Lakruwana, a pure Sri Lankan gourmet cuisine is a place where you would feel like a having meal in a restaurant in Sri Lanka.
Pretty touches multiply- exposed thick-wood-beam ceilings, brick walls hung with woven baskets, prints of ancient Sri Lankan caricatures, and purple-and-gold woven-straw utensil holders.
Once seated, you'll find that the graciousness of owner Lakruwana Wijesinghe makes you want to stick around. Repeat visitors come for the traditional, spice-packed meals from the Isle of Gems, like lamprie — basmati rice layered with neat little piles of rich, stewy eggplant, caramelized onions, tomato, cashews, green beans, and potatoes. Lentil soup is nearly dessert like; served in a fired-clay bowl with a charmingly carved wooden spoon, the puréed red legumes turn goldenrod in color and are enriched by sweet coconut milk. Sweet! Everything’s irresistible.
