Café Che, Colombo



I love discovering new places to eat and it even surprises my colleagues here that I've been able to get around and visit some of the famous places. Well, what can I say... if you give me a web-browsing enabled device, internet access and GOOGLE, I'll be able to find anything and everything!

On my 2nd weekend I visited Café Che, which is one arm of the 5 restaurants/cafes of the Harpo's group founded by Harpo Gooneratne, a former entertainer to now restaurant(s) proprietor. Under the Harpo's Restaurants & Cafes are 5 different f&b concepts- The Bay Leaf which is said to be one of the places to go for Italian, The Commons is a coffee house, The Park Street Mews is a fusion concept, Harpo's Pizza creating a local branding for pizzas, and last but not least the rebellious Café Che.







As the decos and pictures suggest, it's a theme cafe based on the legendary revolutionary and rebellious activist Che Guevera.


Ginger Ale- Rs. 100 (RM3)


Complimentary bread


Soup of the day: Italian Minestrone- Rs. 250 (RM7)


Marinated strips of chicken, lettuce, tomato & mayo wrap- Rs. 350 (RM10)


Chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and rice chocolate sauce- Rs. 325 (RM9)

The menu comprises the usual sandwiches, salads, soups and pastas but also a selection of Mexican and Cuban favourites and also local cuisines like rotti. The food is pretty straight to the point, nothing pretentious and appropriately portioned.

Café Che is also located along Stratford Avenue neighboring a few antique stores and galleries- Gandhara and Hermitage.

Now the three sisters are going places, jet setting around and writing about food blogs.

Keep up the good work as it is mighty interesting.

Uncle Lau,
Well u might be surprised that I started embracing blogs since about 8 yrs ago and I was the first amongst the 3 sisters to do so..... But alas I think Eiling writes better, hv more diverse/ interesting stories and bigger following than I do. Anyway, I'm just lucky to be able to get a 3 month posting in SL and I want to share this with my readers (there're not many stories about SL on blogs).

Eh, wipe wipe the soup plate a bit first ma :p

I think I have a bandanna of Che...

eiling lim said...

looks like a nice place for some chilling session. wah next year you must take me there!

YilingL said...

jason,
Never wipe wipe also looks ok mah... I've always seen this Che icon around (like Obama's Change poster or Bob Marley jamaica colors) but never knew who he was and why he is so famous... thanks to wiki!

Eiling,
Yes while i continue finding nice places to eat and chill, u can continue staying tune and let me know which places u wanna go when u come here.

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually

too complicated and very broad for me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll

Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I
needed to ask. Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a lot of work?
I am completely new to blogging however I do write in my diary everyday.
I'd like to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any ideas or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

I think that everything wrote made a lot of sense.
However, what about this? what if you added a little content?
I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a title that grabbed folk's attention?
I mean "Caf� Che, Colombo" is a little boring. You ought to
glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news titles to get people interested. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about everything've got to say.
In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

I think that what you composed was actually very reasonable.
However, what about this? what if you were to create a killer headline?
I am not saying your content is not solid, but what if you
added a headline that makes people want more? I mean "Caf� Che, Colombo" is a little
boring. You might glance at Yahoo's home page and see how they create post titles to grab viewers interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people interested about what you've written.
In my opinion, it might make your website a little livelier.
