Simply Strawberries By Jagro (Kotte)

No. 61, Ethul Kotte, Kotte.


Jagro's branch in Kotte more cozy and perfect for hangouts.



The only place in Colombo that's dedicated to just strawberries, Jagro always attracts the locals. Now people in the Battaramulla/Kotte area have access through their new branch here.

The Food

Their menu hasn't changed at all since our last visit so we went with the most popular dishes.

First off we tried the Waffle With Berries And Cream (Rs. 550). It delivered. The giant waffle was excellent with a great crunchy texture at the edges. As usual, it was topped with a ridiculous amount of strawberries, fresh cream and your pick of either strawberry or chocolate sauce. I love how messy it always gets with the cream and sauce. A deliciously sweet dessert.

Next up is one of my personal favorites, the Chocolate Sandwich (Rs. 650). The chocolate cake was a little cold which obviously meant it had been sitting in the fridge for a while, however, it wasn't crumbly. In fact, it was surprisingly gooey in the middle and very chocolatey. The abundance of cream, chocolate sauce, and the strawberries added with that big chunky cake slice made up for a very filling dessert. We suggest you share this with your partner or friend.

As per tradition, we had to get a cheesecake too. The Raspberry Cheesecake (Rs. 650) was really delicious, no surprise there. The sweetness of the no-bake filling and the sourness of the raspberry coulis added up to a well-balanced, succulent cheesecake. The buttery and slightly crumbly biscuit base added that extra oomph. 

The Drinks

They don't have an extensive drinks menu, only the strawberry juice, Strawberry smoothies and milkshakes.

The Strawberry Milkshake (Rs. 350) was kind of a letdown. There was way too much milk and not enough strawberries. Since they never skimp on the strawberries, I was expecting a lot more flavor and for that price, I don't think it's worth it.

Service and Ambience

The service is great. They're very friendly and attentive to what you order that you hardly have to repeat yourself. Except for the waffles and the milkshake, everything else is pre-made so our food arrived within 10 minutes which was great.

Compared to their other outlets, this is by far the most spacious which means it rarely gets congested. It's a great place to unwind and satisfy those sweet tooth cravings. They also have an upstairs seating area as well. 

Conclusion

Jagro continues to be one of the go-to spots for some delicious, filling desserts. They have managed to keep up their standards and continues to serve the freshest strawberries in town. We don't have to tell you twice to go check them out.


TIP

Try the waffles.

I am unsatisfied with their service. I ordered 2 chocolate sundae and they have prepared other dessert for me. But I didn't accept it. But they charge 1200 from my card and I returned my dessert. I am a regular customer in that place and they didn't care about it. I was with my business client and both of us were unhappy with their service.
