Island Flavours: Sambol Sri Lankan KitchenSeptember 18, 2015
The use of freshly roasted and ground spices is one of the best ways to infuse flavour into a dish. That's exactly what the cook at Edmonton's latest Sri Lankan restaurant does to bring dishes to life.

Our evening started with an order of Fried fish Rolls ($5/3), where a mixture of tuna, potato and spices are deep fried and served with a side of hot sauce. They make look boring, but the thin, crispy exterior breaks into the smooth blend of ingredients, giving contrast in each bite. I probably would have eaten all three if I could!
Assembling the String Hoppers
While Edmonton is a multicultural city, it has quite a small Sri Lankan population so I'm glad that Sambol has opened up it's doors to share traditional dishes with Edmontonians willing to try something new. The dishes are full of flavour and prices are very affordable, making it an easy choice for lunch or dinner if you're in the area. I'm already itching to go back, and can't wait to eat my way around the menu. Stop by if you have a chance and let me know what you think!
