THE CAULDRON combines all good things to give Colombo a quintessential café experience. Since its founding this curated space has dished out delicacies that have gone on to become the city’s favourites. However, the founders of THE CAULDRON now reveal the secret ingredient of their success story. To them it is not only the quirky food or the curious atmosphere of the café, but also their young and passionate team that make everything possible. “Pol Roti Kottu, Kochchi Chicken Waffles and Homemade Meatballs would’ve not been possible if not for our small team of six dedicated individuals led by Manager Sampath Dissanayake,” added the founders of this eclectic café located at Stratford Avenue, Kirulapone. 

The vibrant team at THE CAULDRON with warm smiles adds much value to the beautiful ambience of this café. “Customers loved our soulful menu that was created with a lot of involvement from the entire team as we were at the owners’ kitchen testing products with focus groups with a lot of trial and error long before we had completed construction work at our café and the final concept of THE CAULDRON was fully formed” said manager Sampath during an interview with him and his team. The team boasts of the quality standards at THE CAULDRON with much emphasis on sticking to recipes and hygiene standards. When asked about service training the team responds gleefully, “Service is not a job for us as we feel ownership for the brand and we do what we can to make it the best café experience in Colombo for the ‘young’ and the ‘young at heart’.”

THE CAULDRON has gained instant popularity since they opened doors in October last year, mostly due to their simple but delicious menu that consists of soulful dishes such as the Kochchi and Smoked Chicken Stuffed Waffles, Pol Roti Burgers and the famed Pol Roti Kottu. They later launched more interesting additions like the Chicken Ham, Cheese and Potato Stuffed Waffles, Homemade Meatballs Spaghetti, Waffle Wrap with Thai Style Chicken and Caramelised Onion as well as Roast Paan Sandwiches to name a few. Speaking of the future Sampath also says “Colombo hasn’t seen the best of THE CAULDRON yet as we have a lot more to offer in terms of menu as well as several events for our customers to be part of our story that combines all good things”.

Taking sides – on the side of the law

Monday, 19 November 2018

I have rarely if ever empathised with the Sri Lanka Police Department. But when I saw those hapless cops ducking chilli bombs in Parliament, my heart went out to those whom I had previously seen as simply being PC Plods or Mr Goons. Sorry to say that
