Greetings from across the sea! ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
Yes, I'm back at home now for my annual summer break YAY So hopefully I'll blog more often, now that I'm free.
Still remember my trip to Ipoh that I blogged not long ago? Well, if you remember, I did mention that I will blog Burps and Giggles in another separate post cause I had too many photos to share with you guys. Feast your eyes!
I came to know about this cafe from Kinkybluefairy and since then I tell myself I must visit this cafe. Cause it's seems like my kind of cafe. Even the quirky name of this cafe attracted me when I first heard it. While listing down places to visit in Ipoh, Burps & Giggles is definitely one of them. It actually took us quite some time to spot this place since we've never been there, even drive around the same area for 3 times before we found it. While walking to the cafe, we saw this interesting wall painting of Monroe.
|I like the idea where a fusion of a local and western subjects are included in the painting.|
|A sneak peek of the Lazy Lane through the side gate, perfect for lazy people like me :P It's actually Burps and Giggles backlane for those who prefer to dine al-fresco.|
|Now this is something new cause I never knew Monroe's originates from City of Ipoh.|
|Welcome to Burps & Giggles where it's okay for the girls to burp and the guys to giggles (≧∇≦)|
|The wooden exterior reminds me of the bar in cowboy movies.|
|Colourful vintage umbrellas on the ceiling!|
|Another part of their menu that is scribbled on chalkboards, I had to tilt my head to be able to read it.|
|In Burps & Giggles, they have a lot of these weird looking lamps too made with different types of material. As for this, it is made from lace and clothes.|
|The area with larger tables where we were seated cause there was 7 of us.|
|What sexy legs you have there, oh wait it's actually a lampstand.|
|Another rather amusing painting at the backlane hehe with a bag filled with real bra! :3|
|An indoor painting of another two plump ladies in bikini and hello serious looking ang moh c:|
|A cute sign that you'll see while on your way to the washroom *farts*|
|Another artistic painting of a lady.|
|The only cafe where I've seen a tree inside of it. For pastries and dessert, to the right please.|
|Group photo #1. |
Really convenient to have big mirror inside the cafe as well, so we might as well make good use of it.
Since we just had lunch, so we ordered a few different mains to share.
|Reverend Mama @ RM15.00 // Bagel with smoked salmon and soft boiled egg. |
You know I can't resist smoked salmon, so I just had to order this one and I was quite delighted that they serve bagels. Happy to see a soft boiled egg on top too!
|Hazelnut Choc Crepe@ RM14.00|
This was quite a let down, a tad too sweet and it's not really worth the price.
They have two types of crepe btw, savoury and sweet to accommodate different taste buds.
|Spud with Smoke Salmon @ RM15.00 |
Just so you know, spud is another name for potato. So this is just baked potato served with smoked salmon. I guess if you're a potato and salmon lover, you'll like this (:
|See, I told you everyone love the brownies.|
|Fries @ RM4.00 // I love how it's thick cut HEH|
|Another Monroe's painting spotted indoor. They sure love Monroe!|
|Instead of papers or sticky notes, they use buku 555 for the patrons to leave messages. How unique!|
|The beautiful ladies :3|
|Weird lamp no #2, made from strings.|
|I just love the vintage vibe of the cafe.|
|Weird lamp no #3, made from colourful zippers!|
|Another one for the albuum, smile ladies (:|
I then saw there's actually a flight of stairs that leads to a small corner on the first floor. So I head up and snap around as well.
|Love this shot of me taken by Kew // You are confined to the walls build by yourself.|
|They really make use of all the place they have, even if it's just a small area. Perhaps they do need all these space to accommodate more patrons during peak hours.|
|Bicycle hanging in mid-air at the first floor.|
|Alright, one last group shot! :D|

I've never expect to find such a cool concept cafe in Ipoh like seriously, since Ipoh is more renowned for its street food. It is officially in my favourite concept cafes list now where I can spend the whole day just sipping tea and reading a book. Burps & Giggles is a really nice spot to hang out with friends or to spend some personal time at any time of the day since it serves food that is suitable for any meals of the day. I'd love to try their burgers and tapas, probably on my next trip? (; I think their price is still affordable and reasonable, cause I wouldn't mind paying a little extra for the comfy and cosy ambiance as well. So if you're an Ipoh-ian or plan to visit Ipoh, don't forget to drop by Burps & Giggles to experience this cafe yourself.
