Spicy Lanka — Located along Hillside Avenue’s restaurant row in downtown Jamaica, this rare Sri Lankan treats the cuisine from a halal perspective. The prices are very reasonable, too, considering that the humongous entrees easily feed two. One dish not to be missed is kothu roti, a pyramid fashioned from torn-up shreds of flatbread tossed with slivered vegetables and a main ingredient that runs to egg, chicken, mutton, shrimp, or kingfish. The dish originated in the north of the teardrop-shaped island, once the colony of Ceylon, and the ripped roti will remind you of noodles. Featuring actual noodles, string hoppers are another prize main course: coiled vermicelli that can be matched with any number of curries and chutneys.
