Victoria Green Corner @ Jalan Padang Victoria, Pulau Tikus, Penang.
Victoria Green Corner is a house turned artsy cafe, the cafe is dedicated to serving Nyonya-influenced menu. There's no clear signage out the front but the interiors are sparkling and stunning. It displays a great amount of antiques, ranging from the ancient Chinese toga to the recent Nyonya's collection of crockery set. The decors are eye-pleasing, with some of them designed by the daughter of the restaurateur. The menu is small and some of the offering is common but the real pull factor is the homey ambiance. If you are into Nyonya-inspired dishes, this place is worth a look. Victoria Green Corner can be found behind Union Primary School, opposite Westlands Secondary School.
Assam Laksa (Rm 6)
Steamed Man Tau with Curry Chicken (Rm 8)
Chicken Satay (Rm 7/ 5 sticks)
We had quite a few dishes and their Assam Laksa outshined the rest. The medley of sweet, spicy, sour and savory notes were well-balanced... maybe slightly veering towards the sour side but it was refreshing. It may smell fishy at first but that was exactly the essence of the sea. The texture of the noodles was well-controlled either. It ticked all the boxes (by our standard). Our only complain was the serving portion... but as far as quality was concerned, Victoria Green Corner definitely nailed it.
Steamed Man Tau with Curry Chicken was alright, there was nothing to shout over the buns. The Curry Chicken was standard-average, though I'd prefer the Curry to be thicker and richer but my partner in crime thought that was fine. It was not spicy at all so that could be a safe bet for young diners. Chicken Satay was a disappointment, the meat was a tad too dry to our liking. The seasoning was good but the dish was spoiled by the texture of the meat. Not all items were impressive... probably the only dish that we could agree and approve was Assam Laksa.
