For those from Ipoh, this is a cafe that needs no introduction.

Buku Tiga Lima is located right beside Burps and Giggles and under their management as well. There are no signboards indicating its presence, only an aged sign outside showing that it used be a tailor. So if you’ve just had a satisfying meal at B&G and like something sweet, have a look at their selection. They have sweet and savory crepes, bagels and churros for you to choose from.

Address: 93 and 95, Jalan Sultan Yussuf, 30000, Ipoh, Perak

Tel: 05-2426188

Operating Hours : 8am – 8pm. Closed on Tuesdays


4) Missing Marbles



If you were to drive by Jalan Sultan Yussuf, you may be forgiven for thinking that the shop with a couple of spectacles on the yellow signboard is an optometrist. If you were to pay closer attention, you might find a small unassuming sign hanging by the pillar giving you a clue as to what’s really inside. Missing Marbles, also under the management of Burps and Giggles, boasts a more Asian theme with offerings like ramen, mee siam and rojak.

Address: 99, Jalan Sultan Yussuf, 30000, Ipoh, Perak
