Specializing in Sri Lankan fusion, our menu is all about going out of the ordinary with authentic recipes and tantalizing, original combinations.
North Texas doesn’t have many Sri Lankan restaurants, so it’s an impressive feat that Spicy Zest has managed to establish itself as one of the most compelling eateries—of any cuisine—in the Dallas area. The menu, which also includes Thai and Indonesian influences, is loaded with exciting dishes like Egg Hoppers (a savory crepe with egg and chili) and Lamprai (fried rice wrapped in a banana leaf with sambal and meat). The laid-back space is relatively no-frills, but there is a full bar and even a mini grocery store in the back (so, some frills), where you can have a drink while perusing hard-to-find condiments.
How to book: Stop by for first come, first served seating.
