Monday on No Reservations - Sri Lanka

If you're like me and know next to nothing about Sri Lanka, its cuisine, its people, its culture, then the next episode of No Reservations will be an eye-opener. According to Travel Channel, Tony will be shown the Sri Lankan culture and cuisine, cuisine influenced by Portuguese, Dutch, British, Indian, Arab, Malay and Moor traders.

While in Colombo, Tony will samplig popular street foods, rides in a tri-shaw, samples lampreis, a local delicacy, and eats a heaping pile of kotu roti. His journey continues onto the smaller seaside village of Seenigama and speaks to villagers about how they rebuilt their town after the devastating tsunami. Once the rebuilding was complete, the unity of the townsfolk led to other projects, like the creation of a culinary school to help Sri Lankan’s learn to properly prepare local dishes. How cool is that?

So don't miss this episode on Monday, March 2 at 10pm EST on the Travel Channel.

Have a terrific weekend!
