Yesterday I went to Burps and Giggles as I had some lone time for lunch so I decided to use this opportunity to survey a possible venue for my hen’s tea party. As I walked in, I fell in love with the place instantly. Burps and Giggles is definitely one of its kind in Ipoh – quirky, retro, eclectic. Ambiance – Check.
On the section that you would enter is the bar with the comfy couches and colorful pillows with a Marilyn-Monroe like painting on the wall. And I was under a false impression that this section is under open air as there are trees (real trees) around with a lot of natural light.
But it’s not – if you look up the ceiling, the ceiling is made of a transparent shield with a few Mary Poppins’ umbrellas hanging around. I like the concept – a road-side-cafe without the fear of being disturbed by the rain or sun.
I ordered the “Poulet” (RM16) – the chicken burger and it’s definitely something that I would keep coming back for! The chicken was fried till golden and crisp with all the juices locked inside. I like the addition of the pineapple – an unusual item in burgers but creative. So, Good Food – Check.
There’s also other cold items in the fridge including sandwiches, drapps, salads and desserts.
After gobbling down the delicious burger, I had more energy to explore around the restaurant!
The interior decor through out the restaurant is fun, chic, and every corner has a little something different and surprises you as you explore around – brick walls, luggage-themed walls and antiques. I fond two sun bathing ladies playing in the sand in one corner.
After surveying, I really liked Burps and Giggles and asked for a reservation. Then, I was told that they don’t take reservations! Even when I was ready to give them a deposit!! So kinda felt like !*#@&*+!+#_($)%[email protected]#)&^%&*! inside…… You mean after all that hard work I had done, taking all the photos, showing my bridesmaids/friends the place, eating the good food, I can’t reserve the place!!?? Now, that would be kinda risky – the risk of not getting the big table on a busy saturday! Anyhow…. let’s see how things turn out … Still contemplating …. Should I take a risk?
