Santacruz is around 100 miles from where I live. We usually drive along Highway-1, spend some time around the beaches and finally end up in Santa Cruz, all ready to eat at the Sri Lankan Restaurant 'PEARL OF THE OCEAN'.
Restaurants from the Indian Subcontinent are all around us in the Bay Area, but 'PEARL OF THE OCEAN' is something special.
It's not the typical Desi Restaurant that you might have eaten at. Organic,locally grown, Quality and healthy food without compromising on the taste is the specialty here. That's what drives us to eat here whenever we get an opportunity.
I have to mention the 'Kale with Coconut' dish', which is my favorite. I've never eaten a Kale dish anywhere so tasty. Oh...can't explain how wonderful it is. Oh, and try the 'Srilankan Mango curry' as well....delicious !
Don't take my word, please try it once and I am sure you'll love it as well !
