This is a sorta wall monument to... the truth. We think. This is a plaque in Borella which reads:The Foundation Of The Truth: The objective of the foundation is to establish irrefutable knowledge.
If you're ever at the Borella junction (Baseline and Cotta Road) you'll see the stairs leading down. These steps lead pedestrians under and across the road and have, over time, became home to a fair amount of shops. Here you can get everything from cell phones to 'fancy gift items'. Actually, that's about it.
After an initial hiccup, Arabian Knights has bounced back well. The food is nearly back to their former glory, and coupled with the new venue, things are looking up again.
On the Attidiya Road, there’s a small spot that has the best vegetarian food I’ve had in Sri Lanka. Perhaps the best Sri Lankan food. For Rs. 150 you get unlimited rice, kos, pollos, eggplant, potato or whatever they have on offer, plus homemade achcharu, lunuthe and papadum.
The Bloom Room is a high-end florist on Ward Place. It's one of those places where you give them your budget and they select a matching amount of flowers, but it's of good quality and with competent service and responsive management.
The park is perched above the Mount Lavinia Hotel and the ocean. It's a serene public space where you can hear and smell the sea but still be surrounded by green. They have a huge lawn, ample playground equipment, a full basketball court and even a small lending library.
The Bavarian has been around for ages, and is still hugely popular. Change can be a good thing but sometimes when you're doing something right, you should stick to it, and that's exactly what the German Restaurant has done.
Harpo's is known for their premium pizzas. The delivery though was an arduous process and took way longer than we expected.
Park Street Mews Restaurant is one of those select few that have managed to remain relevant and maintain high standards throughout the years. They haven't changed much at all, but we're fine with that since the food is excellent, the service is fast and the unorthodox setting is still quite chic.
