Remember my previous post about a day in Anuradhapura? This post is continued with the same trip and I thought of sharing my experience with our breakfast.

Now, this post is about a typical Sri Lankan breakfast we had in Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka.

Anuradhapura is an ancient city with a great historical value. There are lots of sites to visit, a day trip is completely not enough.

First we visited Lowamahapaya, a historical place we find before entering to Sri Maha Bodhi tree. After that we visited Sri Maha Bodhi tree and spent some quality time there. We were tired and wanted to find a place for our breakfast. Our team included most of family members including parents. Therefore, we wanted to have a typical Sri Lankan breakfast and found a hotel in the heart of Anuradhapura town.

Okay, now through our breakfast we had in Anuradhapura,I want to share some recommendations for you to try if you visit Sri Lanka someday.

Here are some food we had.

Bread with Dhall curry is a really nice combination for any Sri Lankan. It will be more delicious , if a pol sambola is added. So, we ordered the best combination to try.

String hoppers with dhal curry, potato curry and pol sambola was another combination we tried and this is another great Sri Lankan menu for any Sri Lankan.

Pol sambola is a spicy dish which fresh grated coconut is grounded with red chili, onion and salt. A little bit of lime juice will add more flavor to the dish.

Other than above we ordered a creamy fish curry which is not so spicy! This is known as ‘Malu Kirata’ in Sri Lanka and in this curry, fish is cooked in coconut milk.

Rice and curry is the main food for many Sri Lankans and we had to order few plates to our parents. They enjoyed their meals although the sides served were bit spicy.

After having a good and also heavy breakfast, we started our trip again. We had a plan to visit more religious places and our trip was so enjoyable. Wait for my next article on the same trip together with some more foodie experience. Till that, you may like to read more details and photos of this Sri Lankan breakfast experience in my blog Food Corner.
