$10 for $20 Worth of Sri Lankan Fare

Chefs whip up a menu of traditional Sri Lankan and South Indian dishes, such as vegetable curries ($5.99), crepe-like seafood masala dosas ($9.99), egg rottis ($7.99 for two), fish puttu ($12.99), and kiri pani, a Sri Lankan dessert of yogourt with palm syrup ($3.99).

JR Taste of Ceylon

The kitchen at JR Taste of Ceylon is awash in an olfactory symphony of fragrant spices, the simmering warmth of hot red peppers tempered by the sweetness of ginger and the gentle perfume of cardamom. Employing the traditional Sri Lankan practice of fast roasting spices before grinding them, chefs use these rich seasonings to coax forth the nuanced flavours of Sri Lankan and South Indian cuisine. They carefully steam black lentil idli cakes and bake batches of rice shrouded in banana leaves to create meaty lamprias. Though many menu items feature tender beef, mutton, or fish, chefs furnish vegetarian diners with rice- and lentil-based dosa crepes with veggies, sambar, and chutney.

After placing the finishing touches on each dish, chefs dispatch them to tables where diners partake in family-style dining by scooping servings onto their own plate and passive-aggressively asking their sibling to pass the salt. While diners are welcome to use cutlery, they can also adhere to Sri Lankan customs by eating with only their right hand.

Customer Reviews

Great food.

Appum on Tuesdays is good. Sri Lankan fried rice, string hoppers with mutton, roti kotthu were great as well. Coconut Sambal with the dishes was a great additive.
