Oh My Gourmet!

“Tis the season for entertaining and the food you serve speaks volumes of your creativity and taste. But then it can also be a cumbersome task to put together a spread that has people go OMG! And that is where Lakmali and her platter making skills comes in.


Oh My Gourmet is a platter and grazing table expert that basically takes all these wonderful elements that you would normally find at a five-star buffet and brings it to your house or office party all neatly placed for a feast for your eyes (and taste buds!). Lakmali, a self-proclaimed food lover first started off by entertaining at home and when the interest and love for her offering grew, it automatically became a business.


Today, she offers a variety of platters and grazing tables according to your requirement and number of guests. The platters come in two varieties of hot and cold packed with home-baked goodies or some of the best cheeses and imported cold cuts. Carefully curated, the platters like we said earlier are first a feast for the eyes. When placing orders Lakmali requires 2-4 days notice and a few more this busy season and all platters are to be picked up from Ramakrishna Road in Colombo 6. Since a lot of care and attention is places on the platters, Lakmali does charge a refundable deposit of 3,000 per platter for the crockery used and once returned to her safely, the deposit is refunded.


So let’s get down to the platters themselves, starting off with the hot platter for 4 that we ordered. Our platter consisted of Fish Patties, Mini Sausage Rolls, Spicy Chicken Wings, Teriyaki Meatballs and Mini Mushroom and Cream Cheese Puffs. There are about 8 of each all served with tangy Tomato Sauce and lots of Rosemary. Of the savouries are favourite was definitely the Mushroom and Cream Cheese Puffs which were simply melt in your mouth. We loved the flavour of the Cream Cheese and be sure to have each one with a sprig of the Rosemary for that added flavour.


We saved the best for last to tell you just how much we enjoyed the Cold Platter. Packed with Carrots, Green Bell Peppers, Grapes, Passion Fruit, Salami, Prosciutto, parmesan Breadsticks, Crackers and of course a Feta Dip, Brie with Australian Honey and Blue Cheese this platter although for 4 people can easily be consumed by one person like me who simply loves cheese. The cheeses were all super fresh and portions quite generous too which we loved. The only downside was that the platter could have had a bit more on the Cold Cuts side. We loved mixing and matching the different flavours and also the attention to details with placement and combinations.


This season Lakmali’s also putting together specific Christmas platters that you may want to check out as well. We’re certainly excited about it.
