Gelato down Pedlar's Street
Mike's Souvenir Corner is a little accessory boutique on the street somewhere in Unawatuna.
Qahwah is Almonds Exclusive's own coffee station, but really it's just a part of the restaurant. There's nothing that sets it apart from the place itself other than some rather interesting coffee options.
Larich is an international company founded in Australia. Their main focus is canned, tinned and bottled spices, curries, meats and tons of other stuff.
Bangladesh's favourite Burger joint is now available in Sri Lanka. The burgers are tasty and all, but the heavy price tag is questionable.
The VoV Coffee Lounge is a little eatery at Wellawatte that serves up 100% vegan food. They're fairly priced, the food is tasty and their burgers are sure to satisfy.
Tagine is a new restaurant that shares the same building as Pho Vietnam. They claim to serve Authentic Moroccan Cuisine, but it's really just a mix of dishes from various Middle Eastern/North African regions.
Mr Burger is a new burger joint down Bambalapitiya. Their burgers are so-so but we loved their Quarter Pounder.
Escape Colombo is a live 'escape' experience. You can take a bunch of people with you, get locked in a room and try your best to solve the clues and make it out before the timer runs out.
Bella's Kitchen is a breakfast and lunch delivery service that which we found pretty convenient.
The Big Bad Wolf Sale has landed in Colombo. All hell has broken loose.
Chopsticks is a down to earth joint in Nawala serving a vast menu of cheerfully Sri Lankanised Chinese food. Fried rice, devilled chicken, black bean pork and so on - the Sino-Lankan side of the menu is huge, and most of what we devoured was incredibly satisfying
Butter Boutique has moved now! They're officially setting up shop at Rosmead Place so we went to check them out.
Krua Thai is a brand new street food joint at Galle Road. Although they claim they're a street food type place, they've got a nice seating area and whatnot. We loved it!
The New Majestic Hotel is ironically one of the oldest hotels in Colpetty. How have they been doing since our last visit? Not bad, actually. Not good, but not bad.
Polythene bags, rigifoam and such inconveniences are banned from the 1st of September 2017. How will we survive without our planet-choking, plasticine pals?
The Rascals Kitesurfing Resort is a lovely retreat all the way in Kalpitiya. They offer a dynamic range of activities and a stellar experience.
The YAMU office is a big A/Ced room full of reasonably nice, kind of weird people. The food appears almost once a week and the ambience is interesting.
Anawasal is an idyllic resort tucked away somewhere by the lagoons of Kalpitiya. They've got a collection of cabanas, an extremely chilled out atmosphere and are pet-friendly. We loved the place!
Anaaj is a home-chef who specialises in authentic Pakistani Biriyani. They also have a bunch of other interesting items on their menu.
Ambrosia does baked goodies, but they're not a home baker. They're a company, but the stuff we had was made by a very skilled hand and given the special attention that only home bakers are known to give.
ARÔ Cold Pressed Juices are all the rage now. We tried out a few of their concoctions and are convinced we're now walking beacons of prime health.
Sugarcube is the newest cafe to grace Duplication Road. With its cutesy and warm ambience, it was an instant favourite!
Colombo has a few party supply stores, but most of the products are not of especially high quality. Party Station is a new shop in the new Liberty Arcade which has glow sticks, balloons, party hats, costumes - basically whatever you'd need for any celebration.
