Weligama is a *new and updated* modern Sri Lankan cuisine.

Weligama ltd Founded by Emily Dobbs – the first British chef to popularise Sri Lankan food in London, through her pop-up egg hopper stall ‘Weligama’ @weligama_ldn in Druid Street Market (hailed by the Evening Standard as ‘utterly fantastic’).**CLOSED** NOW FIND EMILY AT SUPPER CLUBS AND RESTAURANT TAKEOVERS

She fell in love with Sri Lankan food as a child visiting her uncle who lived there – when the island was in the midst of civil war and her family seemed to be the only tourists. Years later, as a flourishing chef in London, she was determined to bring the food she loved to the city where she lived.

By using seasonal English produce together with the flavours of Sri Lanka. Weligama is unique, delicious, vibrant and fresh. Sri lankan food is naturally healthy, mostly gluten / dairy free due to the heavy use of rice flour and coconut milk / vegan and non vegan friendly- suitable for all
