Sigiri review image

Sigiri is a cash-only Sri Lankan spot in the East Village. It’s about the size of a railroad apartment, but instead of a futon and some foldable chairs, it’s filled with dates and small groups eating very good rice dishes, curry, and noodles. Entrees like the string hopper kotthu (rice noodles with stir- fried meat and vegetables) and the crab fried rice are enough food for two. You can order for takeout, but this place is BYOB, so keep it in mind when you want to eat and drink affordably in a space that’s not your apartment.
