Looking for the Buttered Cuttlefish; 6 Places For The Finest Hot Butter Cuttlefish.

Hot butter cuttlefish (or HBC for short) is a popular Sri Lankan Chinese cuisine served in any Chinese restaurant in town. It is a favourite among many foodies and is so popular that it is also now served as a starter at most cafes. The making of it may seem simple but nailing it is a different story. So we thought of listing down some of the best HBC dishes in the city.

Chinese Dragon Cafe

Even though The Chinese Dragon is associated with hot butter cuttlefish for years, the trade of the dish is still there and is considered the best hot butter cuttlefish. The restaurant was based in Colombo 4, but today it has opened at various locations of the city. They also have an option of HBC rings as opposed to the normal tentacles.

Portion – Small Rs. 1125 /Regular Rs 1495.
