Ape Kade

Delivery only

A home chef who whips up burgers, shawarmas and rice-based specialities.

Lots and lots of cloud kitchens seem to bloom in every corner of Colombo, especially during this pandemic. Ape Kade is one such place, which we discovered on PickMe Food. 


We spotted a collection of burgers, shawarma, a few rice-varieties and a dessert. Almost all of them were available, so we opted for a Tandoori Chicken Shawarma (Rs. 450) and the Ape Double Kick Beef Burger (Rs. 799). Each dish was offered with a side of cassava chips.

The Tandoori Chicken Shawarma was quite generous with chicken. We enjoyed catching a whiff of smokiness there, a lovely tang too, all thanks to the chunks of pickles stuffed in it. However, the roti itself was a little doughy.

The cassava chips on the side were salty, slightly spicy, but also, kinda soggy.
The Ape Double Kick Beef Burger featured two homemade beef patties, a fried egg, a slice of cheese, pickles, onions, tomato, lettuce and herb labneh.

While the patties were all right - soft with a good amount of seasoning, they weren't exactly beef-y, and had a crumbly texture. There was a balance of flavour though. A good crunch from the veggies, a herby touch from herb labneh, and a bold tangy kick from pickles, while the egg and cheese adding a lot of moisture. 


All in all, it's a convenient option for food and not a bad one. Their food has good aspects to it, but the flavours and textures can certainly improve a bit more.
