Bites Sri Lanka is a comparatively cheap and reliable option to get some delicious bites delivered to your doorstep. Their menu has a nice local touch to it, and includes a variety of curried up, devilled and stewed chicken, beef and pork. The Beef Curry is perhaps the best meat curry we've had all year, while the Pork Stew was hella rich with peppery, mustardy kicks.

Street Bites is another home cook who does some flavour-packed bites to pair with your beer. Their main focus is on chicken, pork and seafood-centric bites, but also does a couple of vegetarian dishes. The Pepper Pork was the biggest highlight of our meal here, which comes with a good dose of kochchi in it.

1979 Boralesgamuwa was one of our regular hangout spots during the pre-COVID era, when we're in the mood for some excellently prepared Sri Lankanised Chinese bites, paired with something boozy. We're in love with their Hot Butter Cuttlefish and the Kalupol Pork.
