Dine NRH Featuring Spicy Zest

Sri Lankan food in North Richland Hills

Experience authentic Sri Lankan cuisine at its finest when you visit family-owned Spicy Zest Café & Boba, located at 8427 Boulevard 26 at the corner of Harwood in North Richland Hills. Similar to South Indian food, owner Nimidu Senaratne takes pride in his mouth-watering “made fresh” menu with 100% natural herbs and spices and no artificial colors or flavors. Nearly 10 years ago, Senaratne started Spicy Zest as a catering business, but now has two established restaurants in North Texas and is advertised as the only Sri Lankan Restaurant in the entire state!

Featuring fan favorites like “Kottu NRH”—an uber thin pan-toasted Sri Lankan style tortilla with carrots, cabbage, onion, unique spices and your choice of protein and “Zesty Tacos” with red onions, lettuce, cabbage, cheese, guacamole and a spicy sauce. If you prefer to stop in for a snack, you’ll find spring rolls, chicken puff pastries and veggie or lamb roti (flatbread) wraps. The Boba bar offers WiFi connection and a variety of milk teas, smoothies, and fruit teas, so you can plan to stay for a while. Additionally, a unique feature of Spicy Zest is the Sri Lankan grocery section, with specialty herbs, sauces and packaged selections. The business also offers takeout, curbside, delivery, catering and kid-friendly selections.

A 10% discount is offered to Veterans and senior citizens, as well as doctors, nurses and active police officers, since the pandemic started.  Learn more about Spicy Zest Café & Boba by visiting them at Dine NRH spotlights family-owned, unique restaurants that the community may not be aware of.
