Holy Guacamole

Mexican Restaurant

Put a Mexican spin on your night out at Holy Guacamole, located on Penang's nightlife hub, Love Lane. Fill up on Tex-Mex staples like nachos, burritos, tacos, and fajitas, paired with a perfectly mixed pitcher of margaritas or sangria. Not in the mood for Tex-Mex? Try Holy Guacamole's international menu items including satay tacos, Greek salad, pizza, or a beef-burger instead.

Visit at happy hour to make the most of Holy Guacamole's punchy cocktails then dance the night away to Spanish-themed music by a live DJ or band. If you're lucky, staff will let you don a traditional sombrero to get the Mexican vibe really flowing.
