Here's quick list on places that serve up healthy food without compromising on flavour.

Healthy food tends to get a bad rap for not tasting that great or just being too expensive to eat on a regular basis, but Colombo actually has a quite a few places that serve up healthy food without compromising on flavour. Here's quick list of places to check out if you're looking to switch to a healthier diet.

Cafe Kumbuk
60, Horton Place, Colombo 7

Cafe Kumbuk is the newest addition to Colombo's healthy food scene. With a minimal aesthetic and a focus on local, organic and seasonal produce, Cafe Kumbuk serves up some tasty health food using high quality ingredients at a beautiful location. They also have a vegan takeover a couple of times this July, so get booking! 


Life Food
14, Reid Avenue, Colombo 07

Life Food is a low-key health food stall at The Good Market Shop in Lakapahana. Both their salads and drinks are excellent and they manage to keep stuff healthy and fresh while keeping the flavours intact.


Healthy Living
Delivery, Pick up location at Shrubbery Gardens.

Healthy Living, in many ways, were the pioneers of Colombo's growing health food scene. They deliver healthy meals to your doorstep with an emphasis on affordablility as well as dishes like healthy rice and curry where they emphasize the vege curries, use red rice and lean meat less coconut milk.


Calorie Counter
61, Thimbirigasyaya Road, Colombo 05

Although Calorie Counter has only been around for a bit over a year, they've already made their mark on the health food scene in Colombo. They're pretty much the only restaurant (apart from Kumbuk) that really offers health food in the form of restaurant-quality dishes. They focus on healthier alternative ingredients with a calorie count for each dish, so you know exactly how much you're actually eating. 


Milk & Honey Cafe
44A, Horton Place, Colombo 7

Milk & Honey Cafe, despite the irony of the name, is one of the few vegan eateries in the city. They've got an impressive menu of healthy sandwiches, wraps and smoothies - and some amazing home-made cakes and brownies.

 


Paan Paan
84 Lorensz Road, Colombo 4

Paan Paan's newly introduced range of salads offer great value for money as well as fresh and vibrant veggies, with delivery to boot. We think it's a great initiative on their part, so hopefully their contemporaries will follow suit.


Eat Right
129, Philip Gunewardena Mawatha, Colombo 07

Eat Right is a cool new delivery website made for those who want to live healthy. You get to pick from a range of salads, wraps, sandwiches, rice and curry - and even healthy kottus, while you can also get health tips and calculate your BMI on the site. With studies showing correlations between obesity and conditions like type 2 diabetes, the ability to monitor your BMI will help tweak your diet as and when needed.


Wonderbar
14, Reid Avenue, Colombo 7

Wonderbar is a great option for those who are cautious of their sugar intake but still have a sweet-tooth. They offer gluten,dairy and sugar free desserts and smoothies with some unique combinations and ingredients.


Subway
347, R. A. De Mel Mawatha, Colombo 03

Subway can be healthy if you opt for the right bread and lean meats or veggies. From the bread to the filling to the sauces - these sandwiches are as customized as they come, there's plenty to munch on, and it's not crazily priced.


Health Factor
42, Dutugemunu Street, Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia

Health Factor is a simple little restaurant on the ground floor of High Octane Fitness gym in Kohuwala. They've got a lovely healthy menu, with food that strikes a balance between quality and cost.
