Experience Traditional Sri Lankan Cuisine with a Colombo Local in his Home

By Traveling Spoon
Enjoy a private and authentic Sri Lankan meal with your host Bandu in his home. This is a perfect experience for anyone looking to connect with local culture over food. Bandu is a kind and friendly host, a retired IT professional who has lived overseas for over 35 years. He learned to cook from his mother and has been cooking traditional, home style Sri Lankan food for over 40 years. He initially learned to cook for survival as a young professional and now is extremely passionate about cooking for friends. Apart from cooking, Bandu likes traveling, hiking and swimming. He has traveled to over 35 countries and has even learned to cook local food in a few of them. When asked why he would like to be a host, Bandu says, “this is a great opportunity to learn about other cultures and meet like-minded people.”
