It's a city gushed with racks, bellies, loins and legs. Some good, but often disappointing. So where does a piggie junkie even supposed to start – especially during this lockdown?
We've got some great news for ya!
PorKen Deli is all about pork. They love chicken too, but pork is their main.
Good, quality cuts of pork aren't always easy to come by in Sri Lankan restaurants, or any form of delivery outlets. Therefore, PorKen Deli firmly believes that both of these diverse proteins should be cooked with so much care if you want to bring the best out of them. Which is why they've taken necessary steps to do justice, by finding high-quality meats and lavishing them with a good dose of spices and flavour.
It's their mandate that the food they serve should be as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. They believe in providing flavoursome food, in generous quantities that's prepared using diversified, local ingredients. They strive to develop authentic recipes for staples that are also considered as Sri Lankan delicacies.
Every meal that they whip up in their kitchen is checked for quality, flavour and presentation, before serving them to the customer. Coming from a pedigree of Burghers, they're confident that the recipes that were passed on from generations will make sure to tantalise your taste buds.
PorKen Deli comes in handy on those days that you are completely exhausted to cook, or when you want to reward yourself with an occasional indulgence of a meal cooked in a home ‘away from home’, or even if you are having some friends/family over and you would rather spend time with them than in the kitchen.
Despite being a meat-centric hub, PorKen Deli hasn't left out the vegetarians. They've got a few veg-items on their menu, such as Dhal curry – Pol Sambol combo, Tempered Potato and Bean Fry. How thoughtful!
How To Order?
- Galle Road – from Colpetty to Mount Lavinia
- Colombo 05, Colombo 07, Colombo 08
- Battaramulla, Nawala, Nugegoda, Kohuwala, Pepiliyana, Boralesgamuwa, Maharagama, Delkanda, Narahenpita and Thimbirigasyaya
However, on special occasions and for larger orders, they go beyond these areas.
Since the food is cooked for the occasion and with no preservatives, the orders need to be placed one day in advance. But, when it comes to staples like Black Pork, Red Pork, Chicken curry, Pepper Pork (Pork Bistake) or Pork Bedum, they do same day deliveries as well. They also entertain pickups, however, dine-in is not available at the moment.
They assure that the quantities they serve are much larger than the ones you get in restaurants as the meats are skinless and boneless, so it's 100% consumable; not an ounce of it will go to waste. Plus, the rates are nett; therefore it's a total win!
We at YAMU are already drooling over the pictures they've sent us, and cannot wait to get our hands on some piggie goodness as soon as we're back to work from the office. So stay tuned! If you've already tried them out, do let us know in the comments.
