Despite the name, Viva Chicken is vegetarian friendly! The restaurant offers a wide variety of vegetarian options (that’s even marked with a carrot) and for those non-vegetarian eaters, you have an option to add steak or chicken to your meal for an additional charge. If you love rice bowls, it is highly recommended that you try the Tacu Bowl! This dish is packed with your choice of cilantro infused or jasmine rice, beans, salsa, veggies and avocado.
Viva Chicken also offers 3 house made sauces: Aji Amarillo (mild) Huacatay (medium), Rocoto (hot). Each has their own unique taste and are delicious when dipped with their sweet potato fries.
As for pricing, Viva Chicken is pretty easy on the wallet. Almost all of their items on the menu is less than $10 and they do offer decent sized portions. The most expensive item on the menu is a whole chicken with 3 sides for $23.95 which is marketed as a family sized dish.
If you’re looking for some delicious healthy meals then Viva Chicken is the place. Everything tastes fresh and looks delicious.
I can only speak for the Elizabeth Avenue location, but the atmosphere is always friendly and inviting. The location offers outdoor seating which is perfect for spring and summer outings.
Overall Viva Chicken is a great location if you’re in the mood for Peruvian food, a good healthy option or just delicious food in general. I highly recommend checking it out and be sure to try their sweet potato fries!
