Hopper Hut specializes in Sri Lankan Tamil Cuisine of the fiery kind.
You enter a shop that looks like a take out with a counter, You go
into the dining room from the side. There is also an entrance from the
back which might be considered by the restaurant as a front entrance,
The dining room as about 10 tables with modest plastic table covers
with floral designs.
You have the standard Sri Lankan fare, the Kutthu Rottis(Devilled
Cut up Rotis mixed with your choice of meats,chicken,fish and
vegetables sauteed in Hot and fiery concoction), String and Plain
Hoppers(rice cakes with egg both plain and stringed with a mild sweet
cocout milk accompaniment, Toungue scalding chilli Hot curries of
different varieties etc. These are all good.
But their Piece de Resistance, is their Lampreis dishes: The Sri
Lankan Tamils also call these dishes Kattu Shoru( or 'Tied Up' Rice)
where a kind of Biriyani, that is cooked rice in a scalding chilli hot
sambhal sauce with three seperately prepared vegetable of like hotness
along with a side dish of Karuvadu(or dried fish) and your choice of
meat, chicken,fish or vegetable) are all tied together in a large
bannana leaf and then steamed. These dishes come to the table piping
hot tied in thick wrapping paper. You untie the paper wrapping and
then unravel the plaintain leaves and you are faced with a generous
portion of the steaming contents. One dish could suffice for two
persons with average appetites. Desserts and drinks are nothing
special. But Hopper Hut is most kind to the wallet. A $40-$45 bill for
a dinner party of five.
Faint hearts with delicate palates will find Hopper Hut much too
overwhelming, but to a practiced hand at hot food, this restaurant is
worth driving a long distances to. Go to it !
