Botanica Real Food will open their second Brisbane store in Teneriffe this May, giving locals a healthier option for meals on the go.

The well-known boutique salad bar is the second project by experienced chefs and married duo Alison and Brett Hutley.

It’s been three years since the couple opened their first store at Red Hill, which proved to be a hit with the locals. Alison says they just couldn’t resist customer demands for a second shop.

“We recognise people are time poor and work hard, so we wanted to help them not only eat well but eat fresh real food,” she says.

“All our salads, breakfasts and treats are a simple yet convenient option for people who are looking to maintain a healthy lifestyle or just to eat top notch produce.”

Alison says Botanica makes life a little leafier and a little easier.

“The food is a tasty takeaway option whether it is at lunchtime, after work, for those dinner party additions or catering for a work function,” she says.

Foodies can expect to devour all their favourite salads at the new store, with 19 different salads on rotation.

Try the shaved raw broccoli salad with dehydrated cranberries, almonds and garlic cashew cream or the raw beetroot salad with orange blossom, orange, feta and mint. Delish!!

There will also be an array of pre-packaged breakfasts and gluten-free treats on offer, including vegan brownies with coconut caramel, passionfruit cupcakes and glazed mini lemon bundt cakes. Drool!

Botanica’s new shop will open in May and will be located at 29 Doggett Street in Teneriffe.
