The flavors are simply out of this world. You must try this fried fish.
Churros Donut Stack at Botanica + Co:
Botanica+Co is not an old restaurant. It is one of the very modern and stylish restaurants in KL. I love one of their desserts and it’s truly unique not only in its presentation but it also tastes amazing. Churros Donut Stack is a donut-shaped churros stack topped with vanilla ice cream, drizzled with caramel & chocolate. The salty caramel and sweet churros make a heavenly combination of flavors in your mouth.
