Sisters Kitchen @ Foodhive, G Tower, KL

Convenient and decently priced place for makan in the heart of KL..........

Hello hello... This is an invited review, k? Please find my usual disclaimers as follows :)
1) I have not been paid to write this, but neither have I paid a cent for my meal,
2) I will still be as objective as possible re. the food/ restaurant, and
3) If I go back to the restaurant incognito and find that the food/service is horribly different from this experience, I will amend my ratings here...
(Again: This review is (more than) a little delayed *blush*...)

Lunch, especially for us office minions (during weekdays) can be such a pleasure/ pain:
1) You get to escape the office for an hour - Pleasure! :)
2) Darn. It's only an hour, so you can't go far... Traffic/finding parking can be pretty bad too - Pain! :(

Luckily, with the new(ish) Food Hive in the LG floor of G Tower, there are ample food choices, within walking distance of many of the major buildings in KL.
(Eg. Lembaga Tabung Haji, PNB Darby Park, Ampang Park - which conveniently, is equipped with an LRT station, etc)

One interesting eatery in the Foodhive is Sister's Kitchen - a casual restaurant, with a range of local favourites on the menu:
The main area of Sisters is covered, but open air but with ample ventilation....

We were served quite a lot of food that day, so I'll try to keep the descriptions short. :)

- Original Popiah (RM 3.90++) and Egg Roll Popiah (RM 4.90++):
One taste and I realised, "Oh! No wonder the name of the restaurant seemed so familiar! It's from the same people who created those yummy crispy popiahs (sold in most shopping centres)!". So, needless to say, both were yummy although I still prefer the original version. :D
Original on the left and egg-y on the right :)....

- Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken (RM 14.80++):
A good sized portion for the price (considering KL city center prices) with all the elements of a fairly enjoyable carbilicious nasi lemak.
A well loved Malaysian dish....

- Seafood Siam Laksa (RM 14.80++):
Thick glass noodles in a creamy laksa broth. There was a reasonable amount of stuff (prawns, garoupa slices and squid) to justify the price and the rich flavour was sinfully satisfying.
Do not think about the calories - once in a while is ok, right?....

- Seafood Soup Noodle (RM 12.80++):
Kuey teow noodles in a clear soup with prawns, squid and garoupa fish slices. While the soup was just a tad too salty, it was otherwise a nice dish to have when you need some soup-y comfort food.
A less sinful option....

- Penang Rojak (RM 9++):
To be completely honest, I don't like this style of rojak as the only time I appreciate prawn paste is when it's added into assam laksa. The fruits tasted nice though... :)
A love it or hate it dish, IMHO....

- Mango Passion (RM 8++):
Ok. This kind of dessert I like. :D
Refreshing with a nice sweetness from the mango sauce and fresh mango chunks.
Perfect for the hot and humid Malaysian weather....

- Ice Kacang (RM oops):
Another great way to cool down is with this generously stacked up ice kacang. :)
Also very refreshing....

- 4 Heavenly Kings (RM 5++):
I really enjoyed this - their signature drinks which is a concoction of tea, and 3 types of cocoa.
Slurp....

Oh man...
I still remember how happy/ ridiculously full I was that day.
(Too much food! But I ain't complaining ;P)

SHOUT OUT:
Thanks to Alex and Gladys for the invite! :D

So, it's: Convenient location in the heart of KL, with a range of interesting local dishes BUT nothing bad to say really, some may say it's a bit pricey but the serving size is generous enough....

the four heavenly kings look delicious!!

Sean said...

yay, it's open till pretty late! it's usually pretty difficult to get popiah at night, rite (or maybe it's my imagination, heh) :D

J said...

to "Joe" who is constantly craving:
Yeah man, all that and more! - felt like a stuffed pig after that. :)

to dropsofcontentment:
Thoroughly indeed! What a day! Haha...
(Actually, I was lazy and got myself a LX5 instead of a GF2 / GF 3... Was kinda afraid I'll lose control and buy all sorts of lenses too)

to Michelle Chin:
It was yummy. :) And not too sweet! (or maybe it's because I requested kurang manis?)

to Sean:
Haha.. Made a small amendment to the opening hours - you can now nom on popiah only till 9pm, on weekdays, but you can start a lot earlier at 7.30am. :)

rather close to my office..this is actually one of my fave place. and since dad in law loves popiah, i normally do a takeaway for him to have for his lunch.

missyblurkit said...

being close to my office...this is one of my regular places to eat in comfort plus when i need the walk during noon.

the popiah is one of my regular takeaways for my dad in law for his lunch. like you we prefer the original but when when without choice, this is good enough:D

to missyblurkit:
What a good daughter in law! :)

Waaaa....that seafood siam laksa looks so good from where I'm sitting! I should skip a round of Subway and eat here when I'm at G Tower next time. :)

J said...

to Bangsar-bAbE:
It was rich (but just a little bit too salty) - hope u enjoy it when you try it... Its definitely more sinful/yummy than Subway. :D
