Edelweiss Cafe is the first and only Swiss Restaurant in Penang. We have heard of it for some time but only saw it while on our way to lunch with our friends at Colonial Restaurant. We found this place very charming when we walk passed it.

We finally visited the place last week. It is housed in a pre-war shoplot. The entrance is decorated with assorted green plants and ferns.


The interior of the restaurant is beautifully decorated with antiques.

Now for the food that we came for……


Being pork lovers and don’t mind consuming a bit of fatty meat once in a while, we tried out the smoked pork belly which is rarely found nowadays. The meat was succulent and the smoked aroma was very strongly embedded into it. It was served up with salad and mashed potato mixed with cheese.


The plate of barbeque spare ribs marinated with plenty of seasonings were very tasty and I could not resist eating them using my fingers!

Dessert not to be left out. The apple flan was served warm with a scoop of Swiss Mövenpick ice cream whereas the pumpkin cake with fresh cream.

We also had the caffeine-free Madras coffee which is very soothing and smooth. The coffee cream looks lovely with a heart shaped sign made up of cocoa powder. I think it would be very romantic having this cup of coffee on Valentine’s day!!!


If you are looking for Swiss cuisine, desserts or even for a drink in a pleasant and cozy environment, just drop by this lovely restaurant located in Armenian Street.
