#59 Ruwangi Place

#59 Ruwangi's (sign)#59 Ruwangi Place is a simple wooden hut hidden in the back Streets of AbaY, very near to #58 Rupas.
The most striking impression of this Place is a sign on the table in the front garden:
“Best Arugam Bay Rice & Curry” followed by a very modest: …..I think…

The funny thing is: EVERYBODY agrees!
Even the world’s favorite traveler’s Bible/Koran, the totally-out-of-date-at-time-of-print “Looney Planet” got this one right! For a Change.
And they even listed #59Ruwangi in the ‘old’ 2006 edition. For a change! i think…!

The great cook and friendly landlady, which actually is little Ruwangi’s mother, has a very hard time since husband Samman was sent off to work away from the family home. Playing the single mum role, she really tries her best to keep the family together and earn a little honest income.

The almost impossible happened: In face of maybe 1,000 other R&C (Rice & Curry) competitors around the famous Bay everybody -so far- agrees that she has beaten them all to fame.
By simply producing the VERY Best, VERY cheap, fresh, usually vegetarian RICE & Curry in the entire Bay.

Let’s have YOUR feedback!
Was it really your favourite All-YOU-can-Eat R&C ?
