Mankulam, Sri Lanka
Tel: 021 3 204686

Located on A9 just north of Mankulam, Taste of Vanni restaurant is an innovative social enterprise run by Vanni Resource Self Development Organization Guaranteed Ltd. (VaReSDO Gte. Ltd.). It was started in 2014 by the members of Mankulam Women’s Rural Development Society (MWRDS) with the support of local and international donors including USAID BIZ+. The restaurant provides quality local food, hygienic toilet facilities and handicraft products. The social objective of the business venture is to provide long lasting livelihood solution to the members of the community including women affected by the conflict. Taste of Vanni took part in LSV’s Women Social Enterprise Incubator & Accelerator Programme in 2015-2016.

Extra-ordinary place with Local Dishes

The location is good for a nice break while driving either way. The washrooms are clean and handy with good water facilities. The ladies are with smiles when welcoming and behave in a decent manner. Fruit extracts prove very useful and tasty especially if someone is really tired after a long journey. Drinking a glass of juice vibrates the energy and brings back what is lost. The foods give the true local smell with delicious and spicy curries. For eating on the way there are a number of domestic snacks and I have appreciated the one made of gingerly which may be called “gingerly ball” sweetened with jaggery. There are local palmyra handicraft items too for souvenir and making gifts at a nominal price. Overall one could enjoy this innovative and nice location in Mankulam which is run by “women only”.
