David Brown’s Restaurant @ Strawberry Hill/Penang Hill – Part 1

Over the weekend, I finally had the chance to visit David Brown’s Restaurant up on Penang Hill. A blog reader had previously told me about this place and I have been wanting to go ever since. A group of us took the tram up on a Sunday. Its been soooo long since I went up Penang Hill! Tram tickets are now RM4 (return trip) for adults and RM2 for children.

Penang Hill tram schedule

The tram ride up to David Brown’s (located just near the upper station) took about 30minutes.

The view up at Penang Hill is definitely breathtaking! And upon arrival at David Brown’s, I just went snap happy, snapping photos of everything. I took so many photos that I’ll have to split up this review into two parts. This first one will feature the scenery..while the next one will of course feature the food!

So…we’ll let the photos speak for themselves, shall we?  🙂

  2. kenny – makan part2 coming!! tonite..when i get home. 🙂 the lotus flowers very nice right? i took so many photos of everything! lol

    little inbox – i think many penangites take penang hill for granted. i think my previous visit was also about 5 years ago. it can be quite packed during the weekends though.

    what2see – really feels like you are not in penang up there! plus the weather is quite cool, especially when its windy! 🙂

  7. sock peng – yes you can stay and chit chat inside the bungalow. there are tables inside too. and you can just order drinks (they have a variety of teas and juices) or some desserts. its a nice place to chill out and enjoy the view and the cool weather.
