A Nonya Gem - Victoria Green Corner Cafe

Shern & Khye @ Victoria Green Corner - 27 June 2017

So for our Penang Cafe Hunting for this Raya hols, we found this little gem cafe - Victoria Green Corner. The place is rather ubiquitous as there is no obvious signage at the entrance. But there were beautiful deco quirks at the entrance.
See, no signage. 

This is at the side of the entrance. Love all these greens. 

Inside was quirkily decorated and very nice.
Victoria Green Corner is a house turned cafe and I heard that it is run by the family.  
The whole place and its food is nyonya-inspired. I like the space and also how bright the place is. I don't like dimly lit cafes, especially when I have young kids with me.

Not many photos of little Vern because he was in a bad mood after crying all the way from Tanjung Bungah to there. Usually he's ok now in his car seat but then he was making a fuss and said he wanted "carry and nen-nen" which I didn't give in, so he wailed the car down. I still didn't give in, thus the bad mood. lol.

The paintings and random stuff on the mantelpiece adds to its quirkiness.

After the drinks arrived (Add rm1 to your set meal for the Roselle drink, he was happy again and was all smiles for my camera!
I captured him with the deco behind him. So pretty right?


While waiting for the food, Khye wrote and drew while Shern folded paper planes.

Look at the "story book" Khye wrote/drew of his family. 
So now I know daddy loves them but mummy buys everything. Hmmmm.....hahaha

 The author and illustrator of his book. :)

And now for the highlight of this place. The food.
Very reasonably priced. The curry chicken + mantou was RM10.
The rest of the food we ordered the set I think around RM20 but very big portion, and it came with soup and dessert (mini pau).

The Pork Vinegar was delicious!!!!
My kids loved the Sweet and Sour Pork and also the Honey Glazed Pork! And they loved the fried egg on top of all the rice dishes.

We are a big eater and even then we couldn't finish all these. And when the dessert of mini paus came, we surrendered and tapau that home!

I heard that the laksa there is very good. We didn't order because the kids can't eat that. Will keep it for the next time we go back!

On the way home, all kids konked off in their carseats. And yes, Vern no more made noise this time when put into his seat. :)
Have a happy Tuesday!

I really like the concept of this cafe, it looks like someone's house. Very welcoming! I am surprised that it is so reasonable too.
