Kottu Corner (Su-Rasa Food Court).

Kottu Corner is a stall in the Su-Rasa Food Court next to Gamsaba Junction. They are a dedicated kottu spot that serves kottu from day to night with interesting spins, like the Indian styled ones. Given kottu is the Sri Lankan go-to fast food, we were quite excited to try them out.

Kottu

The menu here is quite confusing. We were offered with the Indian styled kottu menu first, and then another one with fried rice items – which comes from another stall in the food court, as we were told. However, you can customise kottu as you like with the addition of cheese. 

Coming from their Indian-styled kottu range, the Mutton (Rogan Josh) Kottu (Rs. 890), saturated with brown-red curry colour. The roti had absorbed all the curry flavour, wasn’t too oily or too dry. We found bay leaves, cardamom, chilli in the mix but the overall flavour was mostly curry, without being as spicy to match its colour or name.

The mutton was cooked well, a tad chewy, and was almost creamy inside, packing its meaty flavour and there were about 6 – 7 pieces of them. While the inclusion of the onion and tomato was nice, we’d have liked to have a bit of rogan josh gravy on the side to mix things up with, since the kottu can come across as a tad dry. Nonetheless, we are happy about this rendition of mutton kottu from Kottu Corner.

The Supreme Seafood Kottu (Rs. 640) came with a pleasant seafood smell and but was a tad oily. There were more than enough cubes of fish coupled with prawns, and cuttlefish, alongside leeks, carrots as well as tomato and cucumber slices.

In terms of spiciness, it was quite alright. We’d have liked the kottu to have a bit more moisture though. The provided gravy, a chicken curry gravy we presume, which sadly didn’t mix well with the dish. It was a decent kottu considering the elements in it, but nothing to rave about.

We ordered the Hot & Spicy Roast Chicken Kottu, but what we got was the Cheesy Roast Chicken Kottu (Rs. 540). This one too followed the common suite of cheese kottu of Colombo, of being more milky than cheesy.

The milkiness was quite apparent in its aroma and flavour to the point it gives a gooey texture to the roti. There were enough shredded roast chicken pieces here, which were a bit salty, but some of them ware charred too much. The overall flavour of the kottu was quite mild and there were almost no spices to speak of.

Ambience & Service

The ambience of Su-Rasa Food Court is of a comfy Chinese resto with big seats and decent space to accommodate about twenty or so people at once. It was quite clean, quiet and air-conditioned as well.

There were separate dining rooms that you can get for Rs. 500 if you’re looking at a private setting. Plus, you can BYOB if you’re going for that option. 

The waitstaff was accommodating and polite. It was around 7 pm when we dropped in and the place was more or less vacant and got filled really quickly and our order took a bit more than 30 minutes to get to us.

Conclusion

Kottu corner has room to improve flavour-wise but other than needing slight tweaks here and there, we liked their kottu. Their portion sizes are decent for the price – one/two people can share it. We can recommend them as a decent spot to grab kottu with your family and friends if you’re in the area, or simply go for the delivery option.
