Lifestyle Gym Snack Bar.


Lifestyle Gym

also has a snack bar that serves some healthy wraps and drinks – we thought we’d pay a visit and check it out. The food is good and super affordable, and ironically, we loved this fitness center’s cookies the best. 

Location & Ambience

The snack bar here isn’t much for ambience – it’s mostly inviting to people on a break from their workout at the gym. It’s still a clean space, enough for about five people, with bar stools, high table tops and a fish tank for funsies. 

The

Lifestyle Gym

is inside the Sri Lanka Tennis Association, which also has got

Santore

on its premises. When you walk through the gates, the gym is right ahead down the corridor in front of you. 

Food & Service

The menu here is nice and extensive: bagels (kurakkan bagels too), cereals, salads, a range of chicken wraps, a few fish and veg, and a long list of juices. We could only try a fraction of all these choices, but some interesting things we noted were the Kadala Salad and the combo-juices, which is a whole bunch of veggies or fruits blended together (Milk & Honey Cafe

also does this). 

Service is basically one or two people at the kitchen counter, and one at the cashier’s. We got our dishes in a few minutes, and at the time of our visit, there was a friendly lady at the counter who was happy to inform us about our options.  

What we tried was the recommended CJ Special. For Rs. 400, this was actually extremely tasty: lightly cooked cubes of chicken tossed with caramelized onions, fresh lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes and a bit of cheese, wrapped in light pita bread. The cheese makes it a dubious candidate for a healthy snack, but it wasn’t greasy and heavy, and made a relatively healthy snack compared to pita wraps elsewhere. They also have Tandoori and BBQ chicken wraps here, which aren’t generally healthy options but it seems they’re made here with relatively healthy moderation. 

We love that there’s a range of freshly blended juices to pick from here. We asked for the Veg Buster, for Rs. 280, which is a blend of beetroot, apple, cucumber and celery. The beetroot flavour is quite strong, so it’s slightly bitter, but it was thick and refreshing – we were told they don’t add water or sugar to the juices, it’s pure flavour. 

Our other wrap was more in keeping with healthy standards – the Vegetta Wrap, for just Rs. 240. It’s basically gotukola, cucumber, carrot and celery in a very light sauce, wrapped in roti. We think this usually would have made a very fresh veg snack, but unfortunately ours was a little bit too salty. 


The Lifestyle Gym unexpectedly had on display an array of cookies, chocolate chip et al. We had the cashew cookies – best cashew cookie ever, thick, sugary and happiness-inducing for cadju lovers. One costs just Rs. 40. 


Conclusion


The snack bar at the Lifestyle Gym is good if you like quickly assembled, lettucey wraps, and fresh, healthy juices. It’s not the kind of place you’d take your friends or family to for a sit-down, but if you happen to be working out at Lifestyle or at the Tennis court, it’s not bad at all. It’s also rather easy on the wallet, with everything for around Rs. 250-400.
