A charming little sandwich bar owned by the loveliest couple with delicious food.



Leesh is a convenient little sandwich bar/mini mart in nugegoda.

Exploring the streets of Nugegoda in search of good food, we stumbled upon a charming little sandwich bar, Leesh. Bizarrely, it happened to be right opposite one of our new favourite bath kades – Bo Sevana. The quaint little restaurant is well air conditioned, very clean and run by what is probably the sweetest couple you'll ever meet. They live just above the store with their kids, who you’ll probably be able to hear playing in the next room.

The best part about Leesh is that it’s not just a sandwich bar, but also a mini mart. They stock all household essentials from noodles, eggs and milk to items like detergents and shampoo. They’ve even got Wifi - it’s all very convenient.

Back to the food, we had the Chicken Mini Sub (Rs. 250), the Teriyaki Burger (Rs. 220) and a Chicken Mayo Sandwich on Brown Bread (Rs. 210). They prepare the food right in front of you on a grill behind the counter - this is probably why the meat tastes so healthy and fresh.

As we waited for the food (which took about 10 minutes), we decided to try their sweet Lassi. It was really sweet, an incredibly refreshing blend of curd and honey. I couldn’t finish mine because it was a bit too sweet but Indi enjoyed his.

The Chicken Mini Sub was really good; there was a perfect balance of sauces and garlic. They were also quite generous with the chicken. The Teriyaki Burger - great! It had a very light taste of mayo and teriyaki, the crisp piece of chicken between the buns was firm and juicy. The Chicken Mayo Sandwich was decent. Being a bit cautious about my health, I had this hoping it would be a light, healthy but still tasteful lunch. It actually turned out to be exactly that; the chicken and the salad carefully poised with a hint of mayo, lettuce and tomatoes. I was happy it tasted that good for something termed ‘healthy.’

To sum up - they have Wifi, Brown Bread (for you healthy folk), Brownies, Cream Soda Floats, Iced Coffee and a pretty tasty Sweet Lassi. Leesh is really popular with the working crowd, most of them coming in between 5 and 7 (after work) to grab a bite and do their grocery shopping on the way home.

All in all, a thumbs up from YAMU.

TIP

Try their burgers and brownies, if available.

සිංහල වෙන කඩ ගැන කතා කරද්දී... අපි ඉස්සෙල්ලම කතා කරන්නෙ ඒ කඩේ ඇතුලත පිටත අලංකරණය, සුවපහසුව වගේ දේවල් වුණාට, ‘ලීෂ්’ එක ගැන කතාකරද්දි නම්, කොයිදේ තිබ්බත් යාළු ඒ සිනාමුසු මුහුණයි, සුහද පිළිගැනීමයි... කොච්චරවත් ඉස්සරහින් ම තමයි!

සිංහල හිතන්නකො ඇඟිල්ලක් විතර මහත චිකන්වලින් අනූන පැටි එකක් රස පදමට බැදලා ඊට උඩින් හැම් පෙති 2කුයි චීස් පෙති 2කුයි එලලා ලූණු, තක්කාලි, සලාද අඩුම කුඩුම ටික දාලා ගත්තාම. මස් රසත් එක්ක යන චීස් රස නිසා..

සිංහල ලීශ් කියන්නේ නුගේගොඩ පැත්තේ ගිය වෙලාවට අනිවාර්යෙන් ම ගොඩ වෙන්න ඕනේ තැන්වලින් එකක්.

සිංහල ලීෂ් එකට කවුරු කොහොම ගියත් නිරන්තරයෙන් ලැබෙන ලෙන්ගතු සේවාව නම් කාගෙකාගෙත් හිත් ඇදගන්නවා විශ්වාසයි.

සිංහල නුගේගොඩ නගරයේ වීදි දිගේ හොඳ කෑම තියෙන තැනක් හොයාගෙන යද්දි අපට ලීෂ් කියන පුංචි සැන්ඩ්විච් බාර් එක හමු වුණා. පුදුමෙ තමයි මේක තියෙන්නේ අපේ අළුත් ප්‍රියතම බත් කඩේ, ඒ කියන්නේ බෝ සෙවණට හරියටම ඉස්සරහ පැත්තේ. මේ අපූරු පුංචි අවන්හල හොඳට වායුසමනය කරලා තියෙනවා. ඒ වගේම ඒක හරිම පිරිසිදුයි. ඒක කරගෙන යන්නේ ඔයාලට හමුවිය හැකි හොඳම ජොඩුව. එයාලා දරුවනුත් එක්ක ජීවත් වෙන්නේ අවන්හලේ ඉහළ මලයේ. ඔයාලට සමහරවිට එයාල සෙල්ලම් කරන සද්දෙත් ඇහෙයි.

Lovely place. I had the chicken teriyaki burger and an ice coffee. The burger was simply out of this world. The chicken was grilled to perfection and the right amount of sauces held the burger together. The bread was soft and warm, unlike other sandwich places where the bread is almost cardboard-like.
The place is so clean and the place is well-kept. The owner's are very sweet and obliging.
I definitely recommend it if you're in Nugegoda and you're looking for a bite.

I go to this shop at least once a week because my school is near this shop! They food is pretty awesome, clean and tasty. The place is cool and fresh and a very nice place to just relax and grab a bite! The owners are really sweet and have a smile all the time! Hate the fact that it's closed most of the times now!!
