Located at Lebuh Muntri @ Penang, Soul Kitchen is a very unique and special place to dine here in Penang. Why so?
Well, first of all, it’s a small family business, operate by the couple Michele and Tonio. The building is already quite a history itself and is part of the heritage pre-war building.
Besides, rather than serving the traditional local Chinese/Malay/Indian hawker food you can find all around in Penang, it served Italian food instead.
My beautiful Cappuccino @ RM5.
And LY’s freshly squeeze and flavourful Orange Juice @ RM5. Price might a bit steep you might say as we are not dining in a air-conditioned restaurant, but the orange juice is pure and good, unlike those you get in normal coffee shop where you taste water and sugar syrup more rather than orange.
Instead of giving a beautifully designed menu handled to you to order your choice of food, all the food served are hand written on the chalkboard on the wall. While for the beverage menu, customers are given a hand-written paper though.
It’s breakfast time, and I had their English breakfast with Bacon @ RM9.
Nothing special, well it’s just normal breakfast although the bacon is nice.
The Yoghurt Muesli on Papaya @ RM9 is something really special though as I never saw it before. Home made yoghurt pair with muesli, and the original sweetness of the papaya, what a healthy breakfast!
I really enjoy myself eating here, quiet and slow pace, relaxing and reading my newspaper while sipping some coffee. Excellent! I will definitely come back here for their lunch or dinner menu!
However, my dear Michele and Tonio, please don’t commercialize yourself too much or by expanding too fast. Stay as it is now, don’t be another Lang Sae Lee @ Tan Jetty where the quality of food drop rapidly when they become famous. Please don’t make us Penangtie lost another gateway for breakfast.
