So it’s Id-Ul-Alha, or Hadji Festival Day.
We had outside food – Fahim’s mom had arranged it last week or so, I believe, and it was mutton biryani and curries. The chicken biryani we get from The Banana Leaf, a restaurant owned by one of Fahim’s uncles, is way better, but that’s only because theirs is pretty much the best anywhere. Oh my!
Banana Leaf Restaurant
Hours 11 AM – 10 pm
No 86, Galle Road, Colombo 04
If you’re in Colombo and want excellent food for cheap, go there. Seriously. Chicken Buryani, enough to stuff Fahim, for Rs. 140, or about $1.40 US.
Although right now, it’s closed – for renovations, we think. We hope.
