Tucked away along the coast, the charming Sri Lankan fishing town of Negombo not only offers an idyllic escape by the sea, but also gives you the chance to sample some of the island’s exotic cuisine. Those in search of a Sri Lanka beach resort in the town from which to set off on a food tour can stay at Jetwing Sea. This luxurious Negombo beach hotel is also home to the Lellama, a restaurant that serves up some delectable seafood this coastal area is famous for.

Dining in Negombo is a truly eclectic affair with choices ranging from spicy curries to a range of favourite international fare. As you would expect from a coastal town, seafood features prominently with lobster, crab and prawn dishes offering aromatic treats for discerning foodies. Several foreign nationals have set up dining establishments here as well and it is not hard to find dishes that remind you of home including British, Italian and German cuisine.
