August 6, 2021 at 7:07 PM

Submarines or subs is a personal favourite for many. When introduced in Sri Lanka there were only a few places serving it, one of them were Dinemore. Today, many places are serving this and some have put their own twist to it too. Foodwire lists down where to find good and affordable submarines.

05 Dinemore

As mentioned in the beginning, Dinemore is one of the earliest places to serve submarines. The brand created likeness and craving to the famous shrimp submarine.  Even though many have come after, still the Dinemore subs are considered the best, replacing their taste and flavour isn’t easy.

The portions are huge, the prices are incredibly affordable, and what is good about it, is the consistency of quality.  The shrimp sub is in demand but isn’t available in most outlets. The price range of submarines starts from Rs 550 onward. Hopefully, the shrimp sub can be found in all its outlets.

There are more than six branches, and the main branches are located at Thurstan Road and Wellawatte, Boswell Place.
