Little Sri Lanka on Staten Island

img_4375.jpgOne of our last meals of 2007 was on Staten Island on Victory Blvd where there is a Sri Lankan contingent. Wan and I biked there from Brooklyn and when we arrived at New Asha Restaurant we were ready for some serious eating. Unfortunately, South Indian goodies like Iddly and Dosa would not be ready until the evening, so we opted for a tasting of all the vegetarian curries with rice. We got a heaping plate of a squash stew, and okra curry and a perfectly spiced and nourishing dahl. It was just what we needed for refueling our journey back home.

Since I’m a sucker for puns, I needed a picture of this Sri Lankan/Indo/Pak/Mexicanconvenience store.
