Feasting at the Sri Lankan Buddhist Vihara

By poptop - 23 April 2013 3

Sri Lanka Hoppers

Down near the newish Kambah Superschool there is an almost secret commercial, community and religious centre, with temples and medical services and a fitness center.

On Saturday, the Sri Lanka Buddhist Vihara opened its gates for one of its regular Food Festivals. The air was full of spicy scents and the sense of purpose from the small but constant stream of devotees of Sri Lankan food.

Forswearing the very appealing roti, samosa and hoppers, I opted for the vegetarian curry plate and a mug of the [free] Ceylonese tea. It was a very satisfactory lunch, a snip at $8 and left me with the warm glow of chilli and sharing food with some lovely people.

Ohhhhhh ! I just love those Hopppeerss .

Was it only on that particular Saturday ? Any idea where else can we get a hopper in Canberra ?

London Grill – the coffee take out branch of Banana Leaf might still do their Friday night Hopper specials. They were always dependent on one particular lady who came in to do them.

Be warned I have not checked them out for over a year things might have changed.

@ zllauh – I think it is on monthly, but I tend to find out from their roadside signs.

The flyer they handed to me advised that their Vesak Celebrations will be on Saturday 11 May 2013 from 5.30pm onwards (30 Jenke Cirt, Kambah). I am certainly hoping food will be on offer as I want to try the hoppers.

I will post the event when I have more info
