If you're looking for a clean, charming and authentic meal in Jaffna, we highly recommend the vegetarian Malayalan Cafe.
We dropped in at the Java Lounge in Bambalapitiya the other day, and it's actually pretty good. They've got an accessible location, good coffee and some awesome desserts.
Frozen is a 'gourmet' ice cream place at Urban Kitchen. The prices are fine and they've got some interesting options on their menu.
Giovanni's is a little Italian pizza place run by a chef who uses his own recipes, and serves fresh from a clay oven.
Tea Avenue is a very cosy stop on Barnes Place to have a good cup of flavoured tea and some bready goods. The prices are good and the ambience is suited for all kinds of meetups.
Arthur's pizza is now a pub, too. They do their own take on localised pizza.
Good Market isn't just once a week anymore. Besides at Diyatha Uyana (Thursdays) and Racecourse (Saturdays), you can now get Good Market's fresh, organic food straight from local vendors, on Lakpahana…
The Weras Ganga park is a cool outdoors food-court in Bellanwila, one of many affordable hangout spots popping up in Colombo lately. The food is good, the range is wide, and if the weather is cool the Weras…
For those looking for healthy food in Colombo, the choices are limited, but The Salad Bar in Rajagiriya is looking to change that. They're a tiny stall that offers a range of salads at affordable…
Agra is another one of those rare fine dining Indian restaurants in Colombo. They're not cheap but we think their food is definitely worth the price.
Cloud Red is the newest and highest rooftop bar in Colomb. The view from the top is spectacular, their cocktails are good and so is the food. The drinks are a bit pricey but with the ambience we…
Pranzo has an amazing view and serves pretty good Italian and 'Sritalian' fare.
Dilmah t-Lounge at the Arcade is pretty similar to their outlet in Chatham Street. The food is good, and the space is less crowded but the service isn't great.
Navayuga is a pretty nice Indian restauran. Set inside what seems to have once been a charming house, it's cosy, and their menu is pretty wide.

Dushy's at the Good Market (Diyatha Uyana) is a small new stall that sells yummy organic health food. We tried out what they had, and we left stuffed, and not feeling guilty for a change!
Panino specialises in sandwiches. In melts, to be specific. They also have a killer hot sauce.
Hotel Rolex and its misleading name are an experience not to be missed whilst in Jaffna. Hot, juicy biriyanis and sugary juices. This is legit Northern saivar kade territory.
