Raisa has a review of the new Rio’s Ice Cream truck on Marine Drive. Rio’s (and Lingam’s) are the bomb ice cream spots in Jaffna. I always stop there when I’m in town, as does everybody, so it’s great that they’ve set up a truck in little Jaffna, Wellawatte, CMB.
Here’s a bit from Raisa’s review:
Try one of the specials. The Rio special, for example, is four scoops of ice cream- fruit and nut, vanilla, mango, and milk, with a healthy sprinkling of nuts on top. While you can find the other flavours at pretty much any ice cream parlour/supermarket easily, the milk ice cream is quite unusual- and delicious, too. The ice cream overall is sweet and tasty- lighter, somehow, than the varieties you find in Colombo.
But the Rio special isn’t just about the ice cream. Once you dig past the ice cream you’ll find cubes of jelly and fruit in there too. All of this for just Rs. 100. Be warned though- the Special’s very sweet, and liable to send you into an instant sugar coma if you eat it too fast, so it’s probably best to share, or just eat slow. (YAMU)
I passed the truck yesterday on Marine Drive. We’ve geotagged the location as much as possible but I’m assuming it moves. It’s definitely worth checking out.
