Botanica Deli @ Bangsar South

Lots of space, light & leaves make Botanica Deli a pretty appealing new lunchtime retreat for Bangsar South's office workers. 

The deli specialises in salads, sandwiches, soups, pastries & coffee: Possible orders include the turkey avocado salad (RM19.50; turkey roast, avocado, cranberries, apples & grapes) & prawn-&-crab sandwich (RM19.50; with paprika, scallions, celery, honey & dill mayo). Add RM5 for a small soup, such as minestrone or lotus root; if you're super-hungry, you may be tempted by a pecan pie or house-made muesli. It's safe, hassle-free fare, served by a cheery, welcoming team, but what we're really looking forward to is Botanica Deli's upcoming sister restaurant next door, Botanica & Co, touted as a botanics-inspired, greenhouse-themed setting, tackling the likes of pizzas & pastas. Expect to hear more about the Botanica brand.

  2. I have been to Bangsar South for some seminars and since food is provided, did not get a chance to try out any of the nice makan places. The food at this Botanica Deli looks so chic :) I love salads and sandwiches. The interior is nice, surrounded by glass.

    2. I've just watched that interview, Sean. And I concur, it's the way you write that attracted me to your blog in the first place, not so much the photos...hehe! :D And I agree, you need a lot of passion to continue blogging...and I hope you'll meet your aspiration of blogging for the next 20 years (though I'd probably have stopped blogging long before that) but I'll still be visiting/supporting your blog nonetheless :)

    3. Contact.ewew: yeah, different people read this for different reasons (some don't like the writing or the pics, they just want to know about the restaurants), but i really don't mind, heh :) thanks for your very kind wishes for my longevity ... gasp, i'll be 60 in another 20 years. actually i can't remember what i said in the interview - the questions were spontaneous, and so were the answers; i just muttered whatever came to mind :)

  5. I'd go for the sandwich. That tree in the middle brings to mind an old Nat King Cole song. :D
