Sisters Crispy Popiah

Lunch was popiah from Sisters Crispy Popiah. This eye-catching stall has been around for about 2 to 3 years if I'm not mistaken. They're at the Lower Ground floor of Mid Valley. I'm pretty sure they have other carts elsewhere. One roll of popiah costs RM2.50. More costly than the other popiah out there but this is pretty good and I don't mind paying the price.

As the name suggests, the popiah is crispy, thanks to some secret ingredient that is added in the popiah roll. I noticed that the popiah skin has a light green colour to it, and is thicker than other popiah skins I've eaten. They are quite generous with the fillings too and it tastes very satisfying. Here's a glimpse of it (those little brown crunchies are the crispies).

They also do catering for parties, and insist on preparing them just an hour or so before your party begins because they're not so keen on having the popiah go soggy and not live up to their "Crispy" image.

For a small cart like this they have plenty of staff. There were 4 to man the booth, and it was definitely good business. Here are the ladies, hard at work. Don't see the actual Sisters there anymore. Sign of good business eh?

You see them everywhere nowadays. I quite like their popiah and will once in a while indulge in them.

Hey, I love the popiah at Mid Valley too. It is indeed very crispy...especially if you eat them immediately after they made them :).
