The old saying "you don't make friends with salad" can officially be put to rest, with Brisbane's best purveyors of the stuff, Botanica, opening their fourth location in Hawthorne on 25 January, meaning they've got every side of Brisbane covered in the side dish department. Not that these salads should be anything but a main—and if you've yet to sample the joys of Botanica's kale and crouton number you'll soon agree that humans and salads can be very best of friends.
Along with the usual line-up of fresh, flavoursome salads—including our personal faves, the cashew and broccoli; potato and pea; and of course, the kale—the new real food takeaway spot will also offer up their famous gluten-free savoury tarts as well as a bigger selection of signature mini bundt cakes, which is good news indeed. Lunch, dinner, dessert, sorted.
