Fancy a meal with a dash of personality? Make your way to Viva Victoria (at Victoria Street, central Georgetown)- an eclectic, quirky space that offers good drinks and delicious food. It's hard to describe this place- the facade hardly tells about the place but once you are in, you will find yourself in a mysterious place with a shelf of books, eclectic knick-knacks and oddly, a whiff of Indian scents. The menu is equally interesting- cleverly blends in elements from the East and West, with a playful local touch... complemented by an impressive specialty drinks menu. The place has a casual dining atmosphere, which is suitable for casual lunch or to relax and enjoy an evening sip.
Many Thanks to Viva Victoria for hosting us.

Classic Nyonya sauce is used for the Nyonya Sea Bass- with nicely seared Sea Bass served atop of well-spiced, tangy Nyonya sauce. There is also a small serving of White Rice to go with the sauce, to satisfy the Asian in you. Another Asian-Western blend would be Chi Kut Teh... Chicken Roulade served with a thick, herbaceous Bak Kut Teh reduction (Chicken is used as Viva Victoria is a pork-free restaurant)... a somewhat exquisite dish but with an acquired taste.
If Lamb is your thing, the 24 Hour Lamb Shank is quite a charm. the Lamb Shank is meticulously cooked to fork tender, the brown sauce packs a flavorful punch and with the creamy mashed Potatoes; the dish is both a palate-pleaser and a tummy-filler. Meat-free option would include the Cauliflower Steaks, a popular but uncommon vegan dish in Penang. Paprika-seasoned roasted Cauliflower Steaks served with Quinoa and home-made Olive-Tomato condiments. The Cauliflower Steaks have the juicy crunch while the condiments provide a savory but refreshing dimension to the dish. We recommend ending the meal with their classic but delicious Cocktails.
