“Soy ice cream paradise” 5 of 5 bubbles
Review of Soya Centre

Soya Centre
Ranked #1 of 1 Bakeries in Kandy
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Sri Lankan
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Good for: Families with children, Kids, Dining on a budget
Dining options: Brunch, Outdoor Seating, Seating, Takeout
Description: Sells a collection of novel short-eats made with soy, such as wades, and roti rolls and sandwiches filled with soy sausage. The biggest attraction are the vegan the generous soy soft-serve ice cream cones.The open-air counter high above the street is extremely popular with locals, though service is prompt. Also sells typical vegetable buns and rolls, and bulk soy products such tofu and tempeh can be purchased there. And exciting find for the dairy-free traveller. Trucks in Kandy also sell the so called "soy ice cream", in smaller portions, though the ice cream at the Soya Centre is the tastiest and has the best quality.

“Soy ice cream paradise”

Delicious soft serve ice cream , no lactose, and made naturally! The owner is super nice and informative.. The snacks are also great, vegetarian of course. A must for the hot days of Kandy!

“Best place in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

Just amazing icecream, and made of plants!
We've been scooping here 3 times a day on average.
One downside: highly addictive!
