Kenya and Tanzania offer sumptuous charcoal grilled meats and great seafood dishes as well as a fantastic array of tropical produce from matooke to cassava, papaya to loquat.

Sri Liscious

Scri Liscious combine fragrant spices grown on the island and traditional recipes (with influences from Southern India to Portugal). Our speciality is egg hoppers, which are made in roadside stalls all over Sri Lanka. They are crispy bowl-shaped pancakes made from a batter of rice flour and coconut milk, an egg is poached in the batter and then topped with a range of sambols or chutneys, from mild coconut and lime, to fiery chilli and onion. We also make short-eats, or snacks, such as vegetable roti parcels, fish cutlets and lamb rolls, all made with a special blend of Sri Lankan spices. You will also find the popular street food kottu roti, plus a variety of rice and curry options which change according to the season.

Most of our food is vegetarian or vegan and we have gluten and dairy free options.

High Steaks

High Steaks create steak sandwiches and other less expected dishes, all of which showcase our signature chimichurri. All of our steak is sourced from small, local, free-range herds. We only ever use our favourite cuts (customers' choice of rib eye, onglet or featherblade) which we cut into wafer-thin “Philly style” layers for a seriously quick-cooking, easy-eating, melt-in-the-mouth experience delivered with bags of theatre.

Alongside our steak sandwiches, we also serve our chimichurri in more interesting settings with everything from seriously addictive grilled cheese sandwiches to big juicy tiger prawns depending on the location and the season, so if steak sandwiches aren’t your thing, we’ve got you covered.
