Founded by Chef Bruno Macchiavello and Randy Garcia in 2013, the star of VIVA’s menu is Pollo a la Brasa – a staple of Peruvian street food, made from Chef Macchiavello’s family recipe. To complement its charcoal-fire-roasted chicken, VIVA also prepares three Peruvian sauces in-house daily at each restaurant – Aji Amarillo (Mild, Yellow), Huacatay (Medium, Green) and Rocoto (Hot, Red).

Flavorful juices like Maracuya (Passion Fruit Juice), Herbal Limeade, and Peruvian favorite Chicha Morada (made from Peruvian Purple Corn, Cinnamon, Clove, Pineapple, Apple and Limes) are also made in-house daily. In addition, the VIVA Chicken menu includes signature sides including Solterito (Peruvian corn salad) Yuca, Arroz Chaufa (Peruvian fried rice,  and more.

“We believe Viva will bring a new flavor to the area and are excited to open our doors to Summerville and share our Pollo a la Brasa,” Chef Macchiavello said. “If you want to check us out, come hungry and get there early because once our chickens are gone, they’re gone until the next day.”

Through its VIVA Cares program, VIVA Chicken integrates into the local communities it serves, supporting local non-profit organizations and its broader national program with No Kid Hungry. VIVA Chicken is partnering with Lowcountry Food Bank, an umbrella partner of No Kid Hungry, for its Nexton opening events, with proceeds going back to the organization.

VIVA Chicken’s Summerville location in the Nexton Center will be open every day from 11 am until 9 pm.
