At this Staten Island temple of Sri Lankan cuisine—outfitted with Buddha statues and colorful stone walls—you can get Southeast Asian staples, like lampreis (rice and vegetables wrapped in a banana leaf) and edible rice-flour bowls filled with curry. Temper the spice with a cool mango lassi, or a bowl of coconut-milk pudding for dessert.
