Sri Lankan Tamil Food - BANANA LEAF MEAL and Lagoon Crabs in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka 5

TRINCOMALEE, SRI LANKA - From Batticaloa, we continued our trip in Sri Lanka up the coast to Trincomalee, a wonderful town known for its beaches, seafood, and lagoons. Some of the best crabs in Sri Lanka come from Trincomalee. Much of the culture and people of Trincomalee are Tamil, and the food and culture reflects that.

King of Crabs - First we went to visit the main crab dealer of Trincomalee where he pulled out some fresh crabs from the lagoon. We ended up buying 3 KG of crab - 5,500 LKR ($30.68) to bring back to the house to cook.

At the house, the family had already prepared a selection of Sri Lankan Tamil food dishes, that were vibrant and ready to be eaten, but they immediately got started cooking the crab. The crab cooking was simple, but heavily relied on their own family blend of masala spice mixture.

All the dishes were served over a banana leaf plate, each with its own color and vibrancy. It was an incredible meal, so much delicious food and such a variety. I loved it. It was a perfect was to spend a day learning about Sri Lankan Tamil food in Trincomalee, Sri Lanka.

Sri Lankans are the *nicest* people I've met. I recall an instance in Toronto Canada when I walked to an eatery joint quite late in the night. The owner was about to pull the shutter down. Seeing me he was ready to pack me a meal with whatever he had left - and the option of ordering dishes of my choice was ruled out, obviously. My then 3 year old daughter just asked me if she could get dosa (a crispy pancake like delicacy). The owner just overheard her request and while I was trying to talk her into why she can't have her choice at that point in time, he simply told me: "No sir, I'll make it for your child. I can't turn down a kid's ask". A man who was about to wind up his business for the day went back and prepared a few dosas for us!
I've had many more instances after that. Very nice people and this video is another example of their hospitality!
