A quick visit to the quirky and fun Burps and Giggles and adjoining Buku Tiga Lima in Ipoh.
Call me lazy or old-fashioned but I rather have a printed menu with pictures than to walk all over the place to look for several chalkboard menus. I know is a hip thing but it is not helpful at all.
The mechanical waitress, at first, said everything is good when I asked for a recommendation. She then suggested the Wagyu Beef Burger as a signature dish. I had to ask the price.
As I was photographing the fish and chips, a staff member brought an egg which they forgot while preparing the burger. It was a nice and honest touch but we wouldn’t have noticed anyway. We were ordering blind. It is OK for a hawker-style place like Williams in SS4 to just put the menu and prices on a white board. Wait a minute. Williams charges even more. Haha. At least, he puts it all in one place.
Turns out to be a pretty decent burger (@ RM 28) but not spectacular. Your taste may differ. Try their Fish and Chips, if you don’t take beef.
