The Malaysian food scene in Colombo is finally picking up, and now PappaRich is here too. A well-known international franchise restaurant with over 100 branches worldwide, they do good Malaysian fare, which is quite friendly on the pocket. Make sure to try their Nasi Lemak, and pair it with a glass of Milo Dino.
The Catch Colombo does fried fish right. They come with some interesting sauces and you can pick a carb (steamed rice, fried rice, roast paan) of your choice too. Try their kochchi sauce and cry happy tears!
Jolly's excels at Lankanising the Western flavours of ice cream. You can clearly taste this from their Salted Pani Kaju, Tinkiri, Kiri Kopi ice cream flavours. Plus, they've got seasonal stuff. This avurudu, they're making kiribath ice cream with pol pani topping.
If you are planning to hang out at CCC this weekend, and have got some cash in your wallet, why not stop by EDO? They do some delicious Japanese fare, with full-on authentic touch. Chicken Katsudon here is a must try.
If you have a weakness for fries and are tired of dipping them in the same old ketchup/mayo, Chips & Dips is where you SHOULD go. They've got a number of interesting dipping sauces that you can pair your fries with - Meaty Chicken, Cheesy, and Thai etc. If fries aren't your thang (um, what's wrong with you?), you can try out their range of burgers, which is also supposed to be quite amazing.
Happi Foods is a fragment of a restaurant that belongs to Cajun On Wheels. They are known for whipping up some giant bowls of soup and rice-centred specialities with a Singaporean touch. Everything on the menu here is priced at Rs. 600, and it's worth every rupee you pay for it.
That's it for this week. Bon Appétit!
A potential hidden treasure of a restaurant in the heart of Colombo 13 that could be great if they do something about their food.
No promises of a long weekend? You can still contribute towards a colourful one!
