Tea Avenue down Jawatta Road, a recent addition to the popular Tea Avenue franchise, has swiftly gained recognition as a must-visit cafe.
Meatless Mondays Sri Lanka explored the plant-based options on its menu recently, starting with the delectable Vegan Burger and following up with a brand new addition to its menu – the scrumptious Vegan Salad.
Vegan Burger: exceeds expectations
Understandably, our first choice from the menu was the Vegan Burger. Who can resist a burger? We’re glad we didn’t resist this one!
Crafted with a medley of mushroom and soya meat, this burger exceeded our expectations. The combination of spices and flavours resulted in a mouthwatering experience that left us craving more. The chunky texture of the patty was the most impressive aspect of the burger, which was incredibly satisfying and filling.
Undoubtedly, the Veggie Burger is a must-try when visiting Tea Avenue.
Vegan Salad: fresh and delicious
The latest plant-based option on the menu at Tea Avenue, the Vegan Salad, was our next pick and it was a refreshing treat.
A delightful combination of the freshest ingredients of batter-fried avocado, cucumber, tomato, broccoli, red onion, and salad greens, topped with a tangy pesto sauce and accompanied with vegan toast, this dish makes for a nutritious and filling lunch or light dinner.
This unique plant-based salad is a healthier alternative to the Vegan Burger for those looking for a low-carb option and is perfect for warm and sunny afternoons in Colombo, ensuring good nutrition and culinary satisfaction without the accompanying heaviness of carb-loaded lunches.
Outstanding customer service
Although the cafe was fully occupied when we arrived, the customer service at Tea Avenue Jawatta was exceptional. The staff was welcoming and courteous, despite the intense hustle and bustle.
They consistently checked on us to ensure that we were enjoying our food and accommodated any additional requests with a smile. The level of attentiveness and care certainly enhanced our dining experience.
Tea Avenue Jawatta may have limited vegan options, but what it offers is undoubtedly worth trying out. Both the Vegan Burger, a hearty meal packed with flavour, and the fresh and zesty Vegan Salad, are dishes we can recommend without hesitation.
Another plant-based option available on the menu that we are yet to try but are very keen on is the Polos Curry Sandwich, which sounds very appealing.
The warm and attentive customer service adds an extra layer of delight to the dining experience.
Whether you’re a vegan, a food enthusiast, or simply looking to explore new culinary delights, Tea Avenue Jawatta is a must-visit destination. Embark on a vegan journey at Tea Avenue Jawatta and let your taste buds be pleasantly surprised!
