Divine at Borella serves up some ok-ish savoury items for an affordable price tag.
A random hole-in-the-wall shop selling full and half portions of grilled chicken. Alas, definitely NOT Jamaican Chicken.

හෝටලේ පාන්දර 5ට අරින නිසා පාසල් යන ළමයින්ට වගේ නම් ලොකු සේවයක් වෙනව ඇති. ඒත්…
ඒ දවස් වල අපි ආරියබවන් එකෙන් බූන්දි 100කුත් අරන් කෙලින්ම යන්නෙ මැගසින් රෝඩ් පැත්තට.…

MINI Opened up their very first showroom in Sri Lanka a few months back. We dropped in to have a look at their latest offerings and their pretty cool.
Ambrosia does baked goodies, but they're not a home baker. They're a company, but the stuff we had was made by a very skilled hand and given the special attention that only home bakers are known to…
