Wichita’s Sri Lankan population is only about 200 strong, so your odds of being offered traditional Sri Lankan food in Wichita aren’t good  And that’s too bad for you, says TJ Jayaratne, a Sri Lanka native and Wichita resident who regularly craves the spicy food of his homeland.

But your odds will increase exponentially if you visit the 33rd annual Asian Festival on Saturday at Century II. The event, designed as a showcase of Asian culture in Wichita, has grown over the years into a must-attend event for foodies. This year’s festival will feature 40 food vendors serving cuisine from 12 countries.
