Popular dishes in Galle, Sri-lanka

  • Lamprais
    Lamprais is a combination of a special curry, rice and meatballs, which actually origins from the Netherlands. The meatballs are actually “frikkadels”, which is a meatball containing both meat and mashed potato. This is then all wrapped in a banana-lead and baked.
  • Vegan Kottu
    Kottu is the fastfood of Sri Lanka. Its taste is irresistible. The main ingredients of this dish are fried paratha-bread, various spices and a selection of all kinds of meat or vegetarian ingredients. So whenever you eat meat or not, this is a dish you should try.
  • Kochchi Sambola
    This is an exotic recipe with coconut. And it’s hot. Although it depends on the cook, this little guy might result in your mouth feeling like a volcano eruption. That’s because of the chili peppers that are a key ingredient in this dish. Combined with Tapioca, this is a sensation of sweet and hot.

Acropolis Skip the Line & Hidden Gems Tour

Costa was very nice and knowledgeable. We enjoyed our visit with him and clearly left it knowing more. Contrary to many guides we saw we just told myths stories, Kosta knew a lot about actual life in Ancient Athens, religion, architecture, etc. We especially liked the visit of the Acropolis museum and really feel we couldn't have made sense of it without him.
The only downside was that the visit of the Acropolis began at 8am, at the door opening, and we wished we went directly up to the Acropolis to take advantage of the absence of crowd instead of spending time downhill first.

Athens Gods, Myths and Legends Tour

Irini was nice, friendly and knowledgeable about the history of the town and you can tell that she's passionate about what she's doing. The tour ended up being 2 hrs instead of three, but aside from that we had a great time and learned a lot from her!
