Anula's Cafe (Oakland)

I always wondered about Anula's Cafe as I walk by it on the way to Stag's. Last week I was tired and didn't feel like going the extra few blocks and ended up in front of Anula's. Boy was that a good decision. The hot meal specials sounded Indian but it turns out the proprietor is Sri Lankan. I had the chicken roti lunch and returned Monday for the chicken curry lunch. It was delicious in a wholesome, homemade kind of way. Like slow food. The food was very flavorful without being overly greasy or salty. Each day there is a different special, each $7.
They also serve standard lunch fare like sandwiches, salads, and smoothies but I've been too intrigued by the lunch specials. The other customers seemed to be regulars, it sounded like she has a small following.
