Lagoon Kitchen is where you can get your lamprais fix this weekend. They follow their own recipe, with a bit of modification to the original one, and it tastes quite good. We highly recommend the Mixed Meat one. Orders can be placed via 0773558010, and they do delivery.
Playtrix is where you should drop by for a happening weekend. Their giant 18 ft screen is ready to broadcast Formula 1 this Sunday and 16 hours of nonstop Champions League games. All these, with some great food and cocktails offered with sweet deals.
YAMU's go-to spot for budget tipples, 1979 now has a new branch in Dehiwala too. Their take on Kalu Pol Pork curry is simply amazing, and the HBC is also a must try. And, it's BYOB!
We highly suggest you check out Tea Avenue this weekend, especially for the excellent high tea. For Rs. 2200 for two, their 3-tier platter has a wonderful assortment of savouries and sweets - from Kochchi Cutlets and Smoked Salmon Baguette to Chocolate Cakes and Mango Panna Cotta. At the moment, it's available at the One Galle Face outlet only. Buzz them at 0769693577 to make reservations.
Grill Kitchen is a solid spot to get some grilled meats, for a very affordable price. For example, they offer 10 beautifully made wings showered in sesame seeds for just Rs. 900. Superb!
Feeling a bit fancy this weekend? Check out The Avenue. With a menu that has bits and bobs of Asian, Sri Lankan, Western and Italian fare, along with an interesting range of coffee, mocktails, cocktails and other liquor, it's a bit pricy, but a good option for a fine upscale dining experience.
Pranzo has an amazing view and serves pretty good Italian and 'Sritalian' fare.
A cafe down Jawatta Road with good food, soothing vibes and all right coffee.
Popeyes, the American, multinational, fast food chain of fried chicken is now open in Sri Lanka.
