Why Ivy's Nyonya Cuisine is special ?
Some dishes are highly recommended in this restaurant:
The kerabu pomelo has pomelo, chili padi, coriander, Chinese chives and plenty of ginger flower. The taste was appetizing with offerings of sour and sweet notes and heat from the cut chilies.
Kari Kapitan was cooked with onions in a rich and thick coconut based curry. The chicken pieces liberally coated in the gravy were perfect eaten together with rice.
Ivy’s offered the fish in the unique assam pedas sauce. The whole red snapper was served with ginger flower, mint leaves and pieces of pineapples which added a tangy note to the hot and sourish sauce.
The soup was the delightful salty duck soup. With generous amount of black mushroom, tomatoes and duck meat, the soup is rich and brightly-flavored with hint of nutmeg after several hours of boiling.
The chicken rolls (Loh Bak) with moist chicken meat had a nice flavor of herb and spices. The rolls were served with cucumber, tomatoes and dipping chili sauce which added an additional layer of flavor to the chicken.

Tips for you
Informal restaurant fronted by the owner with his wife doing the cooking. The appearance is a bit shabby but the food was delicious. The owner is very friendly & explained the food & the set menus for us. We wanted pescatarian so we changed out a meat dish for a fish one on a set menu for two without any problem. The food is Nonya & some of the best I have had in my limited experience in Penang. The otak-otak & the assam prawns were stand-out for me, but all the food was excellent. There are beers available as well as some home made soft drinks that again were good. Prices are very reasonable, I will certainly be returning.
The 'Today's Special' set is awesome! The 2 pax set is extremely reasonable and can feed up to 3. The portions are generous and the food is authentic, with chicken falling off the bone. Yum yum yum!
