Burps & Giggles in old town Ipoh exudes a welcoming warmth and is a triple threat in the hipster cafe scene, with all three rooms boasting kitschy decor. The interior design is the result of random thoughts. Keeping it as real and as original as possible, Burps and Giggles is old school and indie. It encompasses everything that is hipster. The whimsical interior design for burps and giggles was in all honesty constructed on a random basis whereby the owners would conjure up crazy designs for drawings, DIY lampshades, recycling old materials as furnitures and other whacky ideas to create a rustic and yet catchy cafe. This cafe is set to charm all gastronomes with delectable food as well as quirky atmosphere that promises an unforgettable gourmet experience in the old town of ipoh. Burps & Giggles gets it right for preserving a rustic kind of ambience while making history look really cool right now.
一直以来都认为槟城的人文气息要比怡保来得浓厚, 也自然集中了许多有特色的咖啡馆。在大家的心目中槟城保留着百年历史的文物, 即使是百年历史的建筑物都保持良好, 相比之下槟城做得比其他地方来得完善。其实怡保也有很多百年历史的建筑, 很遗憾政府却没有好好保留及发展, 搞到很多旧店被废弃, 真让人可惜。从去年开始渐渐有集团发展怡保, 将死气沉沉的怡保忽然间变得有生气, 热闹起来, 也带来了许多外来遊客。现代人开始吹起了怀旧风, 老板看准了这点, 在旧街场买了好几家旧店开了这间Burps&Giggles。这咖啡馆的风格就是保留建物的原有风貌, 以DIY装饰的配搭, 将平凡的风格成为了不平凡, 让我感觉另有一番风味。这里将怀旧带着回忆的桌椅搬到老房子里, 模拟了一次重回以往的乐趣。
The two shophouses that have been transformed into this mini haven within, yet retaining much of the dilapidated facade on the outside. Marvel at how the heritage exterior has been left almost untouched; and if not for the signage painted in bright orange against a black and white background on the upper floor, you will probably zoom past Burps & Giggles without even noticing its presence.
Burps & Giggles座落在怡保旧街场的老店，单看门面应该很难发现它。
Funky, artistic and recycled, Burps & Giggles is the hottest spot to hang out in Ipoh. Three old shop lots sitting side by side have been rescued and lovingly adorned with bits and bobs. There has been no facelift here, just lots of make up.
Occupying two colonial-era shoplots, this quaint eatery has been steadily gaining visitors since its opening last September and you’ll understand why once you step in. It’s like the new is paying homage to the old.
Burps & Giggles 在怡保旧街场的战前老店，佔了三间店面。每一间店都是狭长型，三间各有不同的装潢设计。第一间有甜品柜台和厨房，拥挤的桌位，幽暗而喧扰。
I loved the decor and the ambiance - lots of rustic wood, kitschy vintage knick-knacks, distressed walls on one side, and a bright sunlit courtyard on the other side. Burps & Giggles is a place with lots of personality and a story to tell.
每个角落都是一种 “旧时” 的回忆，充分利用再循环的物品来装饰。墙壁上还有一幅本土画家的壁画，还有非常舒适的沙发。
Burps & Giggles interior design reflects a mix of nostalgic charm and modern art which is a treat to the eyes, every corner of the premise was carefully planned even to the slightest details.
Almost every corner of the cozy space has been decorated with quirky paintings, charming ornaments, natural foliage of greens and flowers, or rustic furnitures making their presence felt after what-could-possibly be half a century in the lurch. Many of the old furnishings are still intact with the wooden beams, shutters, ceiling and old stairs remaining as they were with some modern touches like cute signage, quirky decorative items and fun murals scattered around the shop.
Everything in this section, from the chairs down to the sugar bowl, is vintage.
Inventive design of interior is matched with an equally creative menu. Burgers, crepes, bagels, sandwiches and spuds provide the canvas, while innovative toppings and fillings make the artwork. There are healthy, decadent and vegetarian options to satisfy every artist’s fancy.
Just reading the wall menu stimulates salivation and animation. Sweet crepes with exciting fillings such as pears, Mars chunks, mascarpone and ginger butterscotch, draw dribbles. Bagels topped with foie gras mousse, smoked duck and oven dried roma tomatoes too may make the reader’s heart skip a beat.
It’s a maze of intrigue. Everywhere the eye looks it’s confronted with new ways to use old things.

I did not expect to find such a cool concept cafe in Ipoh. Burps & Giggles is a really nice spot in the old town of Ipoh 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. 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.
窗外是城市的漩涡, Burps & Giggles 内却如此的平静, 它的怀旧色彩带有艺术的气息, 有过风光年月的城市总是热衷于缅怀。我特别喜欢这间咖啡馆，因为这间的风格就是怀旧,唯一的特色就是一柱一砖还保留着原始的味道。这家咖啡店是的设计充满了旧怡保的风格，室内与室外都有着翠绿的植物，富有艺术性的壁画，提供客人非常舒适的用餐环境。
