So another day in our quest for a restaurant (not a hole in the wall/buth kadai) that serves a good rice and curry meal. We had a hot tip on The Angler a small restaurant down Hotel Road just up the road from the Mt Lavinia Hotel. We heard they served up a good homestyle curry with an emphasis on seafood, so expecting delicious piles of squid and prawn curry we rushed down to everyone’s favorite beachside suburb.
La Passion is a midrange, established hair salon
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.
A gang of hairdressers operating out of three small rooms on Vajira Road, with a branch in Mount Lavinia.
Colombo Courtyard is a business hotel which also serves as one of the city's hippest new bars.
As the name suggests, a good place for generous burgers. Generous means that the burgers are big and have good cuts of meat, including lamb. The vegetarian burger here is also quite respectable. It's a big, fat mushroom and quite satisfying even for carnivores.
The Blue Swan is a great place for original Hansa coffee and chocolate, and brownies. It's an affordable, cosy coffee lounge.
The lawn of Waters Edge will feature a plethora of music, with entrance by the Rs. 1,000 day pass.
Colombo's Dutch Hospital (near the World Trade Center) is the coolest place to hang out right now. It gets a bit cooler with music from the trio of Suran, Hirantha and Gananath and Koei Tanaka (Harmonica) and Shigeru Sawamura (Keyboard).
This should be a high energy show, featuring scores of drummers and two very cool violinists. At Waters Edge, from 8:30 PM.
The brand new and slightly under-utilized Nelum Pokuna theatre is hosting 'Living Legends In Popular Music'. No Nanda Malini, so we wouldn't say legendary per se, but there is an array of popular Sri Lankan artists, in a new and posh space.
