Taste me

Spice Inn

Hi,

Bäckerei Epting in Elsässerstrasse 136 4056 Basel does good Sri Lankan food. Don't let the name fool you, it is a bakery / restaurant

There is one just under the Starbucks SBB that's the underground cocky park you enter near Starbucks. I think it's caiied city bar. Very delicious Sri Lankan food eat in or take away.

Re: Sri Lankan food in Basel

Could you explain to me what is typical Sri Lankan food, and what is the difference with Indian food ? Because I have only eaten Indian food so far. Perhaps I could give the City Bar a try.

Re: Sri Lankan food in Basel

Hi kittekat,

Sri Lankan food is similar to south Indian food. Some dishes are peculiar to Sri Lanka, however, such as the kothu roti.

Most Indian restaurants in the West serve north Indian food.

Re: Sri Lankan food in Basel

Thank you. Do you know about typical ingredients, is it more or less spicy than northern Indian food, or is the difference not so big ?

Hi kittekat,

In my experience it is less spicy than north Indian food, but you can always ask to turn it up or down. In terms of ingredients, it depends on the dish I suppose. This could be a starting point if you want to learn more:

I finally went to Bäckerei Epting. For a long time I thought it was closed. It seems to me to be open only at lunch time on workdays. They serve decent Sri Lankan food for 16.50 CHF, with the twist that you can replenish your dish as much as you want until you are full or more.

That's a good place. Here's a Tages Woche article about them:

http://www.tageswoche.ch/de/2013_36/leben/576392/

There's also a tiny Sri Lankan takeaway/restaurant at the Bahnhof in the underpass where the bicycles are parked. (It's very close to the
Elisabethenanlage exit.)
