Home Food Reviews Burps & Giggles, Ipoh

A spot for burger in Ipoh

Ipoh is becoming one of my favourite spots to visit over the long weekend. It is (still) less congested compared to Melaka and Penang, but still bustling with old school charms and cafés. While Penang remains my favourite spot for good hawker food, I prefer the ambiance in Ipoh – less hectic. rif and I like Burps & Giggles along Ipoh Kong Heng, for the food and décor.


You can choose to sit at any of the three lots


Whimsical elements


Artsy fartsy

The café occupies the stretch of old shoplots at Kong Heng and serves Western, Asian and sweet treats. We tried two burgers, Jammy and Greeko, both priced at RM18 each. I wouldn’t say the burgers were the best I’ve eaten but these were decent enough to satisfy the tummy.


Jammy (RM18)


Angus beef patty, jalapeno, tomato jam, cheese, tomato, onions


Greeko (RM18)


Lamb patty, cheese, red pepper, onion, olives, mint yogurt


Cheese fries

The fries come with a choice of cheese or truffle oil. We opted for cheese, which was too scarce a ratio compared to the fries. Coffee isn’t much to shout about – my iced latte was alright, but rif’s order (Magnolia Ugly) was more memorable.


Could use more cheese…

We adjourned to the next room for dessert and a change of ambiance. Crepes have been a favourite of mine since I had them in Paris and London. I enjoyed the sweet crepe of pear, mars chunks, mascarpone dollops and ginger butterscotch. This was a nice play of tangy, sweet and chocolate flavours.


Sweet crepe — pear, mars chunks, mascarpone dollops, ginger butterscotch


Savoury crepe — Creamy thyme infused mushroom, potato cubes, basil & cheddar


Richly flavoured


Tangy, sweet and chocolatey

The savoury version was also pretty decent. This came filled with creamy thyme-infused mushroom, potato cubes, basil and cheddar for a rich, gooey centre. I was told the owners maintained the nature of the shoplots, while adding whimsical touches to the décor. There are plenty of vintage knick knacks on display – my mother in-law loved this place when we brought her here.
