Culinary Trails in Kandy

Back Back

Kandy, the hill capital of the island, is also the last kingdom of Sri Lanka’s royal history. Blessed with fertile soils and nature’s goodness, the varied Kandyan cuisines are just as bountiful. A tapestry of cultural diversity, the cuisine of the hill country is inspired by multi-cultural twists. Prepared using the freshest and nutritious ingredients from the island, Kandyan dishes are wholesome and delicious.

Experience Overview

Walk the streets of Kandy and glimpse its colonial elegance set against a lush green backdrop. First, stop by a local eatery that offers an array of vegan dishes, which are the staples of the Sinhalese community in Kandy. The dishes are inspired by the wholesome vegetables and fruits of the island as well as Kandy’s culinary heritage. Next, visit a nearby restaurant to savor flavorsome dishes made by Tamil households in Kandy. Greatly enjoyed and loved by many, Tamil cuisine is a delectable fusion of rich flavors. Back on the road, get a taste of Kandy’s street food scene from pickles to cassava chips to short-eats and kottu. The street food experience, however, is based on availability as street food is provided by street vendors and food carts wheeling around the city. Later, drop in at a local food stall that coaxes a world of flavors from the most humble soybean. Enjoy a range of soy based food items including snacks, milk and even ice-cream. Finally, wrap up your Kandyan food trail by treating yourself to a fresh salad of your liking at a chic café in Kandy. You also have the option of enjoying a pint of beer in a more laidback atmosphere

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
