"Beware of food that is cold..." Colombo Warnings Or Dangers Tip by lauriejeanne

Colombo Warnings and Dangers: 21 reviews and 13 photos

Beware of food that is cold and sweet. Why you ask? Because the chilis in these dishes can be just as deadly hot as in the main courses!! Don't let the fact that a dish is cold or sweet fool you into thinking that it's not spicy. It may be, but then again... it may not!! If you do find your eyes watering, your nose running and pain searing through your mouth, do NOT drink water! Plain white rice and/or pineapple will neutralize the chilis, water will only sear the spice further in!
