Good Mutton Kothu Rotti- Gana Cafe Wembley
When I'm in Wembley normally head over to Sarvana Bhavan and good though it is you can only eat so much poori masala.
Next door is a Sri Lankan and South Indian Place Ganda Cafe and Restaurant.
Very much a cafe in terms of decor and feel but I liked it.
I started with dhal vadai. A very crisp outer and the inside was a little dry as they's obviously been made some time before.The flavour though was excellent and the large slivers of roasted chillis and the whole fennel seeds more than made up for the dryness. Came with a nice coconut and green chilli chutney.
The kottu when it it appeared was served in a deceptively small bowl and could have easily served three people. It had a good sticky appearance but the rotti pieces had kept their texture. The spicing was good with abundant slices of fresh green chillis. The mutton -which I had assumed would be goat but actually turned out to be lamb was good and tender. I have tried a number versions of this dish at various places but this has been my favourite so far.
On a side note they had egg hoppers on the menu. I have seen string hoppers many times but never egg hoppers. Will have to return to try more of the menu.

First had kottu roti in Sri Lanka. Still get slightly wistful hearing the sound of kottu being chopped or hearing Hotel California being played - heard it all the time in Sri Lanka for some reason. If you do go to Sri Lanka and go to Kandy try the Kandy Musilm Hotel.for kottu.
Also posted a bit more advice a while back.
