The meat varieties of Chop Chop's kottu range involves chicken, egg, sausages, prawns and crab. From what we observed, the only relatively new option on the list is the Mixed Kottu, which includes all of the meats and clocks in at Rs. 810.
Depending on the availability, we went with the Egg Kottu (Rs. 610) with Cheese add-on (Rs. 120) and a Chicken Kottu (Rs. 610).
Featuring a bullseye egg, and a few pieces of onion, the portion size of this kottu is adequate for one person. It wasn't oily in any way, and had some bits of leeks, carrots and karapincha, but not in an overpowering way.
The cheese add-on was barely there, but they seemed to have made good use of milk. Well-seasoned, not too spicy yet flavoursome, while the milk adding a bit of creaminess, it was a good kottu.
The base of the Chicken Kottu was similar to the previous one, except for the bits of roast chicken scattered about. There was a good amount of that, but not enough, especially when you're at the last few spoonfuls.
Again, in terms of flavour, it's good, but doesn't quite justify the Rs. 610 price tag.
Service & Ambience
The Chop Chop Kottu at ODEL Promenade is tucked to a corner of Elephant House outlet, so it can be easily missed. As this is a part of a food court, you have the option to sit down and enjoy your kottu.
The staff managing the counter was friendly. We received our food within around 5 – 10 minutes into ordering.
From what we gathered, the drive-through spot of Chop Chop Kottu (and Gonuts With Donuts) down Castle Street is no more. They've been moved to Battaramulla, and therefore, if you're craving for a taste of their kottu in a super-central location, this outlet at ODEL Promenade is the closest bet.
