Chop chop kottu for lunch anyone?
.
.
It's filling and it's amazing. The flavours and the spicyness is the perfect fix for this gloomy day.
.
.
We tried the chicken kottu which was 550/= and it was really good. Haters be hating for having kottu for lunch but who cares? There was a generous spread of chicken and we requested it less spicy so it was not too hot.

All about that creamy pasta with chicken and mushroom. 370/=
.
.
It's healthy. It's tasty. It's filling and totally worth the money. Of course, like any other place it has its days and this was a good day.
.
They have also added a few new items to the menu so don't hesitate to check it out. I've received word that the chicken noodles is the bomb ๐Ÿ”ฅ
.
PS- Don't let the look of the quantity decive you.

Chicken run anyone? ๐Ÿ“
.
.
It's healthy, it's affordable and most of all it's yummayyy!!
.
.
Brew serves healthy food which is filling and tastes good and has many varieties. Rice and curry gets kinda boring sometimes and when you're on a budget but still need something fancy I think Brew is the best place to go to. It has varieties of drinks, desserts, pastas and bagels. Its definitely the money.
.
.
I had the 'Cottage Pie' which had spicy chicken, mushroom, bell pepper and paprika. The flavours compliment each other so well. The top layer is potato and the filling is full of chicken and veges. Love the taste and it was just the right amount to fill that lunch meal. Price 320 LKR .
.
Stay healthy with a little bit of Brew! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ #foodbloggers#foodie#travelcouple#ourstory#shavinandnatlie#instadaily#personalblog#srilankanburghers#oneforthegram#reviewers

Are you thinking about lunch plans tomorrow?
Here's something you should consider probably now or tomorrow morning since you have to order before โ€ผ๏ธ9.00amโ€ผ๏ธ
.
.
Absolutely love the funkiness in the menu! It's divided into 3 stages,
1/ on your mark
2/ get set
3/ GO!
.
.
I tried "GO" and it was good. Not great but good. The quantity was filling but I didn't care much for the salad and of course since I'm not a salad fan I got the opinion from a salad fan and even she did not like it. It just did not work well with each other. Saying that, I feel the same thing with vegetables would have been a better option so I shall try it next time.
.
.
There was no delivery charges and they came right on time. Efficient like me ๐Ÿ˜
.
.
Refer the post for more details about the "stages" and do not forget to call them before 9. If it's past 9 just try your luck anyway, worked for us!
.

Happy lunching fam ๐Ÿ›๐Ÿฅ— #thatburghercouple#foodbloggers#foodie#travelcouple#ourstory#shavinandnatlie#instadaily#personalblog#srilankanburghers#oneforthegram#reviewers

Grand Beijing ๐Ÿ’ฎ
-
-
It is a restaurant with authentic Chinese food located at 62 Srimath Anagarika Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 3. I felt that the place could use a little bit of lighting as it looked gloomy and dodgy from the outside. With a few changes in decorations I feel that the place would attract more people.
-
-
Here's what we had to eat;
- Fried mushrooms with tallow
- Fried cashew nuts with minced garlic
- Chicken and vegetable spring rolls
- Prawns in hot garlic and chili sauce
- Black pepper beef
- Fried cuttlefish with minced garlic

Loved the food and the many flavors which worked well with everything that was ordered. A little overdose of oil and I think they should work on that but still tasted very good. The portions were also quite big so it is safe to say that it was very filling and worth the money. -

Good place for that authentic Chinese fix! ๐Ÿฎ

Chicken 'n' Chips from Seafood Shack!
-
-
3 crispy pieces of fried chicken with several hands full of chips is just perfect for those chicken lovers out there. If you are like us who eats a little too much then this would not be enough. This was eaten as a post lunch snack and it was just yummy!
-
-
PS- Eat it HOT HOT if not the chicken and chips will get soggy and will be a little less tastier than it's supposed to be.

Price- 400/=

If you're looking for a place to chill then this place is a must visit. -
-
They pick you up in a buggy cart from the entrance and bring you through the gorgeous trees to the main restaurant. It's overlooking the highway and it's extremely peaceful.
-
-
Also, do not forget to order their cuttlefish. It's so soft and yummy you can't stop eating. We ordered the fried rice, fish, chicken and pork. The food here is overall pretty good and definitely worth every cent.

It was a Jagro and Panino kinda Tuesday lunch! ๐Ÿ“๐ŸŒฏ
-
-
Started off the meal with the most famous 'Waffles with Berries'. I love it with whipped cream and the chocolate topping. It is extremely sweet so we decided to have the Paninis after the waffles and if you are a weirdo like me, you can order the strawberries separately. It's a definite go to for that sweet lunch fix! 550/= LKR

~Pulled BBQ Chicken Melt~
Gooey cheese melt with pulled BBQ chicken, caramelized onion & coleslaw on crusty bread.
Absolutely loved the amount of meat that was put into it. The flavors definitely complemented each other very well but I personally am not a fan of the caramelized sweet effect so I think that is definitely my first and last time. For those who love that taste then this is a must try! 600/= LKR
-
-
~Chicken Pomodoro Melt~
A crusty cheesy melt piled with herb roasted chicken, oven roasted tomato, pine nut pesto & mayonnaise with fresh spinach and basil.
It was the perfect dose of cheese with chicken that I needed to end the sweetness of the waffles. It gave a lovely herb flavor and I usually do not like that taste but this was so nice I could have kept eating even though I was too full to breathe. It was super good and super filling. 600/= LKR

Thus concludes the review for Simply Strawberries by Jagro and Panino located in 7 Srimath Anagarika Dharmapala Mawatha, Colombo 03.

Hopefully this merry-go-round of memories will stop so I don't have another crap night's sleep. โœจ๐ŸŒŒ

Family of immigrants: my grandfather, mother (back), aunt (front) & grandmother in 1971 after leaving their home country of Sri Lanka for a new life in Melbourne, Australia. ๐ŸŒ
//\\
The White Australia Policy ended four years after their arrival, although they would continue to be called racist slurs, and my dad referred to as a 'black bastard' for marrying my mum. It's funny how often I'm told that I don't look Sri Lankan or that my mother isn't even that dark when her childhood was defined by her ethnicity. She appeared white enough to be allowed into Australia (with a family tree dating back seven generations to Portugese/Dutch ancestry to prove it!) yet she was certainly 'dark enough' for people to actively move away from her on public transport or to feel alien as one of the few people to colour in her secondary school in the 1970s. ๐Ÿƒ

Still so unsure about my thesis project on Sri Lankan Burghers. I just don't have any peace or conviction! I felt so good about my suicide prevention thesis topic and now I'm disheartened by the honours process in general. What to do?! Commiseration appreciated! ๐Ÿ˜•

Family. ๐Ÿ’ž๐ŸŒธ๐Ÿ’–
