STREET food is synonymous with Malaysian culture, and local entrepreneurs like the Lim sisters and their popiah offering are tapping into a massive market by bringing well-loved street food into a comfortable setting in shopping malls.

Sisters Crispy Popiah is a pioneer in bringing simple but tasty street food to shopping malls and their signature pandan skin popiah, based on a recipe handed down by their mother and grandmother, has become a household name.
