Cuisine: Sri Lankan, Street Food
Coconuts have started falling on innocent passers-by in Cardiff, all thanks to The Coconut Tree. Specialising in Sri Lankan street food, it's an experience like no other. Bring your helmet!
Look out for the bright red tuk-tuk parked outside and you're on the money! Like their street-food, their dining area is warm, informal and fun, with an array of benches and bar stools to choose from. Unlike a busy street-stall, it's wonderfully spacious, making it perfect for groups and families to let their hair down.
Guaranteed you will leave this restaurant having tried something new! For something warm and comforting, go for the chicken curry or Jaffna goat curry with potato. Go off-road with the black pork that is slow-cooked in a roasted black spice mix (how mysterious!) for mindblowing flavour or a hot battered spicy cuttlefish. Vegetarians are well looked after with the coconut sambal, pumpkin curry, jack fruit cutlets and fried okra, all of which go nicely with some Sri Lankan fried rice or traditional roti.
Famed for their cocotails (no that's not a typo!), expect your delicious concoction in a fun-loving elephant cup or if you're lucky, it might be on fire! Keep your helmets on for this one.
