The Overview

The Italian-inspired menu and Midcentury Modern–esque surrounds at Soul Kitchen set the place apart on Peranakan-mansion-heavy Muntri Street. The venture of transplanted Berliners Michelle Yim and Tonio Neuhaus features a big and breezy front verandah, a revolving list of daily pastas, thin-crust pizzas and tramezzini (grilled sandwiches) scrawled on a blackboard in the dining room, and a friendly pooch named Forest. Kuala Lumpur native and foodie Teoh pulls a mean espresso and writes up the day's dishes, which might include minced-pork-rich spaghetti Bolognese (Soul Kitchen is Penang's only non-halal Italian spot); tramezzini of salami and cheese on whole-grain bread slathered with sweet onion relish; or oyster-mushroom pizza. The weekend special is a Malaysian rarity: scrumptious tiramisu, Soul Kitchen-style—very alcoholic.
