Itching for a day trip out of KL? Consider Ipoh, where Burps & Giggles has fast become one of this northern city's most buzz-worthy cafes.
Opened in early September by Julie Song of Indulgence, B&G occupies a colonial-era building that once housed a dressmaker's store among other businesses.
Thanks to its mix of old-world charm and contemporary coolness, folks will enjoy exploring B&G, preserved for posterity with marvelous murals and fun furnishing.
But B&G isn't relying solely on its setting to lure customers; its menu is laudably inventive, loaded with light bites like mu shu lamb folded in mantao pancake (RM8).
Pumpkin-and-tomato wrap (RM15), swelling with nature's soft, sweet harvest.
Duck pate with biscuits (RM8). For the most part, no unreasonably steep prices here.
B&G's food can't be easily pigeonholed: it's as eclectically cluttered as the outlet, but there's a Mediterranean influence in recipes like these spiced beans and lamb sausages with pesto-laced egg custard and ciabatta toast.
Burgers are a highlight here; the recommendation is the Bam-Bam (RM28), a stomach-stuffing whopper of a Wagyu beef patty, egg, cheese, tomato, beetroot, carrots, horseradish and onions.
