On top of this hill, is a charming restaurant in a bungalow named David Brown’s Restaurant & Tea Terrace. It is a restaurant with indoor and alfresco dining area whereby you can enjoy an afternoon tea along a pond with cool fresh air.

Roast Rack of Lamb RM68, honestly this is the best dish for me. The rack is perfectly cook to soft and succulent, not chewy and full of flavor.
Lorong Seratus Tahun is one of the places where you can find most of the famous Penang food.

Lorong Seratus Tahun curry mee is slightly mild and the taste is very depend on their homemade chilli paste. The best part is you can control the taste by yourself. I think I add in too many chilli end up quite spicy.
Hokkien Mee is one of the best hawker delicacies in Penang. Go early for the hokkien mee or otherwise you will need to wait very long for your bowl of mee. Ask for the pork lard to go with the hokkien mee. You definitely won’t be disappointed by the crispiness of it. The hokkien mee usually sold out before 11am.

The 40 minutes awaited hokkien mee doesn't fail my expectation. A great breakfast complemented with wide selection of Nyonya Kuih Muih at One Corner Cafe
This restaurant actually is a fishing store with a small dining area beside it which caters for those customers came for fishing. You can get fresh seafood around Gertak Sanggul area as it's just next to the sea.

Not only the seafood is awesome here but view also breathtaking, you can spend sometime to walk around the beach before dinner.
The restaurant setting is very simple and fully air-conditioned. Its main focus is on its fish steamboat and homemade Yong Tau Fu where the fish paste is made from mackerel fish.

Just need to mention Cheang Kee Restaurant. in Nibong Tebal, you will get the direction. Nibong Tebal is a very small town. This restaurant seen to be a very famous shop. Lot of people waiting for table when we reach there. The wait is worth it, I’m telling you =)

You can find different types of hawker food there like Char Koay Teow, Loh Bak, Yu Sang Kai Chok (Porridge), Chicken rice and others. Kheng Pin café is an old style café where you will still find those old fashioned marble tables and wooden chairs.

Found that the soup is not 'as clear as' the one at Kedai Kopi Ban Leong Ean. Nevertheless, it is still far better than the ones served in certain places.
Bali Hai just down the road from our hotel (Gurney Hotel). Looked popular as there was alot of people. Whats nice is that they have tanks and tanks of live seafood!

Pancake: I thought zucchini is raw veggies that goes well with sandwich. I rarely see dishes prepared with cooked zucchini, not to mention pancakes. (ok, the savoury pancake is already a great shock ). One side of the pancake was bake to crust while the other side remain soft and cloudy. The zucchini was not overcook. The veggies remain it's moist with tender juicy filling. Onion sauce: Consuming the plain zucchini pancake is already a bless, but when both the pancake and onion sauce WOW! Exquisite! The oily saute do not moist the crunchy grill like layer of the pancake, but give an extra smoothing texture to the pancake. Need not to explain, the slightly salty sauce is the origin of the savoury taste for the pancake. Salmon: One of the best, or probably the best salmon I ever taste in my life! The fillet was not marinated, but it is reasonably fresh (of course you can't compare the freshness with a freshly slaughted Salmon sashimi~). It was also not over cook or still raw (I had some bad experience of raw and non fresh grill Salmon before -___-), very juicy, slightly oily with a crusty outer layer+skin, *muack* just the way I like my Salmon to be ^ ^ Mash Potato: No surprise in the mash potatoes. I think more milk can be add to enhance it texture and flavour.No comment on the mashed pea and sour cream topping, just decent I would say. Overall: 9.5/10 (A very new concept of specialty restaurant that focus on pancake. Rare, fun, excited, good experience) Taste bud indulgence: 10/10 (PHOP really amazed me, I like the surprises and unexpected taste bud experience, would like to come back to try more ^ ^) Purse saver: 8/10 (I know specialty restaurant will rank at higher price, but out of Asia, pancakes are just some normal daily meal, part of their life! Don't you think we deserve to charge lesser? Although geography constrain the receipt to be norm in Malaysia, but pancakes flour is very cheap in Malaysia! *>.<* ) Atmosphere: 9/10 (Warm with a classy touch, good place to hang out. The dim ligh in the shop is more romantic than the tables located outside)
