Sigiri In The East Village
Posted by:  Holly Alderman
Sunday, May 13, 2012
Tucked amidst the flashing lights and persuasive calls to dine at one of East 6th Street's many Indian restaurants is Sigiri. It is not adorned with Christmas lights and no one pulls you off the street boasting a deal, but Sigiri provides an unparalleled dining experience that is not to be missed. Like its neighbors in the East Village, Sigiri serves South Asian cuisine, but rather than hailing from India, Sigiri's food is from the island nation of Sri Lanka. In a mecca of international eats, it is hard to be totally unique in New York City, but Sigiri pulls it off as a reasonably priced, conveniently located, authentic Sri Lankan eatery on a continent where such places are few and far between. Sri Lankan cuisine as it is served up at Sigiri is not for the faint of the heart (or tastebuds!) It is spicy, spicy, spicy. Not to fear though--Sigiri is BYOB, so make sure to bring a spice fighting alcohol to accompany your meal. If you're looking for a cozy atmosphere with eclectic decor, delicious food, and a unique feel, head on over to Sigiri. You won't be sorry, even if your salivary glands will!
