The latest offering from Black Sheep Restaurants puts a fun spin on typical dishes from Sri Lanka

Tatler Says

Sri Lankan cuisine is pitifully under-represented in Hong Kong. It’s lighter, more fragrant and less seasoned than Indian food, with coconut milk and coconut oil used rather than ghee or dairy. The best place to discover the difference is at Hotal Colombo, a cheerful “canteen” in the heart of Soho, with chef Gizzy Alesbrook in charge. Acquaint yourself with hoppers (bowl-shaped pancakes made with fermented rice flour), kothu (think bubble and squeak), kari (curries), and sambols —essential side condiments.

Signature Dishes

  • Chicken kari
  • Hopper with kiri hodi, pol sambol and lunu miris
  • Kothu
