Charming in Every possible way!

Milk & Honey have been around for quite some time and we all knew them for some amazing vegan and more healthy food. Over the years they have made some additions to their menu but they still have their health-conscious values in everything they do.

 

Milk & Honey is part of a trio which includes a gorgeous children’s toy/book shop and a deli that carries some amazing products. The ambience is a combination of playful, whimsical and comforting. Although the restaurant space isn’t the biggest the outdoor seating with the colourful furniture makes for a space that anyone would enjoy.

When it comes to food Milk & Honey has a big focus on healthy eating so sourcing organic produce is a big part of their process and as you might soon read even their most indulgent dishes have a healthy touch to it.

 

Drinks 

 

Digestive – LKR 350

At first glance, this drink was quite the statement with its rich vibrant colour due to the turmeric. The flavour had a punch to it too with the passion fruit flavour being in the forefront with the slight essence of pineapple. This made for an amazing accompaniment for the meal and true to its name it helped me eat more.

 

Rosemary Lemonade – LKR 350

This was not a flavour combination that I was used to so I was intrigued, to say the least. Upon tasting it I was glad that this was what I chose. The lemonade itself was extremely refreshing but not too overpowering and the rosemary added an almost floral flavour to the drink. This was hands down one of my favourites.

 

Peanut Butter Milkshake – LKR 450

I’m a big fan of milkshakes so this was something I had to try out. With the first sip, I was hit by the sweet, salty taste of the peanut butter and I loved it! The flavour of the ice cream base slowly creeps in later and altogether it makes for an amazing drink. Although the portion wasn’t the biggest it was still quite satisfying.

 

Mains 

 

Rainbow Salad Bowl – LKR 1000

True to its name this was one colourful dish and it was HUGE! By far one of the biggest salad portions I’ve come across and one of the most flavourful. Contrary to what we expect, the ingredients were not mixed together as they each had a distinct flavour that had to be savoured alone. My favourites were the pickled carrots and quinoa.

 

Spicy Pumpkin, Paneer and Raita Wrap  – LKR 600

As a fan of paneer, this was something I had to try and the district South Asian flavours were quite unexpected but extremely enjoyable. Although not a massive portion it was quite filling and it had a lot, and I mean a lot of greens which was somewhat overpowering.

 

Full Breakfast – LKR 950

Who doesn’t love a good fry-up? Milk & Honey offers quite a decent version of the full English and for the most part, it was quite nice. The dish was quite filling and the homemade sausage was simply wonderful. The baked beans were not the usual and the new flavours were quite pleasant. The only thing I would change would be some extra meat.

 

Vege Lasagna – LKR 800

This was off their specials for the day and once again we were served with a gigantic portion with a hearty side of salad. The lasagna was amazingly flavourful and although it was a bit messy to eat it had a good bite to it. The green salad that came with the lasagna needs an entry of its own. The dressing was to die for and dare I say, I enjoyed it more than the lasagna itself.

 

Crumb Fish with Sweet Potato Wedges – LKR 1100

By far the best thing we ordered the fish was moist and flaky with the crispy exterior building up one amazing dish. The sauce that came with it only helped to make things better. The sweet potato wedges were also quite satisfying. This is something I’ll most certainly be going back to.

 

Desserts 

 

Sago Pudding – LKR 450

This is a dessert that I will remember for a long time. The dessert consisted of sago, coconut jam (pani pol) and caramelised banana and each component added something amazing to the overall dish. The sago was not too sweet and helped offset the intense flavour of the other components and the coconut jam helped add more texture.

 

Pineapple and Coconut Sorbet – LKR 500

Everyone loves a good cold dessert and when there was a coconut sorbet up for grabs we had to try it out. The sorbet was quite refreshing and had quite a potent coconut flavour. The taste of pineapple was quite subtle adding an extra dimension of complexity.

 

Milk & Honey is one of those places that you would want to return to time and time again. From its storybook-like interior to the actual storybooks for sale this little shop has a lot to offer so if you’re looking for something healthy but also want to be indulgent this is a great place to go to. 

Tip – Their salad bowls are AMAZING and you need to also check on their daily specials.
