This is by far the best Soya I have ever had. Brilliant use of Soya, with various types of food available. It was a pleasant experience, friendly atmosphere and a very clean environment. The food was mouth watering, definitely craving it even after coming back...More

Soya ice cream and good snacks from a counter in the middle of Kandy city. Definitely worth popping by for a quick bite to eat and to listen to the martial arts students next door!

This is the only place in Kandy so far for my knowledge that sells soya food. The icecream is really tasty and its like if you eat one you need one more. The shorteats they make too are marvelous especially the Rolls.

It's not much of a food place, but they have good ice cream. It's vegan so it will not give you a "turist stomach".

We went for the ice cream, but discovered that the baked goods are exceptional! We ended up filling our bellies with roti + crumbed soya, samosas and other delicious vegan bits. The food was so good that we ordered everything again take-away and jumped on...More

Description
Sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. Also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller. Trucks in Kandy also sell the so called "soy ice cream", in smaller portions, though the ice cream at the Soya Centre is the tastiest and has the best quality.
