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.

  1. mark please try to show us the menu and prices for every restaurant 🙂 thanks a lot for those amazing videos that help every traveller

  2. Does everyone in the comments understand that he completed this food tour with a food tourist group? Yes, the dining was expensive however they paid for the setting with the group! Food looked amazing to me Mark! I understand that sometimes you pay more for experience.

  3. $165 just for ONE crab? or is it $165 per person(for the whole meal)?? If its only for one crab, then that is def wayyyy too expensive. I dont think I would pay that even if they were the top 3 most tasty restaurant in the world.

  4. Omg ?Mark those River prawns ? and The Crab ? look SO amazing – I can Almost smell the Butters and Garlic steam as They are being cooked lol

    Cooking here as I watch and I was Using Fresh peppers ? and Garlic in lite oil with butter
    I want to Come to Sri Lanka ??
    To enjoy that Restaurant as well

  5. I wish I was Micah the most travelled toddler in the world. He will fair well in life with this kind of exposure. You are blessed Sir to have a wife that supports you. Blessings from Swaziland in Southern Africa??❤️

  6. Folks! This resturant belongs to two famous cricket players and that's why the price is insanly high. Don't go there unless you are super rich. You can get the same texture and flavor in another less famous local resturant for 1/10 of that price.
