Lamprais By Shey.

Lamprais By Shey, as the name implies, is a venture dedicated to lamprais, but with a bunch of twists to the original recipe. They cook it at home and deliver to Colombo and its suburbs. 

The Lamprais

Aside from lamprais, they do a range of Sri Lankan-style dishes – curries, Pittu and Pol Roti etc. However, given that their speciality is lamprais, we decided to stick to just that. Among the four kinds of lamprais – Chicken, Black Pork, Seafood and Vegetarian, we picked the first two.

Priced at Rs. 650, this Black Pork Lamprais was an ensemble of rice, ash plantain curry, brinjal moju, prawn paste, a boiled, fried egg, two cutlets, and a generous portion of black pork curry.

As we unwrap the banana leaf, there was a nice aroma wafting through, which had us drooling. The rice was done well, the ash plantain curry was creamy, while the cutlets had a delicious filling. Unfortunately though, the brinjal moju was way too oily for our liking, and didn't have that sweet hint that one would expect from a good moju

Our favourite was the prawn paste. Prawn-y as promised, it had a slight sweetness to boot, and a tiny spicy kick too, which balanced out all the flavours on the plate wonderfully. 

The Black Pork Curry had room for improvement. There was a lot of fatty bits, which we weren't a fan of, and just a couple of meaty pieces. In terms of flavour, it was quite mild. 

This is the Chicken Lamprais (Rs. 600). The piece of chicken here was hefty, and curried-up. Not explosion of flavours, but tasted good, nonetheless. 

Conclusion

Lamprais By Shey is an option if you're looking for the taste of a home-cooked meal.
