They do a chicken and egg kotthu, thats about it. It’s a convenient place to get a drink too.
Just opposite the Diyawanna Jogging Track car park is the newly built army kotthu shop. This is the closest place for joggers to come and have a bite after a light workout. They do a chicken and egg kotthu, and that pretty much sums up the whole menu. They do however have a convenient little shop which sells biscuits, soft drinks and even cigarettes.
There are a few tables and chairs on either side of the small establishment, a decent place to have a drink or try their out their famous kotthu. Well I did, and to be honest it wasn’t the best I had had. The chicken leg tasted quite good, but the actual kotthu really didn’t live up to all the hype. It was just a bit dry (they do give you gravy though) and lacking in the spice and flavor you would expect from such a meal time delight.
It’s a convenient little place, and the food is decent, not great. They should really come up with a better parking arrangement, although you can park your car at the jogging track and it’s just across the road from there.
Chicken Kotthu is Rs. 170
