Green Cabin information
This local institution is famous for baked goods and an inexpensive array of rice and curry variations, all served in a leafy dining area. The lunchtime vegetarian buffet (Rs 280) is excellent value – the mango curry, if it’s on, is very good.
For a snack try the short meals from the bakery area such as the deep-fried peppers. At breakfast, hope they have string hoppers (pancake tangles of steamed noodles).
