Fancy having scones and tea in cool climate with a view to behold?
Then you should make the trip up Penang Hill to dine at David Brown's restaurant. With the new funicular completed, it will take only a 5-minute trip to the peak as compared to a 30-minute ride before. The only annoying experience is the permanent long queues at the ticketing booth.
Of course, english afternoon tea at elevated locations comes at a premium. At rm78++ for a couple's tea set, it is not cheap. But that is the price that people is willing to pay to experience the environment and to taste the quality delights.
The scones and apple tarts are good though. My advice is to avoid the peak seasons and always carry an umbrella with you :)
