Singapore-inspired cuisine with a unique culinary experience!

Food Studio at Colombo City Center is the all-new dining space in town, and Grub Sri Lanka has a sweet spot there, serving up a range of delicious Singapore-inspired Western food. Although their stall (Stall 3) is tucked away in a corner, the dishes stand out from the crowd. Originally Singaporean, Grub has now expanded to Sri Lanka, bringing in a delicious culinary experience.
They currently have a well curated menu, focused on bringing each dish to perfection before expanding even more. They even plan to start a Singaporean Grill soon. Every dish has unique ingredients, many of which are sourced from Singapore. We tried out a range of what they had and here’s what we thought!


‘Har Cheong’ Chicken Burger – LKR 800
Consisting of batter fried chicken marinated in prawn paste and garlic aoli (which was rather interesting), the ‘Har Cheong’ Chicken Burger was well worth the price! Grub didn’t hold back on the portions, and we were delighted with both the size and flavour of the crispy chicken in the burger.

Grilled Chicken Pesto Pasta – LKR 700
Grilled chicken with linguine tossed in housemade spicy basil pesto, the dish came with four pieces of succulent chicken atop the pasta – presentation done right! The chicken was cooked to perfection, with a crispy delicious skin. This one was completely worth the price.

Spicy Seafood Sambal Pasta – LKR 900
Consisting of linguine tossed in homemade sambal, with a varied mix of seafood including squid, prawns, and fish, the Grub is attempting to cater to the Sri Lankan palette with this one! We loved the concept of the sambal pasta and it was definitely spicy; even our taste buds were on fire with this one. Although we loved the spiciness and Grub has done a good job of integrating the Lankan flavours into a Singaporean dish, this was probably our least favourite dish of the lot. Nonetheless, a definite positive was the portions of seafood in the dish; Grub doesn’t hold back!

Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo
All we can say is: heaven on a plate! The Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo was creamy (but not too creamy, either), flavourful (yet not packed with unnecessary ingredients), and interspersed with delicious chunks of chicken. When we dropped by, this dish was not yet included in their menu, but should now be available. If you do happen to drop by Grub, order this and you won’t regret it.


All in all, our experience at Grub was incredibly positive and we’ll certainly be heading their way again if we find ourselves at Colombo City Center (especially for that Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo!)

City Center has a range of stalls serving up different food so stay tuned for our full review of everything they’ve got to offer, so you know where to go and what to try out when you drop by!
