Little Star Bakery is one of the most popular eateries among the residents of Mount Lavinia, and anyone who’d like to grab a bite on the go. It’s been three years since our last visit to this place, and aside from a few changes in their interior, and new additions to the menu, it’s more or less the same.
From savory goodies to Sri Lankan and Western infused sweets, Little Star has a pretty huge selection. They also do rice and curry for lunch, and a range of good dessert items, including cakes.
We also ordered their Chicken Lamprais (Rs. 350) which fell flat in terms of taste. It came with a hefty portion of rice, a cutlet, seeni sambol, chili paste, vambatu moju, a boiled egg, ash plantain and a massive piece of chicken, neatly packed in a banana leaf.
While the rice was just sticky rice, it didn't have a seasoning at all. The vambatu moju was flavorsome, but then again the ash plaintain was mushy and overcooked. There isn't anything special to say about the cutlet either. It was a veg cutlet, stuffed with mashed up potato and onion.
On the bright side, the pretty chunky piece of chicken was cooked and spiced well, and the slight sweetness of the seeni sambol was a nice touch.
As for drinks, we got a Double Choco (Rs.60), which was made from a hot chocolate machine. It was quite alright in terms of taste, had a good consistency, balancing the chocolate and milk flavors in a proper manner.
The service can get a bit crummy during the rush hours, but the staff here seems to be trying their best to serve the food as quickly as they can.
As for ambience, this place is properly air-conditioned, comfortable and spacious enough to accommodate at least 50 customers at a time. They seemed to get a lot of bulk and takeaway orders.
Little Star Bakery is immensely popular because of the wide selection of food they offer. If you're in a mood for an easy snack or a quick breakfast on the go, this is worth a shot.
