Sis & Co @ Petaling Jaya

The Kok sisters are doin' it for themselves, ringin' on their own family-run restaurant in a striking warehouse space at an unlikely location, on a street in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara that's primarily populated by car washes & auto repair workshops.

The menu remains in a soft-launch phase, with many top temptations still to come (expect an eight-hour-smoked Boston Butt burger, a chorizo bagel & much more). But there's enough to entice us here now, including the intriguing Fiery Wings (RM18), marinated with Sarawak peppers & Ghost chillies (one of the world's hottest chilli peppers). Never fear - the chicken wings prove more pleasure than pain, with a burn that scorches only lightly, signalling that the kitchen makes sparing use of the Ghost pepper marinade. Its spiciness suits us, but since the menu mentions Ghost chillies, we'd have liked it to be more brutal.

The Kok siblings also run a wholesale pork business, so it's no surprise that the hog strives to steal the spotlight, with crowd-pleasers like hickory-smoked baby back ribs (RM28), carbonara pasta that's bursting with bacon (RM18) & chicharrons (RM8). Our favourite Kapiti ice cream is available for dessert, with German beer & a Speculoos-flavoured latte to wash it all down.

    1. Rebecca: yeah, i like places with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow us to look outside freely - but i guess the steep rentals for these spaces would be a barrier for many budding cafe owners ...

  8. Quite a few of cafes these days use warehouse space or are set up in the vicinity of auto repair workshops like WhupWhup & Beam probably because of the cheaper rental. Nice glass walls although the outside scenery (in this particular case) isn't the best looking...hehe! ;D

    1. Contact.ewew: this place does remind me of Beam & WhupWhup in some ways, though each of these places does have its own distinctive character, heh. yeah, i'd have preferred a different view outside, but it did add to the authenticity of the surroundings :D
