LONDON | Hoppers Soho is a Sri Lankan restaurant named after the pancakes made from fermented rice and coconut milk batter that are a popular breakfast item in Sri Lanka. The brainchild of the Sethi family (Trishna, Gymkhana, Bao), Hoppers turns the space formerly occupied by Koya into a relaxed zone with exposed brick, wood paneling, a rattan ceiling, tiled tables and Sri Lankan movie posters.

Hoppers is popular and there’s usually a line however it’s well managed – you can give the staff your number and they’ll call you when your table is ready meaning you can enjoy a drink elsewhere while waiting. When inside, the staff are very attentive and happy to explain the intricacies of the various items on the menu, which is great for those who are new to Sri Lankan food.

The menu focuses on Sri Lankan street food and it’s hard to decide what to order when everything sounds as enticing as it does. Bone marrow varuval with roti is a must order dish, with two pieces of roasted bone in a coconut sauce, served with a hot, buttery roti. When the glistening marrow and roti hit your tongue, you know that life is good. Another excellent option is the deep-fried mutton rolls served with a ginger, garlic and chilli ketchup.

The hoppers and dosas are served with caramelised onion relish, coriander chutney and a choice of karis (currys). If ordering a hopper, there’s an option to add an egg. Do yourself a favour and don’t even question whether or not you need the egg – just do it. For kari, try the fish kari, which contains perfectly cooked, fleshy fish and is served in a fragrant coconut sauce. Another great choice is the yoghurt and brinjal moju (aubergine pickle) kari.

The drinks list is a good mixture of local and Sri Lankan influences with Lion Sri Lanka stout and lager on offer along with Sri Lankan inspired cocktail and non-alcoholic drinks. The Kandy Gunpowder, made with Amrut, passionfruit, and manzanilla green peppercorn is a delicious accompaniment to the food. On the wine list look out for the specially bottled Gavi and a Barbera d’Asti.

With great food and great service it’s no surprise that Hoppers has become such a popular restaurant. The Sethi’s have done it again.
