The Botanist, Cyberjaya

June 15, 2019

Green thumbs, gravy-smeared fingers: This family-run cafe is well worth the trip to Cyberjaya, serving excellent bao burgers and selling eco-friendly products in a lush tropical setting.

Three types of baos are available (RM12 each), built with handmade black sesame buns - the Mumu Rendang is lip-smackingly layered with 40-hour slow-cooked beef short ribs, boiled eggs and cucumber in an umami-rich rendang sauce. Other options include the Ko-Ko Chicken (crispy chicken with edamame mayo, pickles and slaw) and the Crumbly Cheese (mild cheddar with truffled mixed mushrooms and smoky garlic aioli).

House-brewed kombucha (RM8; pleasingly mellow) and cold-brewed green tea (RM5; very refreshing) ensure customers remain thoroughly hydrated. You can also purchase everything from chemical-free soap to non-plastic toothbrushes and reusable travel mugs here. Service is warm and welcoming.
