The guy working there was bit shy but extremely polite, they cook just next to the tables so you can see even how are they preparing your food. Unlike other restaurants in Lanka it took just 15 minutes for our order to get served. you won’t get much of varieties other and rice, noodles and some curries but whatever they have is worth to try. We ordered some veg fried rice, veg noodles and varieties of tea. Everything was so delicious and worth a clap. It was extremely value for money as well. 1 veg fried rice, 1 veg noodles, 5 tea, 2 coke and 1 curd costed just for 550 Sri Lankan rupees almost 50% cheaper compare to our Hotel Restaurant. So next time when you are in Haputale you know where to eat, Risara Bakery -Best food you can buy in Haputale
Haputala is a small lovely village near to more popular Horton Plains. It serves as a base for people visiting to Horton plains and have many options to stay but very limited options to eat. Hotel restaurants are so expensive for no reason. during our recent trip to Haputale we came across a nice place to eat in Haputale. First day we ate at our hotel Sea Lak views and the food was just ok by taste and not value for money. Next day we explored the small bazaar area and came across a small bakery called Risara. As many guide books and online travel forums suggest that the best and most value for money place to have your food in Sri Lanka is to find the place where locals eat. Risara bakery is something similar and run by some local Muslims, expert in chicken curries and biryanis. It’s just next to the bus stand in Haputala and I guess only independent restaurant separated from local hotels. its a very basic place and have small place to sit at the first floor, has very friendly people who run it.
