Review: A LI YAA Sri Lankan Cuisine x The ENTERTAINER  


Are you familiar or craving for Sri Lankan cuisine? If you like spicy food like me then this cuisine will fit in nicely although they also have other non-spicy and also vegetarian dishes. Recently we had dinner at A LI YAA Island Restaurant & Bar using The Entertainer App. The restaurant is located in bustling hub of Damansara Heights. A LI YAA is a Sri Lankan fine dining restaurant with it being one of the largest single malt whiskey collections in Malaysia.

A LI YAA is known for their witty and creative dishes cooked with spices. As for me Sri Lankan curries are unlike Indian curries because they are lighter and more heavily spiced although they might look the same. A wide range of menu from poultry, mutton, beef, seafood, vegetables, bread, rice and Sri Lankan Crab, A LI YAA has got it covered.

Sri Lankan Sambal Set

Sri Lankan Sambal Set

I like this addictive Sri Lankan Sambal Set appetizer, the crispy chips that come with 4 types of sambal such as Katta Sambal, Seeni Sanmab, Pol Sambal, and Karupillay Sambal. Each of the sambal has unique taste and flavour to it. It goes well with beer and drink too.

Main Course

String Hopper Kothu

String Hopper Kothu

Must Try! This is Sri Lankan Specialty, it is prepared from strings of unprocessed rice flour dough squeezed through a sieve into small oven trays, which are then steamed to perfection. It like rice vermicelli but the texture is softer and fluffier. You can choose either String Hopper Kothu Chicken or String Hopper Kothu Seafood. Eat it with curry, yummss!

Mutton Paal Poriyal

Mutton Paal Poriyal

Must Try! if you are lamb lovers. Mutton Paal Poriyal is slow-cooked tender lamb in devil aromatic spices. For this dish, the marination and spices are bold and intense, it might numbed your tongue. I like to eat it with Plain String Hopper and Plain Doosara Roti compared to rice.

Jaffna Prawn Curry

Jaffna Prawn Curry

Jaffna Prawn Curry spiciness is moderate and mild. The curry is perfect with rice, string hopper and roti. Marinated prawn cooked with a blend of traditional spices.

Fish Sothi

Fish Sothi

This creamy curry with mild spiciness and taste is suitable for all even children. Fish Sothi is cooked in coconut milk, lemongrass, garlic, shallot and curry leaves as you savour the creamy curry.

Devilled Chicken

Devilled Chicken

This Devilled Chicken spiciness is moderate and taste slightly sweet which is suitable for most. The chicken is marinated and tossed in a stock of spice, sweet tomatoes, sautéed onions and capsicum.

Plain String Hopper & Plain Doosara Roti

Plain String Hopper & Plain Doosara Roti

Plain Doosara Roti is the pan-grilled flat bread with grated coconut, onions and mild chili. I like it with Mutton Paal Poriyal or dipped it in Devilled Chicken gravy. Or you can eat with Brinjol Moju and Pineapple Curry.

Sri Lankan Crab (Colombo Style)

Sri Lankan Crab (Colombo Style)

Must Try! This is what we are waiting for! As you know Sri Lanka crab is very well known among seafood lovers. Here come our Sri Lankan Crab in Colombo Style, yes it’s spicy, intense and flavourful. For those who like spicy crab this is so syiok but for those who can’t take that spicy you can choose Jaffna Style Crab which is moderate spicy and taste. The Colombo style crab is my pick.

You can choose to dine in A LI YAA’s restaurant, or in the comfort of your home or at any of your chosen venue. A LI YAA provides attractive packages for corporate and personal events also. Ala carte menu and set menus are available for orders.

A LI YAA will be hosting a Jaffna Food Festival (Northern Sri Lankan Food) to celebrate their 10 year anniversary. The event will be from October 30th to November 2nd, 2017. There will be over 100 dishes on buffet style with seating for Lunch and Dinner. A special guest will be flying from Sri Lanka for the event price per person will be RM 148++.
