Burps & Giggles and sister cafe Buku Tiga Lima in Ipoh specialise in serving eye candy for food bloggers. While the food is stylish and tasty, it is the unique ambience that attracts. Imagine dining in a dimly-lit junkyard or besi buruk shop. Mismatched furniture, dilapidated walls, graffiti-like menu and rusty antique items. Add clever naming of menu items to the arty decor and the restaurant soon became a hipster’s wet dream. As a result, the place is showered with explicit hashtags on social media; foodporn, foodgasm, mouthgasm, eyegasm, vintageporn, besiburukporn, etc.
Even their take-away window, facing a rustic but smelly side path, is photogenic from the outside. Pictures of the interior and food coming up next.
