Crab Tales is a home cook that finds the fleshiest crab, cooks it according to a delicious recipe that had been in the family for many generations, and delivers to your home. They use succulent mud crabs harvested from local lagoons, and infuse them with a good dose of spices, so there's a lot of meat and flavour to taste. The gravy itself is quite creamy and rich, and you can scoop it up with the fresh roast paan they provide with it.

Artisan Diletto is all about luscious Chocolate Biscuit Puddings (CBP). Colombo has its fair share of CBP but this one knocks the ball out of the park. At the moment, they have four kinds of CBPs - Classic, Mocha, Mint Chocolate and Milo, that share the same silky smooth, glossy, and luxuriously creamy base, enriched with dark chocolate, cashew nuts and chocolate chips. The Mocha one has a dash of coffee that perfectly complements the chocolate, while the minty kick in the Mint Chocolate is quite subtle and refreshing.
