“Basic local restaurant in the very touristic Ella”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

When travelling i always try to find local eateries because the food is always local, tasty and cheap. However Ella is so touristic that it was hard a local cheap restaurant and i'm happy i've found one!

This is a small restaurant with two tables only located on the Railway Rd linking main street with the railway station. This place is called 'Up country' and there's a small banner with its name.

The restaurant is so basic that there's even no menu, but the food is Great! I haven't tried such delicious rice and curry for 20 days travelling around the country! It's awesome! The price is 250 Rp. per person. It consists of a huge portion of plain rice, 5 side dishes and an omelete. It's hard to eat it all! If 250 Rp. per person is expensive for you, you can ask for a less amount of food and pay less.

Before coming here just make sure you're ok with local cafes and food! This place is for those who wanna get a real taste of Sri Lanka. so be prepared for it.
