When it comes to JB-tripping, few have been to Senibong Cove, a tranquil residential estate located along a waterfront right opposite Singapore. It’s time to change this though, because Bora Bora Botanist has just opened its doors and it’s a gorgeous floral-themed cafe that serves massive seafood platters at affordable prices!

Their menu consists of Western-Asian fusion dishes, with mains, pasta, salads, pizza, and even all-day brunches available from 9AM – 4PM on weekdays and 9AM – 6PM on weekends, but the highlight is definitely their seafood platters!

Boasting Boston lobsters, prawns, oysters, clams, smoked salmon, and an array of house sauces, the platter for 2 pax costs RM168, which is approximately SGD$28 per diner, and the platter for 4 – 6 pax costs RM286, which works out to be a steal at just SGD$15 – SGD$23 per person!
