The city of Colombo is an awesome place if you are on the hunt of different types of food. Beach side restaurants, lake side to garden to five star with local and a wide range of international cuisine will vow your taste buds.
While on the quest of finding an early dinner on a Monday I came across this restaurant which is indeed blessed with the spectacular view of the Indian ocean.. I got myself into this place right when the sun was setting and managed to capture few beautiful shots of the sunset. For those of you who are familiar with Colombo, this restaurant Whight and Co lies on the marine drive, Aloe Avenue, Colombo 3 facing the scenic ocean.
On the hike for some chocolate into my system, I ordered a hot chocolate while my friend who is a coffee fanatic ordered a cappuccino. My hot chocolate was perfectly blended and my friend was totally happy about the coffee. Then we learnt that they grow their coffee in Sri Lanka and it is in-house blended and given to their guests. Quite impressive!
After our evening chat, we ordered the main dishes, which were brought in pretty fast by a friendly staff with a nice smile. You can choose from burgers to salads to nachos to rice in their menu. The first thing that grabbed my attention was baked potatoes in the menu. It was so delicious, which was baked with some cheese on top and with leaks pieces, which added a pleasant flavor to the dish. I loved the side dish, which came with it as well. Potatoes with cheese might sound a bit away from a healthy meal for dinner but I could give it a miss for my healthy dinner for today. To add to that I also tried what my friend ordered which looked too delicious not to try!
Fish, which was wrapped in a banana leaf, was delicate and could just melt in my mouth! Rice and the veggie dish was a perfect blend for the mouthwatering fish dish. Overall, the food was awesome and even though the food here could be slightly pricy it was a worthy food experience in the pleasant ambiance.
Good food coming with a lovely presentation while you enjoy the scenic beauty of the Indian ocean lapping its waves on the city of Colombo!
