Sri Lankan Street Food on a Budget (<$10)

Who said that great food has to cost the earth? Sri Lanka proves it wrong! This is the country where not only you will embark on a culinary journey of your lifetime, but also a place where eating out will cost you less than $5, while eating excessively. Don’t fight the temptation – take a break from mild food, book the flights to Sri Lanka, read my latest street food guide at Kat’s blog and enjoy the spice!


Get insured

"It will never happen to me" said every person before it happened to them. Accidents happen at home and abroad. The difference is that they are usually more costly when you're in a foreign country. That's why travelling without insurance is a bad idea. There's just no excuse to put yourself in such a risk.

>>voice from the crowd<< Travel insurance is too expensive!

>>voice of the common sense<< If you can't afford travel insurance then you can't afford to travel.

Don't take chances and get yourself insured now. Check out our budget travel insurance page.

    I want all of it! Especially the curry… I’m a sucker for a good one!

      We love curry too. Take it all, but leave the curry for us ! ;-)

  • Bennett November 1, 2012, 10:47 am

    YUM! That is all I have to say on the matter.

      I know Sarah, but I’m missing Chinese food a lot ;-(

    I have to admit, in the past I always though Sri Lankan food was basically the same as Indian food, but apparently I was very wrong about that. I’ve been hearing so much about how good it is lately and I really want to try it now.

      It’s not exactly the same, but pretty similar. You can still discover new flavours you would not discover in India.

    Mmm! :D I’m all over the curries as well, though I hear they are a gazillion times spicier than Indian curries.

    • Agness November 8, 2012, 8:09 pm

      Yeah, spicy as hell :)

  • Ayngelina November 10, 2012, 11:07 am

    I have never been to Sri Lanka but this food looks amazing.

    • Agness November 10, 2012, 12:16 pm

      How about India? Sri Lankan food is great, super spicy :)

  • Scarlett November 15, 2012, 9:17 am

    This all looks delicious! I could definitely go for a chocolate Roti though! xx

    • Agness November 15, 2012, 10:52 am

      I had a chocolate Roti for breakfast almost every day ;-) So yummy!

  • Anita November 15, 2012, 5:46 pm

    Wow this food looks so delicious! Too bad, that I can’t go to Sri Lanka to just eat diner there :-)

    • Agness November 15, 2012, 5:47 pm

      Why can’t go? There is always a way to go there! :-) Make a plan for the next year :)

  • Andrea November 20, 2012, 1:59 pm

    I’ve never experienced Sri Lankan food before but this all looks delicious. Reminds me of Burmese and Singaporean cuisines a bit.

    • Agness November 21, 2012, 7:22 am

      I never tried neither Burmese nor Singaporean cuisine, but I can’t wait to do it !

  • david February 25, 2013, 12:33 pm

    Oh you forgot to mention ‘kothu’ the national dish of sri lanka

    • Agness February 26, 2013, 9:50 am

      I might have even tried it, but didn’t know the name. Thanks a lot! xx
