The Charm of Ipoh Old Town: Burps & Giggles



It was a visual feast the moment we stepped into the rustic, but quirky Burps & Giggles, occupying two pre-war shoplots in Ipoh old town (Ipohans should have no problem recognising the old U.S. Peter dressmaking signboard).

Burps & Giggles is the third and latest brainchild of chef and restauranteur Julie Song (the first was the famed Indulgence, followed by Allegra) – a tapas (or more accurately known as “pincho“) bar and bistro. Big, heavy main course are not their forte as they focuses primarily on small bites but if you must have something more substantial for the tummy, they serves burgers, pastries and sandwiches too (baked fresh daily from their main kitchen in Indulgence).



Word of mouth about this place has been all over Facebook, so when we dropped by one fine Sunday, as expected, the place was packed to the brim. We eventually chose to sit at the bar top with natural lighting from above. We had Harvey (RM16), a fish burger that was grilled instead of the conventional deep fried. Studded with coriander and mint leaves, coupled with a tarty Thai-infused dressing and abundant of chopped veggies, the patty has a texture resembling firm tofu.



My Jammy (RM18), combination of Angue beef patty, jalapeno, cheese, tomato jam, onion and tomato doesn’t look very appetising but alas, the patty was juicy and moist (luckily), with add-on thick cut fries (I opted for truffle oil but couldn’t really taste the subtle flavour of it, probably my tongue is overwhelmed by the beefy taste of the burger).





Feeling a little greedy, we chose something else from the pastry counter as well. The Passionfruit Sugee Cake has a crumbly texture but I like the tangy topping which complements the cake, however, my sister finds the topping too sour to her liking. She finds her Banana Muffin fares better, though.




If you’re looking for some light bites after lunch hour or to “lepak” with your friends over couple of drinks and cakes, do try out their tapas after 3pm daily – I heard they serves quite a mean spread of it.
