Today I visited the Sri Lankan restaurant San Rasa (226 Bay Street, Tompkinsville, 718.420.0027) for their Sunday, all-you-can-eat $11 buffet. The restaurant is a short walk from the ferry so it is easily accessible to visitors from the other boroughs.
The buffet is filled with traditional Sri Lankan cuisine: curry chicken, oxtail, curried kingfish, eggplant, sweet green beans, rice noodles, yellow rice with cinnamon, hot onion-chili potatoes, and much much more.
A delicious mango lassa and mango mousse rounded out the meal and helped to cut the hot spices.
I was inspired to check out this place after reading an article in the NY Times last week highlighting the new ethnic restaurants on the Island.
