The Rio ice cream parlour is legendary in Jaffna. I was in Jaffna covering the Jaffna Music Festival and had been told that Rio's is a must experience in Jaffna.
We were leaving Jaffna on Sunday morning by the 10 am bus to Vavuniya. From Vavuniya we would catch the train back to Colombo. We still hadn't gotten the chance to try Rio's ice cream. So come Sunday morning, we packed our bags checked out and headed to Rio's for our breakfast of ice cream sundaes.
Now I am a huge ice cream junkie. Ice cream makes me happy. I never imagined that the cutest ice cream parlour in Sri Lanka would be found in Jaffna. Rio's is situated near Nallur temple and they make such amazingly creative sundaes. Carnival sundaes are so bland after this.
At Rio's ice cream sundaes are decorated with smarties, jelly, fresh mango, and little chocolate rocks among other things. The ice cream is made by Rio themselves and they sell their own tubs too. The most expensive sundae costs 140/= .
If you're ever headed to Jaffna Rio's is a must stop.
