Lellama (Negombo fish market)
I had a most unusual experience during my stay in Negombo. I was taken on a tour of the local seafood market called the ‘Lellama’. It was like walking a seafood treasure trove. The absolute variety and freshness of the fish, shrimp, prawns and crabs was fantastic.
I actually got to select my dinner and then received a lesson in cooking from the chef as I helped him prepare it.
Then came the best part. I got to enjoy what we cooked, right there on the beach, with nothing but the wind and the sea for company.
