Nayomi’s Family Restaurant in Negombo

This family restaurant is on Colombo Road in Negombo and offering Sri Lankan food. They have only a limited number of choices (chicken / fish / some vegetable curries). There were also a small selection of Chinese dishes as well as buriyani.


We had chicken and vegetable curries.


They also have a bakery and offer fish buns, pastries and cakes. At the restaurant, they offered coffee and I ordered a cappuccino.


The place is fairly clean and spacious.

Some of My Favourite Sri Lankan Food

Sri Lankan cuisine mainly consists of boiled or steamed rice served with curry. This usually consists of a “main curry” of fish, chicken, pork or mutton (typically goat), as well as several other curries made with vegetables, fruits and lentils.

String Hoppers is another food native to Sri Lanka, served mainly for breakfast or dinner and often accompanied by a mix of red onions and spices.

Hoppers are made from a fermented batter of  rice flour and coconut milk.

Red Lentils with coconut Milk – Sri Lankan Parippu. If there’s one dish that is truly Sri Lankan, it would be the Parippu curry.
