A small, stylish no-bookings joint in Soho, serving traditional Sri Lankan street food. Leave your number and go get a drink in some bar close by. It will take a couple of hours or more before you get your craved spot at Hoppers but the wait is totally worth.
Place your order and your table will quickly be filled with a plethora of small dishes: the bone marrow, covered by an exceptional spiced sauce is definitely worth giving a try, the Calamari are not to be missed and the Short Rib Buriani is excellent, but the star of the menu is the dish from which the restaurant takes its name: the hopper, a crispy bowl-shaped pancake made from rice flour and coconut milk, traditionally served with a whole egg baked into the base. You can choose several curries to go with it, the black pork deserving a special mention, all surprising and delicious.

Careful with the green chilli. They. Are. Hot.
