Though the food is relatively tasty and cooked under somewhat hygienic conditions it does not warrant them to charge such high prices.. imagine paying Rs 60/- for a Chinese Roll...Rs160/- for a Rotti.. They are charging 5 Star Prices.. for apparently no reason... there is...More

Description
Sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. Also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller. Trucks in Kandy also sell the so called "soy ice cream", in smaller portions, though the ice cream at the Soya Centre is the tastiest and has the best quality.
