Chambers @ Park Street Mews

Located at: 48D Park Street, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 15 Sep, 2018 Having recently opened its doors in Colombo, Chambers – located on twinkling, bustling Park Street – has a simple but cosy set-up with a few well-selected colourful décor that light up the rustic-ish interior. The cuisine is Maghrebi (Northwestern African)-Arabic, so to…

Caramel Pumpkin (Part 02)

Located at: 38 Ward Place, Colombo 07, Sri Lanka Visited on: 12 Sep, 2018 I had already tasted a couple of dishes from here before, so I thought of trying out a few new things this time. However, I did stick with the delicious beverage that I (thoroughly) enjoyed on my first visit – The…

Dolce Italia (Part 02)

Located at: 5 Skelton Road, Colombo 05, Sri Lanka Visited on: 04 Sep, 2018 Visiting again after a while, I thought of trying something other than pizza this time. But first, I needed to rehydrate – a Lime and Mint fresh juice (LKR 400) was my choice. I like the fact that they prepare this without…

Royal Thai @ Cinnamon Lakeside

Located at: 115 Sir Chittampalam A Gardiner Mawatha, Colombo 02, Sri Lanka Visited on: 20 Aug, 2018 We were in the area on the day and decided to try out Royal Thai’s Lunch Set Menu. They serve this offer on weekdays and Saturdays from noon to 3.00 pm at a rate of LKR 1,955 nett per…

Café Sociale

Located at: 252A Galle Road, Colombo 04, Sri Lanka Visited on: 21 Jul, 2018 This place had been popping up on my newsfeeds for a while and I was quite curious to try it out. So off we went on a smoulderingly hot afternoon to fill our bellies. The first thing that strikes you about…

The Lagoon @ Cinnamon Grand (Part 02)

Located at: 77 Galle Road, Colombo 03, Sri Lanka Visited on: 18 Jun, 2018 Yet again, the first thing that struck me was how crowded this place was on a weekday. I guess it says something about the restaurant and what it dishes out. The staff are on their toes, yet manage to keep it…

The Embazzy

Located at: 76/1 Flower Road, Colombo 07, Sri Lanka Visited on: 12 Jun, 2018 Colombo’s been sprouting out restaurants and cafés like mushrooms after the rain. Which is great for food enthusiasts since it gives plenty to choose from and explore. One of these relatively new spots, The Embazzy, was quite abuzz when we visited…

The Dubai Diaries: Fish Market @ Radisson Blu Dubai Deira Creek

Located at: Baniyas Road, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 08 Apr, 2018 Here’s another spot that doesn’t disappoint. This was our first visit since Fish Market’s facelift from the rustic, bamboo and thatched-roof interior to the more contemporary white and teal décor. Quite nice, I must say. In fact, the restaurant looks more open…

The Dubai Diaries: PAUL @ Deira City Center

Located at: 8th Street, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 07 May, 2018 Yes, I don’t usually review restaurant chains. However, this international French bakery / pâtisserie / café / restaurant is certainly no fast-food chain and in fact borders on a sort of relaxed gourmet style. Their Parisian influenced ambiance and uniforms are eye-catching (cue…

The Dubai Diaries: Hoi An @ Shangri-La

Located at: Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, United Arab Emirates Visited on: 04 May, 2018 This restaurant has been one of our favourites in Dubai for years. We started off enjoying the place as occasional diners, mostly reveling in the delicious food they offer on their à la carte menu. And then we discovered their Friday…
