In the fast-paced world we live in today, convenience is key, especially when it comes to shopping for groceries and grabbing a quick snack or meal. Keells has transcended the traditional definition of a grocery store. It has become a hub for those seeking a unique shopping experience, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner options that range from local delicacies to Western specials. With their range of bakery items, prepared meals and pizza, Keells invites you to visit any of their bakery and prepared food outlets and savour a meal prepared fresh just for you.
Whether you’re in the mood for a hearty Sri Lankan breakfast, a flavourful Western dinner, or anything in between, Keells has got you covered.
We tasted a selection of Keells prepared meals and bakery items to savour and evaluate. Here’s our take on their culinary offerings:
Rice and Curry with Chicken
Priced: Rs. 455/-
The chicken rice and curry from the supermarket was a delightful surprise. The cooked chicken paired perfectly with the aromatic curry, and the rice made it a satisfying meal. Their rice pack is a tasty and convenient choice that can be enjoyed by one person.
Chicken Fried Rice with Chopsuey
Priced: Rs. 690/-
The Chicken Fried Rice with Chopsuey was a flavour-packed delight. Even though the chicken could’ve been more tender, the pack impressed us with their well-seasoned rice, complemented by the colourful and crisp vegetable medley.
Priced: Rs. 740/-
The Chicken Koththu was a pleasant surprise. The finely shredded chicken combined with aromatic spices and chopped roti created a flavourful and satisfying dish. An ideal dinner to satisfy your local cravings!
Crispy Chicken Bucket (8 Pieces)
Priced: Rs. 2900/-
The Crispy Chicken Bucket was a real treat. The chicken could have been a bit more tender inside. However, on the bright side, it came as a golden-brown, seasoned bucket with 8 pieces of crunchy chicken.
The crispy chicken comes in portions of 2s, 4s as well as in a bucket of 8 sold at a very affordable price, perfect for your budget, and irresistibly filling portions of chicken.
A convenient and delicious choice for a quick meal to enjoy with a gang.
Devilled Chicken Pizza
Priced: Rs. 1990/-
The Devilled Chicken Pizza from the supermarket was a delightful fusion of flavours. You can pick from a variety of pizzas available on the counter and get them heated from the outlet instantly or warm it in the oven in the comfort of your homes. If you wish to have individual slices of pizzas, they have a variety of baked single slices prepared. We enjoyed the spicy kick of devilled chicken paired with cheesy goodness on a doughy crust made for a perfect quick lunch or dinner option.
Yellow Rice – Chicken
Priced: Rs. 570/-
The Yellow Rice infused a flavourful revelation. The fragrant blend of spices that we as locals are in favour of was infused in the dish. Yellow rice is a convenient and tasty local fusion only available during lunch, which you can enjoy on a busy day.
Chocolate and Strawberry Doughnuts Priced : Rs. 160/-
Chocolate Doughnut with Cashew Nuts Priced: Rs 175/-
The trio of doughnuts — Strawberry, Chocolate, and Chocolate and Cashew Nut-covered—offered sheer delight. The doughnuts are soft, sweet, and they satisfy cravings with a symphony of flavours and textures. Irresistible indulgence!
Priced: Rs. 75/-
The sugary vienna bread known as the Kimbula Bun was a sweet sensation. Its delicate, golden crust and sugar-coated layer concealed a soft, fluffy interior, making it a delectable and indulgent choice for breakfast or a snack.
Chicken and Mushroom Pie
Priced : Rs. 265/-
The Chicken and Mushroom Pie from the bakery was a savoury delight. The golden crust enveloped a hearty filling of tender chicken and mushrooms. A satisfying, and comforting choice for a quick snack.
Roast Paan with Pol Sambol
Priced: Rs. 130/-
The bakery has successfully prepared the in-house crispy toast to perfectly contrast the refreshing, tropical flavours of the Pol Sambol. A unique and tasty choice for a light and satisfying snack.
