I Colombo, Indiranagar

“This place is new in town (Double Path, Indiranagar; 088678 25223) but I can confirm that their Sri Lankan Christmas cake is absolutely delicious. It is packed with precious fruits, orange peel, preserved ginger and has the aroma of tropical spices. There’s no tutti frutti or artificial caramel color, which so many plum cakes are filled with these days. It keeps well for months, so you can enjoy a taste of Christmas long after the festivities.” Priya Bala, writer and food critic
