Coconut milk is a main ingredient in Sri Lanka Food, the triangle shaped milk rice & the rectangle-shaped brown rice milk rice tasted very much like our local nasi lemak with very strong coconut milk flavour. The herbal mint soup tasted much like the Lei-cha.
Like India, to cater for Chinese customers, they like to cook stir-fry Chinese style noodles and meehoon in this instance, the small bitter-gourd with hollow in centre and mild salad cream gravy appear quite often in our menu. The potatoes were nice though much preferred the Marsala potato tried in India.
Possible culprits for my bad cough: the crispy crackers and the ice-cream (double portion! Dana by an auntie) with local fruits: papaya, bananas and pineapples are our favourite starter & dessert. :-)
