sigiri on 1st Ave near 6th St...but it's the only Sri Lankan place i've ever been so I can't attest to its authenticity.
i can attest to its affordability, tastiness and BYOBness, though!
Not an evening place - but the Dosa Man is apparently from Sri Lanka - or his grandmother was - and he offers a lunch that's from his grandma's cooking (or that was my understanding - It was a bunch of spongy "crepes" with what was called a dry sauce (several herbs/spices) and a mint chutney and a cream sauce - I really enjoyed it! SW corner of Washington Square Park by Sullivan - lunchtime but not every day.
I'll dig out his phone number and post it.
