With Sri Lankan food riding a mini wave in Melbourne over the past few years, it has become harder to discern bona fide nana-style joints from among the group of slightly hipper, perhaps slightly less authentic eateries. The locals of Glenroy know, however, that they have a bastion of traditional, unadulterated and unornamented Sri Lankan food with Chef Lanka on Wheatsheaf Road. This place is where you can try the real deal, dished up in a humble but homely setting where your food always comes with a smile. Sri Lankan food has many characteristic traits distinct from other South Asian cuisine, and if you’re new to the genre we recommend Chef Lanka’s delicious jackfruit curry, of course accompanied by the staple wambatu moju eggplant pickle.
