Wine & Dine in Colombo – A Rainbow of Choices

In the isle of Sri Lanka, your adventures will take you beyond tropical pleasures to places where the food is beyond compare. The capital of the country is a meeting place for all cultures and in this busy city the kitchens are even busier! Wondering where to start your gastronomical journey in a delightfully ‘tipsy’ fashion? Start at Cinnamon Red Colombo an interesting Colombo City hotel that balances luxury with affordability. As far-fetched as it would seem to maintain a balance of this kind, the two restaurants and the rooftop bar serve as proof of the uniqueness of the hotel. Dine at “Stirred” and “Flavoured”, step onto the elevator to be taken to the rooftop. At “Cloud Red”, you can sip a boozy concoction of your preference while enjoying the breathtaking skyline of Colombo. Such views would only intensify your urge to wander through the city in search of extraordinary restaurants and bars of a similar kind.

Cinnamon Grand Colombo should be next on your list. The hotel houses an incredible amount of restaurants that specialize in food from around the world. You name it, they have it. The Lagoon is one such restaurant that adds a spin to all the seafood you love. Out in the open, you can also choose to indulge in some Sri Lankan treats. Nuga Gama is a neat village that serves up an authentic and mouth watering array of island dishes. Finally watch your favourite game at the Cheers Pub with a glass of beer or fruity cocktail in hand.

It would be a pity if you end your food safari in Colombo without exploring the restaurants at Cinnamon Lakeside. Drift towards the lake and you will find the hotel’s star attraction, 7 degrees North. Here’s a place where you can wine and dine in style. Sushi fans will also be delighted to find that the lobby lounge in the hotel magically transforms into a sushi bar. Make it a point to witness the magic.
Dining and enjoying a simple drink in Colombo would be an unending voyage, but at least you know you have started in just the right places.
