This is part 2 of my day trip in Colombo. You can find part 1 here, where I visited the Plâté art gallery that also sells art supplies and the Sri Lanka Tea Board where I found some fun packaged black tea!
From there, we went to a bookshop, because no trip is complete without visiting one!
Wellawatte Fruit & Vegetable Market
And here are some random street shots of Colombo:
Our last stop was the local candy shop, Faluda House, popular for their Indian sweets. You won’t find any gobstoppers or licorice straps here. They sell them in varying box sizes at set prices. Aside from the sweets they also sell samosas(a fried, savoury snack with filling. In this case, chicken or mutton), which they make themselves, syrup and salty chili. I love their samosas, although they can be a wee bit saltier than I like. Their sweets are also a bit too sweet for me, but taste good. Sometimes I feel like they taste almost the same xD
The shop itself is very minimal and a bit narrow. I did not appreciate the swarm of flies at their entrance. It’s so off-putting, not to mention, unsanitary. The locals here don’t seem to mind flies though!
I’m curious, what are the local specialties in your town? Did you spot any books you love or are reading currently in my bookshop pictures?
