Nelum Kole Restaurant - To begin the day we started off at Nelum Kole Restaurant, a Sri Lankan food restaurant serving a massive buffet of different Sri Lankan food dishes. Overall, the food was good, but not the best Sri Lankan food I had. Flavors tasted too similar to each other. It is a good place to taste variety though.
Dilmah Tea Lounge - After lunch we headed to a Dilmah Tea Lounge and drank a few teas all of which were very good.
Ministry of Crab - Rated as one of Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants, Ministry of Crab is one of the most iconic restaurant serving seafood and especially Sri Lankan crabs in Colombo. It’s a high end restaurant, with prices that go with it, but I do have to admit that it was extremely tasty. The river shrimp, the black pepper crab was delicious. Price - about 30,000 LKR ($165.53) per OMG crab - I think it’s overpriced - but it is good.

When you are eating Sri Lankan rice and curry you have to mix it well before eating. If you are not mixing it well, you will never get the Wright taste of the food. by the way I'm Sri Lankan. 😊😊😊

I have had amazing coconut curry crab in Malaysia for $10! $165 is ludicrous !!
i never realized how imposing it must be on the rest of the patrons this must be. wtf is with the light?

I always have to have a plate of food in front of me, before I watch Mark's videos because the food looks so delicious I have to fool myself, I'm eating the exact same dish. I get so hungry! Thanks for showing us delicious foods from around the world. I wish we had those restuarant here were I live.
