The Curry Leaf restaurant in Colorado Springs is tiny, but it’s good. Sri Lankan comfort food turns out to be a cross between Indian and some colonial European influences, and it was comfort-food yummy. A lot of curries with rice – and pastries and flan for desert. The coconut sambol (a salad) was too spicy to gulp down, but I wanted to. Otherwise, the dishes weren’t terribly spicy.
It’s hard to imagine the tens of thousands of people supposedly killed in the class between the Sri Lankan Government and the Tamil Tigers – in a country a quarter the size of Colorado, but there you go.
