Amigos Grill & Chill.

Amigo's Grill & Chill is a small food joint down Battaramulla – Pannipitiya Road, that mainly focuses on serving up tasty local-style street food. They offer generous portions of them, and are BYOB. 

Food

We spotted a variety of kottu, rice-centric dishes and burgers on the food menu,  along with a couple of BBQ options.

The Prawn Fried Rice (Rs. 700) was quite rich. Underneath that blanket of cheddar, lies a hefty offering of well-seasoned, spicy rice that's packed with prawns. Each spoonful had at least one prawn. This portion is easily enough for two people.

The Amigo's Hawaiin Kottu (Rs. 900) was right up my alley. I love pineapple on many things, and this one was plentiful with it. Aside from that, it had a range of other elements, like chicken, seafood, bacon, and quite a bit of cheddar on top. Spicy, but not too oily, this is a solid meaty kottu that one can opt for. 

The Pulled Pork Burger (Rs. 890) was delicious too. A soft bun, loaded with just the right amount of ingredients. There was a lot of pulled pork here, dressed in a sweet sauce, a slice of good quality cheddar and some veggies, providing a little crunch, while the chunks of pickles create a playful tang. 

I love Amigo's fries. They're crispy as hell, and has a sprinkle of chilli powder, along with some fried curry leaves.

We weren't impressed by this BBQ Chicken Leg (Rs. 350). It was undercooked, and had no significant flavour to talk about due to the lack of proper marination.

Drinks 

Amigo's does excellent Ginger Beer (Rs. 250). Every sip of it was like a ginger-laced bullet that cleanses your soul. Certainly one of the best homemade ginger beers we've had in the city.

The Iced Milo (Rs. 240) was refreshing but definitely could use a couple more spoonfuls of Milo powder in it. 

Ambience & Service

The interior here is simple. An air-conditioned setting with a few wooden tables and long chairs, it delivers the chilled out ambience as promised. The staff included a friendly lady and a gentleman, who were happy to take our orders and deliver them fast.

Conclusion

Amigo's strength lies in the rice, kottu and burgers, while there's a lot of room for improvement in the BBQ aspect. These dishes are great to accompany a glass of chilled beer, or anything boozy, really. Do try them out if you're around.
