How many times have you woken up in the middle of the night, fumbled your way in the darkness to the refrigerator, only to find nothing tempting enough to eat? Even if you were to drive out to grab a quick bite, options are so limited for the city dweller.
Or maybe you are one of those who just partied the night away and needs to tuck in to some munchies before hitting the sack. Regardless of which category you fall into Sri Lanka’s premier culinary hub Waters Edge has the answer.
‘Night Kade’ by Waters Edge is the latest addition to the waterfront hotel’s truly international food offering. This one is purely for the satisfaction of those who crave Sri Lankan street food at the wee hours of the morning.
Open from 12 midnight to 5:00 a.m. Friday and Saturday and till 4:00 a.m. on all other days, the ‘Night Kade’ will serve up traditional favourites such as mouth-watering ‘kottu’ with a Waters Edge twist. The freshly-prepared endemic Sri Lankan dish is packed with home-made ‘rotti’, fresh seasonal vegetables, chunks of meat of your choice and of course the all-important gooey-cheese that keeps it all together.
And then there are the staples like ‘kiribath’, roast ‘paan’ and string hoppers, egg ‘rotti’ and parata served piping hot with chicken, fish, dhal or potatoes. All these meals come with complimentary and must-have ‘pol’ sambol, ‘kata’ sambol or ‘seeni’ sambol.
Wash it all down with the good ol’ lime soda or an ice-cream cone if you dare. Every day at the stroke of midnight the BoardWalk and Bavarian Garden will be transformed to the Night Kade with seating under the stars. If you do choose to stay on till closing time then a glimpse of the rising sun just might be the perfect ending for an eventful night.
The Night Kade is open from yesterday.
