By Cheranka Mendis There really is no one way to describe what Arabian Knights is in a few words. It was spicy when it had to be and so tasty that we had to finish it off – despite the tears running down our cheeks. It was fresh. It was refreshing. It was unique. Arabian Knights (AK) really is a place to stop by (or order in) if anyone is in the mood for some authentic Arabian ‘akil’ (food). Born out of two people’s extensive travel across Middle East and North Africa and their passion for food, Arabian Knights will complete one year of service on 13 August, exactly a month from today. And what a year it has been. For the owners – Naqqash Jaleel and Tareq Al Khalil – it’s been...

By Rashika Fazali Feeding a passion and having the right business strategies is evident for a successful business. This is what Scrumptious Founder Nilusha de Silva exactly did. Rather than driving that passion empty-handed, she instead did a lot of analysing on making the right desserts. After all, she is a business analyst. Recently, Nilusha received the finalist award at the Venture Engine 2013 for her business strategy that aims at driving Scrumptious to the top. Her business strategies are simple. She wants to make consistent quality food at affordable prices, but for that she had to do a lot of analysing.  She said: “Many food places start off with good quality products, but the quality...

By Rashika Fazali The days when diamonds were a girl’s best friend is long gone. Today, they have been replaced by cupcakes! Well, believe it or not, I know colleagues and friends who would cheer up at the sight of cupcakes because cupcakes have that effect. By some weird rule, cupcakes seem to have a gender – female. I don’t think you see a lot of men eating cupcakes, but they buy them for their ladies, mothers, daughters, etc. Polly from ‘Bake that Thing’ noticed this exact thing and decided to open a home bakery. As she believes that women need to treat themselves with a cupcake, she stated that it’s not just about having a cupcake at the end of the day. She said, “Maybe you...

While mothers throughout the world always insist on providing their children with the very best in tasty and nutritious food, children themselves are very often choosy about what they eat. Driven by taste, they prefer ‘junk food’, with excessive sugar, salt and high calorific content with little nutritional value. Providing them with a well-balanced and healthy meal is a constant challenge for today’s busy mothers. The sedentary lifestyles of school going children, with more hours spent watching TV and fewer hours in outdoor play have further resulted in obesity becoming a serious problem in Sri Lanka. On the other hand, recent statistics of the Ministry of Health shows that, approximately...
