Sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. Also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller. Trucks in Kandy also sell the so called "soy ice cream", in smaller portions, though the ice cream at the Soya Centre is the tastiest and has the best quality.

Their Soya Rotee Roll is my favorite, and probably the spiciest fast food you can find in Kandy.

Excellent vegan food for low prices. It's more an imbiss than a real restaurant. Nice view to the busy road. Located at YMCA on the same level.

Great cheap soft serve soya ice cream. Not the most exciting of places but grab a cone and sit on the covered balcony to escape the heat!

55 lkr per cone - what a bargain for a soya ice cream. Setting us basic but functional - staff very friendly. Well recommended
