Turkish Pizza House closed down yesterday, unexpectedly, without prior notice even to regulars. No reason known yet.

Hayri Ozen writes on Facebook: "Dear all, Turkish Pizza House has to say Good Bye to u. Thanks for all your support."

It'll become "Lamma Grill Express", according to Lamma Grill!

Christmas Set Dinner @ Jing Jing yesterday. We both just love Marlon's cooking and Joyce's always cheerful presence! They are both what makes us regulars in Jing Jing Bar & Restaurant. We're eagerly awaiting the re-opening of Joyce's Diesel's across the street next year sometime!

The non-standard chestnut gravy sauce and Yorkshire pudding were oh-so-delicious and made for dunking!
Almost perfect appetiser and main course, no idea on how you could improve on these (except to cross-cut the big Brussels sprouts, so they boil softly all through.)

We even liked the flavourful, but light onion soup with croutons and the astonishingly light blackcurrant cheesecake (not pictured).

We'll be back for next Christmas. Still available today, Christmas Day...

Another Sri Lankan Night in The Waterfront!
We liked the last one so much (Sitting in Santa's Sleigh), we might attend again.

Plus an Island Bar Concert next month by a new band, all the way from Australia. Brad's friends?
The Hummers

...and Wendell continues to be the weekly house musician of The Island Bar!

News from Bella Vista:

"Bella Vista is changing its name to "JUST KITCHEN". Basically we're planning to supply Western and Mediterranean foods. Such as kebabs, pasta, salad etc. Of course, drinks too.

We also going to renovate the outside garden. But for CNY we have to delay. Because we ordered in China and it will all arrive after their CNY holidays only. When the garden will be set up it will be a very beautiful and relaxing place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee and drinks, of course.

We'll have a 2-hour "Happy Hour" everyday for draft beer. For the soft opening, we offer all-day happy hours and only buy 1 get 1 free (For draft beer only).

Anyway, we also offering 20 percent discount for Friday opening for all kind of dishes."


Opening drinks tonight, CNY Eve, Fri, Jan 27, 2017:

Just Kitchen has just soft-launched for now, a review and pictures will follow in a few weeks when their garden will be done.

"We've already changed the menu and we are going to set up a lovely garden.

Many Lamma Residents visited us yesterday and we good very nice feedback. We wish to set up a lovely dining restaurant and cafe-bar suitable for families and Lamma residents especially."

Good news from Just Kitchen which replaced Bella Vista, soft-opening on Jan 27. These lunches look like great deals!

Awaiting the furniture and decorations for their outdoor area for the "hard opening".

I just got reminded of The Waterfront's (almost) weekly Sri Lankan Night Buffet on Fridays from 6pm.

Reserve to guarantee a seat. Last time I passed by it was full, including large groups of Lammaites inviting their off-island friends!

See their newly expanded menu here...

Plus their Instagram account with lots of tasty, hunger-inducing, professional photos.

Yes, Mr. & Mrs. Blue Goose will go to great lengths to promote their friendly-neighbourhood bar & restaurant!
Good on them!

The comments from their many friends are even better:

Leaflet picked up in the Corner 84 bakery just opposite Just Green.

They've also got freshly-made coffee and ice creams.
