If deciding what to have for lunch was an Olympic sport, then most of us would come last. Jokes aside, indecisiveness is something we all grapple with when it comes to lunch. A, there’s too many options, and B, everyone has different preferences. Some days we are looking for adventure, other days familiarity is best. Well, whichever moods you’re in, Putrajaya has something for everyone, plus a good view of the lake if you pick the right location! Without further a do, here go the Putrajaya Lunch Spots.
1. The Botanist Green Cafe
A lovely, family-run cafe, The Botanist Green Cafe is literally a garden in Cyberjaya. Besides serving delicious bao burgers, they also sell eco-friendly products too as part of their mission to become more sustainable. Best sellers include the handmade black sesame buns – the Mumu Rendang is a crowd favourite- and the Ko-Ko Chicken, which comes with a side of edamame, pickles and slaw. If you’d like to indulge further, the Crumbly Cheese burger is a must-have, alongside the generous serving of French fries.

A well-balanced merge between Western and Japanese, this fusion cafe is the solution for our indecisiveness.
