A cosy nook of a cafe in Thalawathugoda, Yasmin's Cafe fills the void of one of the most anticipated needs in the area – a dessert parlour. They have ice cream (Carino), cakes (from The Cake Factory) and waffles, as well as a range of coffee and milkshake to pair them with. The ambience is comfy as hell, so it's ideal for a weekend hangout, and even to get some work done in a calm, peaceful setting.
Lagoon Kitchen's take on lamprais isn't authentic, but has a twist of their own, and it tastes quite good. We highly recommend the Mixed Meat Lamprais, which comes as an assortment of creamy ash plantain curry, sweet moju, meat-filled frikadels, prawn-y blanchan, a boiled, fried egg, and a delicious mixed meat curry.
A sister restaurant to the ever so popular Bavarian German Restaurant, 3Brother's Italian Bistro is a good option to grab a slice (or 8) this weekend. Raised at the edges and thin at the centre, they do a nice job with their crust, and quite generous with the toppings.
The Vietnamese flavour hub in Battaramulla, Kim's Kitchen is a must-try if you wish to get some warm bowl of delicious Pho. Their food is cooked by a Vietnamese chef, has a very authentic touch to it, and tastes quite amazing.
