Min Han

14, Deanstone Place, Colombo 03

Min Han (or Ming Han) is one of our favorite Chinese restaurants. It's cheap, super tasty and the waiter Wijapayala orders for you.




You need to befriend Wijayapala. To do this, you must go there once by yourself at lunch time, by noon. Order a beer and ask him for the menu. Tell him you want one of the more authentic sounding dishes, and he will deny you. Then, ask him to suggest something. Go with it in order to establish trust. Once he knows you trust him, he is more likely to let you get adventurous. Over the years, here are the dishes he's allowed me to try: Beef Noodle Soup, Beansprout and Tofu, Hot Garlic Fish Fillet, Pork Belly with Black Fungus, Seafood Fried Noodles and Pork Dumplings. I'm still waiting for the day he let's me order a whole fish with all the sides their Chinese customers order. Fingers crossed!

On Duplication Road, past Manhattan Fish Market, turn right at the first road after Bars Cafe. Min Han is in a tiny house on the left side of the lane.
