Swiss Cuisine @ Edelweiss Cafe

For those who likes Swiss or Western Cuisine..You would probably heard of Edelweiss Cafe which is located at Armenian Street in Penang..

As for those who are familiar with the name Edelweiss..You would probably knew that Edelweiss is the name of a flower..hence the flower logo which is above the "i" in the Edelweiss Signboard..

It was just my Mum, Me and Jye for dinner that day..and since I have never been to Edelweiss..I decided to give it a try..

Edelweiss Signboard

Notice the flower which I mentioned above the "i" ?? Yes..that's the Edelweiss flower..

Main Entrance

Here's the main entrance..It does have vintage and country style..

Roman Clock

That's a huge clock..!! but it looks nice..reminds me of the Grandfather Clock..


There are two bars in the restaurant..this one the main bar..look at the design on the wall..brings back the feeling of the "Baba and Nyonya" era..

Dressing Table

Look..I found this mini dressing table which is now used to keep table mats and condiments..At first I did not notice the dressing table..then Mum told me..its an old wooden dressing table..then only I cute it is..

Ice Water

We decided to have Ice Water instead of ordering any beverages..


Salad ( Closed Up )

My main Course which is the Alpen Macroni and Cheese comes with plate of Salad..

The Salad consists of Cherry Tomatoes, Fresh Lettuce and Cucumbers topped of with Thousand Island Sauce.. 

For Sale

There are clothes ( printed with Edelweiss Logo ), Postcards, Bookmarks and Books for sale In support of the upkeep of the building/cafe..

Alpen Macaroni and Cheese ( Creamy )

Alpen Macaroni and Cheese ( Closed Up )

Here's my main course..the Alpen Macaroni and Cheese..There is a choice of Creamy of Dry for the Macaroni and Cheese..and I picked the Creamy Sauce..

The Macaroni is baked with Potatoes and Onions..and topped off with Cheese..

Personally..I did not really like my main it was suppose to be Creamy instead of Dry..and the Macaroni was not well-cooked as it was not tender to chew..
However, I liked the potatoes..which is soft on the other hand..

A bowl of Alpen Macaroni and Cheese will cost RM25.00.. 

Kurt's Specialty

Kurt's Specialty ( Curry )

Mum and Jye ordered the same dish...Kurt's Specialty..This is probably a dish created by the Owner, Kurt and his Wife..It has a mixture of Swiss and Indian taste..

The Curry is probably the idea of Kurt's wife who is an Indian..She is friendly and nice..
Many of the dishes has adopted the Indian Style of Cooking..

Jye said..he did not really like the Chicken from the Curry..but I do like the taste of the Curry..It's mild..and not spicy..

Kurt's Specialty will cost RM23.00 per portion.. 



I have to I have forgotten the name of the Dessert we ordered..

The dessert we ordered comes with Slices of Peach, One Banana sliced into half, One scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream, Fresh Creams, and Sprinkles of Almonds and Chocolate Rice..

I really love the dessert..Mum and Jye liked it tasted sweet and sour at the same time..the peaches and banana goes along with the Ice Cream..*Yummy*

One serving will only cost RM19.00 

Old Ice - Kachang Machine

Spotted this old Ice Kachang Maching on the way to the toilet..

Unique Design


 Can You Spot the Difference?

A unique decoration which is located at the back of the Restaurant..Read the Notice ( second picture above ) which instructs you to pull the string gently until the end to verify the above..

Once the string is pulled..there is a siren and a Skull will appear from the toilet bowl..!!
Very unique..but weird at the same time..
