The chicken was done perfectly and it was spicy for my sri lankan taste bud. We usually have grilled chicken from those shawarma shops on weekends and they lack spiciness. This was a good flavour. I enjoyed eating. Not to forget the fries. Its a good portion for the unhealthy to complete the fries but then again you can choose your sides i chose fries because i like fries.

Beef escalada doesn’t it look beautiful. I want one of those stands 😦 the beef again was well done and good. Flavour was lemon and spicy. The mushrooms and fries were super good. It was sweet potato fries and my son enjoyed it. So its a sharing platter for mum and son.

I was full but there is nothing as no toom for dessert. So i had to dig in and enjoy. I thought it was chocolate lava but it was a sticky date pudding with hot sauce and ice cream. My son was seated there spooning the ice cream while i enjoyed the cake. Now i found a way to keep him entertained when i travel. Get a tub of ice cream 🙂 i dont give him ice cream.

Galitos is a newly opened restaurant at bay square. They are soon to open a branch in DIFC. I would recommend it to anyone because of the taste of the chicken. That was my exploring of a new restaurant.

Trucks @ The Beach JBR

A walk from home about 8 minutes to the bus stop
A bus ride from there to the metro which took 15 minutes or so
The metro ride was 45 minutes
Finally, the tram took us in 2 minutes to the beach
It was fun but a bit tiring
As I reached it was just a kilometre walk to the beach from the tram
As I entered the beach it was a very warm and friendly atmosphere which welcomed us
The beach was busy with kids playing
Stalls selling lovely stuff
The cafes lined up were busy with customers enjoying the beach view while they had their meals
Behind the beach was the walk and the walk has all sorts of facilities and activities for everyone. They have an area with many fantasy rides and restaurants to suit your budget from high end to the medium range.

The best time to be at the beach is after 4 pm and the sunset view is spectacular
I was in a rush so couldn’t take many photographs

My main attraction was the trucks lined up as a part of Dubai food festival event.
They had “The melting” with traditional poutines and the “shake shack” with delicious fresh burgers while the hollandaise pancakes were there with all sorts of toppings and a juice bar with fresh fruit juices. The “Red tomato” pizza had some crispy woodfire pizzas in the cream-colored truck.
The entire area was lively with some benches and bean bags where the customers enjoyed their food surrounded by trucks, sand in toes, a windy breeze from the sea which was sad of the soon to approach summer. The crescent was there for a few hours enjoying the view and waiting till I captured my first ever photograph of the moon  with my s7 😆

A little about the food I tried
I first headed over to shake shack. Yes, I’ve seen there Instagram and I’ve been craving for a good shake shack burger for a long time. A meal for 2 costs just around 90 dirhams which are very filling and they make the burgers with fresh bright ingredients. Their fries are really crispy and delicious I’d say with cheese or without cheese, they are really good.

I was not hungry but I wanted to try the red tomato pizza too. Yes, I do follow them on Instagram and they make me crave for pizza everyone I stop over. Why are there pizzas so special?
Well, it’s cooked under woodfire and the wood fire aroma makes pizza a bit different.  You have to try it for you to know it.  I’d say if I don’t mind about the quantity I’d go for a red tomato pizza instead of anything else. It really delicious.

I was on a media tasting pass but then my opinion would be same even if I went as a customer.

I would say the long trip which was a walk, bus ride, metro ride and a tram trip was well worth it. The memories are really something to cherish.

The food trucks will be there until the 19th of March if you are in Dubai head over this weekend and enjoy the Dubai food festival.
I hope I took you on a food story ride along the beach at JBR .

3 Restaurants in Colombo

Galadari Shehrazad Restaurant

I’ve been to this restaurant a few many times but this was the first time i visited as a food blogger. Earlier i went to enjoy the food but now i went to blog about it Of course it was a dinner by invitation from a family member.
I couldn’t take much photos but still managed to get my plates. There salad table was super awesome and attractive. They had a soup section, a shawarma stand and a dessert section with the main course.
The seafood pasta and the morocxon lamb was a hit on my plate. They tasted delicious and it’s a must try when ypu visit.

Eastern Wok

Ever since i herd it’s food was of good quality I’ve been wanting to go but time didnt permit with loads of visiting to do after the wedding and some resting. I was craving for chinese and badly wanted to go for one before leaving sri lanka.

Suddenly a relative called up and invited for dinner and when they mentioned Eastern Wok was the location i was so happy and looked forward to visit.  I’ve been to sizzles but never tried eastern wok.

As i entered we were served a 3 course meal which was filling and satisfying.

They had fish, cuttlefish and prawns for mains while a chicken sweet corn soup was a starter  everyone said the biscuit pudding was a hit and i did like it too.

Overall craving for chinese in colombo?

You know eatern wok is the place to be.

Channas

I heard many good reviews about channas. Now if someone says a restaurant has good food at an affordable price i always think of a way to try it out.

I had a dinner out that day but decided to order in some food from channas before i left to dubai the next day. So i ordered naans, tandoori chicken,  paneer butter masala with kulfi for dessert.

The order arrived on time and the food was sent in excellent condition.

The tandoori chicken was a bit too small but taste was good. The naan was too big a worth the price. A naan is sufficient for 2 people.  The kulfi was the hit. It was sent in the exact same way they serve for dine-in customers, in that small clay pot neatly wrapped in a foil and it was frozen and cool amidst half an hour of it’s travel from wellawatte to colombo9.

I came home after my dinner and tried all the food though i was full and tasted the kulfi which melted in my mouth.  It’s was the best and original kulfi. Ive tried kulfi ice cream but I’ve never tried the actual kulfi.

This was so delicious.

There kulfis are a mist try and yes the naan too.
