Colombo’s funniest restaurant sign

Finally got a decent picture of it from a speeding chariot. It is located in Mt Lavania on the Galle road – at the turn off to the Mt.Lavania hotel. Casserole? Is that really a romantic dish? If there’s any rationale behind this design I don’t get it πŸ˜‰ Also if anyone has a picture of a sign cheesier than this please post a like to it. The comment box below awaits.

Funniest sign in Colombo

  1. I have a cheesy sign to add, I took a photo of it but I can’t post in the comment section. Here along the highway in El Paso, Texas, there’s a giant billboard for DNA testing with a photo of an adorable little boy about 3- or 4- years old and the headline: IS HE REALLY YOURS? WHY NOT MAKE SURE …


  2. Life With Buck: Not a problem just put it on your site and let me know the URL, I’ll link to it – even if its not in Sri Lanka πŸ˜‰

    RD & AzraelThe scary part of me is that somebody went through a lot of trouble to put up that sign (photo shoot etc) without realising the humour of it. Or maybe they did.

    workisboring There has to be a vegetarian version of those dishes πŸ˜‰


  3. I used to pass that sign on the way to and from work every day and everytime i’d see it i’d just sigh a simple “wtf” and continue on. I was curious, but not curious enough to go in there. Wonder if anyone’s actually been in!


  4. Angel: I think Greasy Hair Casserole is their speciality :mrgreen:
    Vindi:Something for a social anthropology analysis project perhaps πŸ˜‰
    rastiadu: Seems this sign is one of those things that make the commute interesting while at the same time could lead (on the long term) to a phobia about Casserole..


  5. I am at work so I can’t see the picture. What does it say?

    That DNA billboard sounds hilarious. Imagine the sheer Othelloesque doubt and paranoia it would cause among male drivers πŸ˜€


  6. Yup. I often wondered why they chose to illustrate a restaurant with a name like that with a picture like that. It’s like they are circling the table, each one trying to be the first to get at their straw, in some mating ritual. It would have been much better off as a simple Coke ad!


  7. Theena: Best see it your self πŸ˜‰ A picture is worth a thousand VERds

    DavyC: Yes sensibilities behind that sign seems quite disconnected. Perhaps they want to attract males with the hope of bagging a woman… πŸ˜‰


  8. What about the “Jesus Christ is coming very soon” sign down there on Galle Road? This was real class when it had a Coke sign beneath it which read “Have a Coke while you wait”
