One of the most authentic noodle places in Colombo, Laksa Noodle Bar serves some unique noodle preparations. To name a few, the prawn curry laksa lemak prepared with Malaysia spice coconut milk broth, egg, and bean thread noodles, fried tofu, bean sprouts, and bok choy is as close to the ones you would find in the streets of Malaysia-the standard is priced at Rs 1405. As complex as it mind sound, this dish explodes with flavour and can be also considered as a comfort food.
The noodle bar is located on Thimbirigasyaya Road, Colombo, 05.
02 Wok To Box
We initially fell for the cute packaging- Noodles packed to the brim in cute little Chinese take away boxes. Unlike the other mentions in the article, these guys let you customize your noodles, from the base to the to sauce to the meats you want. We went for an egg noodle base with chicken and prawn, spiced up with the kochi sauce which costed us Rs 900. With plenty of chicken and prawn mixed through, it was a good deal and we were left very satisfied.
The Wok to Box is located at Nedimala, Dehiwela.
01 Wayside Thai Café
The Wayside does an epic Pad Thai Noodles loaded with stir fried chicken and peanuts for that crunch factor. It is one of the best Pad thai’s we’ve come across up to date. As the name suggests, they serve Thai cuisine and they do it well. Their dishes are very reasonably priced and the portions are very filling. The Pad thai is Rs 800.
Located at Caldera Gardens, Dehiwala-Mount Lavinia.
