As we mentioned two posts ago, we were recently invited to GTower by Alex, to sample some of the delightful treats at FoodHive that the lucky tenants of GTower (and its surrounding buildings) get to have daily.

Pit stop #2 that Saturday brought us to Sisters Kitchen at the Lower Ground of GTower. Sisters Kitchen combines reliably good local food, at affordable prices and due to its latest location at FoodHive, GTower, I can guess that it probably is a hit with the office-going lunch crowd.
(After sampling some of their food, I now wish I had a Sisters Kitchen near my office for lunch too. ): )
Aaaah, now moving on to my favourite! For those of you who do not know, Sisters Kitchen is actually a diversification of business that originated from the yummy Crispy Sisters Popiah that can be found in almost every major shopping mall these days. The Crispy Popiah (what I like to call "new-age" popiah with crispy bits and ground peanuts, and more importantly, sans bean sprouts) is still served at their Sisters Kitchen outlets. They also do the same popiah filling in an egg roll skin now, but I still like mine with the original skin better.
(Side note: That squirt of chilli sauce on the egg roll popiah is quite killer. :S)
Of course, no local deli would be complete without my (and I believe many others!) all-time favourite Malaysian dish. The Nasi Lemak with Fried Chicken (finally, a price! - RM 14.80) here boasts of a whole chicken leg, with nice crispy skin and tender, well-marinated chicken meat. The 'kick' of the sweet-ish sambal was just nice for me (pedas food makes me look like I'm having a full-fledged flu by the end of the meal -_-), and went well with the fragrant rice.
You can also find this Malaysian favourite, a colourful ice kacang, at Sisters Kitchen; likely perfect for the scorching midday heat.
I tried the Iced 4 Heavenly Kings (RM 5), one of their recommended drinks which is a concoction of tea, and 3 types of coco, according to their menu. The outcome was an extremely rich and milky, yet smooth, mocha-esque drink. I'm not much of a coffee connoisseur at all, but this was all right.
Sisters Kitchen promises tasty local delights and I think it delivers just that. With new items being introduced into the menu every now and then, it is definitely a good place to grab a bite during the weekday with colleagues, and certainly, one of the more economical choices for lunch downtown.
