One of the oldest Chinese restaurants in Colombo, Chinese Dragon does an okay job.

E-Cafe has a nineties - early 2000s vibe going on, burgers, desserts, coffee, drinks, and bready stuff. All of them pretty good.

Sameeha's is popular for their cheese kottu, and is one of THE places to drop into in Negombo.

Indi and Shru have been making an effort to convince me of the merits of Mc Rice. I’ve responded with stubborn scepticism. I don’t eat McDonalds (it’s not food snobbery, or maybe it is)…
