Vegan food guide Sri Lanka

The vegan options in Sri Lanka are plentiful, as long as you like curry! But don’t expect the traditional British takeaway curry as the food in Sri Lanka is influenced from southern India and is a lot lighter and fresher.

Expect lots of coconut curries, dhals, rice and rotis. Street food is the best so make sure you try hoppers (think pancakes shaped as a bowl), string hoppers and Kottu. And of course there is an abundance of fresh fruit and vegetables whereever you go including red bananas and many types of coconut. You definitely have to drink straight from a King Coconut!

And don’t forget Lion Beer.
