With busy lifestyle, short eats are sometimes life saving. Sometimes they may cause stomach issues if you couldn’t select the correct place. P and S is one of the country’s best brands for bakery items. In addition to that Keels and Cargills also have good quality bakery items inside their stores. GHS hotel Wellawatta is also a perfect place for these.
Rice and Koththu
Since these 2 are the most popular local dishes in Colombo there are several restaurants offering these. I am going to recommend some of them.
1. GHS Hotel Colombo 6 – They have delicious rice and curry with high quality. Their lump rise is even better , but not available all the time. Price are relatively low.
2. Spice and Ice Colombo 6 – A nice place to have a complete lunch with a range of desserts too. Fried Rice , Koththu, Hoppers and other popular menus are available. Price are relatively low.
3. Bars Cafe – Even though they regularly change their appearance, they have a nice menu for a slightly higher price.
4. Curry Bowl – The leading brand in bakery items offer rice menus under this brand name. These are available in some of their P and S outlets , Curry Bowl restaurents Kotahena / Rajagiriya and deliver to events as well.
