As a longstanding staple of Desa Sri Hartamas, Souled Out is a restaurant cum bar that offers both Asian and Western food offerings. Despite its long presence in the neighbourhood, the establishment is still buzzing with activity with families, expats and even smaller parties still frequenting the place. The Summertime salad — a mix of leafy greens, oranges and grilled seafood — comes highly recommended and goes great with the capsicum vinaigrette. The seafood marinara comes with squid, mussels and prawns and a touch of chilli flakes give the pasta dish a nice kick.
The sizzling lamb cutlet, another recommended dish, is cooked in a mix of Malay and Indian styles and it works to interesting results. The meat is slightly tough but tasty, the long beans are crunchy and the sauce is delicious.
The signature lava cake with ice-cream oozes chocolate sauce and is a sweet and tasty way to end the meal.
There are two house pours, the Richard Hamilton Lot 148 Merlot and the Mcguigan Bin 4000 Cabernet Sauvignon, both from Australia. The wine list isn’t too extensive but it does have a few options from well-known countries that produce wine. The Merlot is a little dry but sweet with a soothing finish. It is pleasant to drink and goes well with the seafood marinara pasta and better with the sizzling lamb cutlet.
