The Achcharu Kadé Cafe (Closed)

9, St Anthony's Mawatha, Colombo 03


Achcharu Kade is a colourful little restaurant in Kollupitiya - good achcharu, superb rice & curry and bombai muttai ice cream.



Achcharu Kade closed down their outlet, but they're still at Good Market and do lunch and dinner deliveries.

Achcharu Kade is killing it in terms of modern Sri Lankan food. We just reviewed them a few weeks ago, but, well, we got hungry again. This is a review of their delivery service.

The Service

AC's delivery partner is OrderFood.lk. We called 11 444 4111 and placed our order at around 11:30 AM. They told us the place opened at 12 and that we could expect delivery at 12:30. Their delivery guy arrived at 12:30 on the dot. The delivery charge is Rs. 150.

That's about it. We were happy. We have, however, heard that OrderFood's service can be unreliable.

The Food

The meal changes each day, check their Facebook page. We had saffron rice with creamy potato, brinjal moju, baduma (fried onion), kochchi sambol and chicken. We love Achcharu Kade's food. It's bursting with spice and really generous with flavor. There's a lovely balance of flavor, sweet from the brinjal moju and chicken, spice and texture from the baduma, creaminess from the potato. Really a wonderful and yet modern Sri Lankan experience.

The usual Sri Lankan bath packet leaves you with a huge pile of rice at the end. With AC you're actually overflowing with sides, it's not cheap at Rs. 380 for an executive lunch, but it's extremely generous in terms of sides and flavor.

You can also order their signature achcharu or go to their outlet for their amazing ice creams. In terms of rice and curry, we'd say this is one of the best in Colombo right now.

Conclusion

Achcharu Kade is a treasure, a real creative take on modern Sri Lankan fare. Their delivery service also makes it a good option for office munchers, though the price makes it more of an treat than an every day meal.


TIP

They also do delivery. Also you can get them to bring the food to your car after 6:00 PM. Better call before you make the trip since they just started up here so opening times can vary.
