Typical local snack
You haven’t been to Pettah if you haven’t tried traditional snacks at any of the ‘gram’ stores. Here you buy everything ‘by the gram’. Some local favourites include fried manioc chips or murukku, which are fried spiral like crunchy bites with a spicy kick. Another staple finger food is ‘the mixture’, an assortment of fried murrukku, leaves, peas and many other more delights to surprise your taste buds.
What to buy?
Sample any of the fried, spicy delights from the displays and pick your favourite in any quantity you prefer, by weighing it on a little scale on the counter. A 100g of any of the bites should come up to about 60lkr.
