Five Fav Food Spots in Sri Lanka

It’s pouring travel posts on TSC because it’s been a good quarter full of travel and now it’s time to finally start sharing with you all about the beautiful Travel experiences.

Let’s face it though food can be the most exciting thing during travels so here I am sharing the Best Five Meals I had on my travels through Sri Lanka.

So if you live in Sri Lanka and haven’t yet been to these places then you need to go enjoy a scrumptious meal there right away and if you are visiting Sri Lanka any time soon then these must be on your priority list for sure.

Here is a quick look at some of the places you must not miss when in Sri Lanka-

Crepology, Galle:

To be honest Galle has so many options to eat at the pretty Fort Area that it can get really confusing. But, if you need a break from all the madness and just want to indulge in some fabulous crepes then Crepology is the place to be. We started off with a savory (sri lankan style chicken) and a strawberry nutella crepe and yet hadn’t satiated our chocolate cravings so went ahead with just a plain nutella crepe. The best part is that the service is real quick and its a nice and quaint little cafe set up. We also bought some great tea at the boutique shop right below. The only thing to keep in mind is that the place shuts early by 9pm so make sure to be there in time.

Milano Inn, Nuwara Eliya:

Its not easy to find a good place to eat with a good set up in Nuwara Eliya. Its more about the Tea Estates and natural beauty. And you will definitely find it very difficult to get breakfast at a nice place (unless its at your own hotel or home stay). But well TSC just got you the most beautiful morning plan. Go for a blissful walk to Nuwara Eliya town centre and grab yourself some string hoppers at Milano Inn. Its not extremely fancy yet not basic and is perfect to go grab yourself a nice cuppa coffee and a good breakfast (they even parcel you the food in the morning).

Barefoot Cafe, Colombo:

We landed up here brunch time and yet had a lovely time in the seating areas that were all covered. The very balinese garden cafe kind of an ambience. Good food and a huge pot of tea (which meant at least 4 refills of tea). A blissful place to sit at amidst the crazy city life of Colombo. The best part also is the Barefoot store with all sorts of home decor, upholstery and even books available. Ladies you can almost redo your whole home if you set foot into Barefoot *phew*. So keep the moolah and space (in your luggage) aside for some lovely buys.


Salty Swami, Hikkaduwa:

Not that I have been to Bali but I do know for sure that this is what a quaint cafe in Bali would be like. Salty Swami can be easily missed when passing by on the road but once you set foot into Salty Swami and dig into their smoothie bowls or Vegan Bowls you are sure to be going back to that place for every meal possible. Unfortunately though they shut by 4pm everyday so breakfast, lunch and tea/coffee is all you can order until 3pm.

The ambience of the place, their cold brews, the smoothie bowls and their smoothies were so good that both the days we spent in Hikkaduwa we lunched only at Salty Swami. If you eat only Vegan and/or Gluten free then this place will just become home for you when in Hikkaduwa ❤

ON14 Rooftop Lounge, Colombo:

We were very lucky to have chosen Ozo Colombo to stay at in Colombo. Not only was the view amazing but their Rooftop Lounge- ON14 was absolutely fabulous. And as luck had to have it the last night of our trip (thursday) in Colombo was spent with live music at ON14. We didn’t eat much there, because the one Pizza we ordered was big enough for two of us (and not expensive per say) and the cherry on the cake was the happy hour that started post 11pm. So we got the beers then on at half price. The wind in our hair and the city lights below us along the sea made for an absolutely beautiful set up for the night spent in Colombo City.

In addition to these there are few more experiences & note worthy places in Sri Lanka that I liked during my trip but they weren’t only about the food. I would like to mention them here, incase you missed seeing them on my Instagram (PS: Follow me on instagram too for daily updates @thestylechair)

Mamas, Hikkaduwa:

Want to let your hair down, be beach side and enjoy some good food in Hikkaduwa? Well, this Mama really knows how to show you a good time. My most favourite spot at this spacious place was at the bar (not because of the ‘bar’) but because of the swings at the bar. We literally didn’t move from our spots all night till we hit the dance floor.

Ahinsa Restaurant, Sigriya:

As soon as you get out of the Tourist parking and start really building up an appetite after the Sigriya Rock Trek up. There are quite a few cafe/restaurants but we happened to try out Ahinsa cafe. The food was good and so was the fresh juice. But what we loved about being there was the fact that a few of the servers could speak Hindi and we felt so at home <3. The place is quite spacious too and can seat quite a few. I enjoyed my first Chicken 'Kotu Roti' (Sri Lankan speciality).

Ceylon Tea Cabin, Kandy:

Choose from a plethora of teas, sit at a quaint little cafe (tea cabin) enjoy a nice crumbly chocolate chip cookie and people watch. The moments of bliss right in the midst of candy town were spent at the Ceylon Tea Cabin. We just sat outside watching the Kandy city life, while we sipped away on our flavored teas.

I hope you guys liked this post! And if you visit any of these places on my recommendation then do share images with me on my Instagram. Don’t forget leave your comments below and Follow me on Instagram @thestylechair & my Travel Handle- @travelhappygirls
