Botanika – Vegetarian paradise

Botanika means Botany in Russian. Also, it’s the name of this nice restaurant I’m going to tell you about. When you come here, you instantly start smiling. It’s a true thing that vegetarians are usually relaxed and not aggressive and so will you when you come to their favorite spot. You really feel you are under no pressure here.

When I came to Botanika for the first time many years ago, I couldn’t understand what was going on here and why it was so calm to just sit at the table in the cozy room. Now I know that it is the people who make this special atmosphere.

So I come to Botanika for the atmosphere. And tasty food. And fresh juice cocktails. And for quiet talking with people I like. Can I forget it’s not Arambol beach behind the window? Maybe not. But I can relax and breathe every sad thought away.

One more tip: hot apple pie with maple syrup. Yum!

Head to Tauride Garden or Radishcheva Street to walk a bit after the meal (or check Auroville article to compare vegetarian options).
