Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations - Sri Lanka

In tonight’s episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, Tony travels to the island county of Sri Lanka to explore its unique South Asian culture and cuisine. Portuguese, Dutch, British, Indian, Arab, Malay and Moor traders have all contributed to the diversity of Sri Lankan food. While in Colombo, Tony enjoys popular street foods, rides in a tri-shaw, samples lampreys (a local delicacy), and eats a heaping pile of kotu roti. See kotu roti being made in the video clip below from tonight’s episode of No Reservations:

Bourdain’s journey doesn’t stop there though. He continues onto the smaller seaside village of Seenigama and speaks to villagers about how they rebuilt their town after 2004’s devastating tsunami. Once the rebuilding was complete, the unity of the townsfolk led to other projects, like the creation of a culinary school to help Sri Lankan’s learn to properly prepare local dishes. It sounds like tonight’s episode of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations should be a good one!

Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations airs every Monday night at 10/9c on the Travel Channel.
