What you can expect

Explore the most delicious local foods on a private tour that will take you through the best flavors in Colombo. Go truly local!
I will only take you to food vendors frequented by the locals and who still do traditional and special recipes as they were passed from generation to generation.

Try some of the freshest seafood in Sri Lanka that most travelers don't know but it is a big thing in the country and we are really proud of it. Or how about a vegetarian treat that you can mix up with a combo of delicious curry with rice.

After a little bit of eating, take a break for a cup of traditional Sri Lankan tea. Then, move on to try the famous Sri Lankan Hoppers, a range of dishes based on a fermented batter, usually made of rice flour and coconut milk with spices. It's delicious!

Time to try some yummy samosas and the best Kottu in Sri Lankan! The kottu is a spicy stir-fry of roti with vegetable. And how could I forget about the traditional salad called Achcharu, it definitely will be a part of your food journey in Colombo!

And of course, enjoy traditional sweets and a refreshing fruit juice. Now your sweet tooth is satisfied!

This is not only about food, you will also discover the city and I will tell you interesting local stories along the way for a complete private experience in the city.
