Hotel Jaffna

What Jaffna people eat in the evening when they are on outing?

People of Jaffna and their taste of food are far different from the other people living in this island. They prefer their food dishes to be hot and added with extra chili powder and spices while they like to have ice cream and other sweet deserts to be served on the table. If you see one family going on outing on a typical Sunday evening, they will directly go in to ice cream parlors (ice cream shops like the one as Rio) and will order the heaviest Chocolate sundae that to be added with more sweet by the mixed ingredients and along with that they will order hot Chinese rolls stuffed with mutton curry or potato curry. And there will be a small plate for each person, for them to put chili sauce in the dish and to dip and bite the Chinese rolls.

There after they will care for the sweetest ice creams that they have ordered. There are plenty of varieties of ice creams with many kinds of flavors available in the shops of Jaffna. Most of these popular ice cream shops are located in the Jaffna town and Nallur area. They used to be fully crowded on school holiday times, Saturdays, Sundays and Nallur annual festival time.

The Ice cream shops in the Nallur area used to be packed with people during the festival season every year. These shops are decorated with colorful electric bulbs and mirrors all around to make you feel that you are in a special area to enjoy your desert. These places used to be so silent expect the servers voices as the visitors used to concentrate on their Chinese rolls and ice cream cups. Also as an exception these ice cream shops serve hot Nescafe in plastic cups where this milk coffee is made with vending machines.

So if you visit Jaffna town in the future mingle with Jaffna people in these ice cream shops and enjoy the ice cream and the atmosphere with them. If you are a foreigner they may give much attention to you but if you talk with them, you will find them to be the friendliest people in the world. Mean while don't miss the Jaffna ice cream too.
