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

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 and pastas. Expect to hear more about the Botanica brand.
