Part of NEXUS Bangsar South's new Chillin' At Nexus campaign brought me to SOULed OUT Nexus Bangsar South. Now I've been to their other outlet in Sri Hartamas a number of times, but haven't had the chance yet to dine and drink at this outlet. Check out below on what my fellow foodies and friends had that evening.

SOULed OUT latest outlet in Nexus Bangsar South KL continues to be one of the best restaurants in Kuala Lumpur, proudly driven with SO lip-smacking food, SO thirst quenching drinks, SO fabulous theme parties and SO personable service.
|Lychee Mojitos - RM28|
SOULed OUT Bangsar South is a restaurant showcasing a cozy, relaxed ambience during the day, churning out dishes such as Crumbed Fish Sandwich, Classic Homemade Beef Burger, Caesar Salad, etc. for casual dining. As evening falls, soulful spirits arise to keep the night going.
|Lychee Martini - RM28|
Mojitos, Sangrias, Margarita, Cocktails start to take the centerstage (though you can start ordering them from 12PM onwards), accompanied by a complete ” SOULed OUT Bangsar South menu ” featuring an array of Western, Northern Indian, Asian delights to satisfy the hunger.
|Cheese Nachos - RM23|
We kickstarted our feast that evening at SOULed OUT Nexus Bangsar South with a rather large platter of Cheese Nachos. Strictly meant for sharing, unless you have a really big appetite. We got layers of crispy corn chips, towered up with cheese, jalapeno peppers and Mexican salsa. I was told this dish is a favourite with patrons who come to chill out and drink with fellow friends after working hours.
|Mango Prawn Salad - RM23|
|Summertime Salad - RM23|
Two very different salad, yet equally delectable, the Mango Prawn Salad and Summertime Salad served by SOULed OUT has that cocktail of taste that delights the senses. The Mango Prawn Salad is made of succulent prawns, plump mangoes, avocado slice in a zesty dressing while the Summertime Salad has grilled seafood, orange segments, alfalfa sprouts, lettuce, croutons tossed with homemade vinaigrette dressing.
|Deep Fried Calamari - RM25|
|Satay - RM18|
Snacks and bites that delights the senses. Deep fried to a crisp at the sides, the Deep Fried Calamari is made from these bouncy, chewy squid rings jacketed with secret batter recipe that results in crispy texture contrast. Satay! My all-time favourite no matter where I have it. Here it comes in a dozen of chicken satay, beef satay or mix of half dozen for each, your choice. I found it to be a bit too lean for my enjoyment, as I always love some fats in between the skewered meat.
|Prawn Aglio Olio - RM28|
|Sake San Pizza - RM34|
Pasta and Pizzas, both having the same 'P' alphabet, but are in two different worlds. SOULed OUT whips up decent pastas, be it a traditional Italian Prawn Aglio Olio or pasta with a creative twist like the East meets West Soft Shell Crab Pasta with curry leaves and chili flakes. That evening we had the Prawn Aglio Olio with fresh prawns served with al-dente spaghetti. The Sake San Pizza is something very unique to me, with ingredients made out of salmon sashimi, roe, cherry tomatoes, lollo rosso, Japanese mayo and and wasabi.
|Fried Beef Noodles - RM16|
|Pad Thai - RM16|
Some of the Asian cuisine off SOULed OUT's menu which we had that evening was the Fried Beef Noodle and the Pad Thai. The Fried Beef Noodle tastes like what I use to have back in Penang, the 'wa tan hor', with plenty of egg thrown into the mix. Pretty good taste to boot. Their Pad Thai is a cross between Thai-style Pad Thai with local char koay teow. Not as sweet as the Thailand version, but it has that slight 'wok hei' flavour to the dish.
|Chicken Cordon 'Blurr' - RM26|
Not sure why the name has the 'Blurr' word in it, but the Chicken Cordon 'Blurr' is a must-try dish off their western menu. The dish is a wonderful combination of melted cheese, smoky ham and sausage wrapped together with a wrap of succulent boneless whole chicken leg.
|Lamb Shank - RM39|
Lamb shank lovers would like the version that is served here. Braised till fork-tender, dressed in a bed of creamy, flavouful brown sauce on a bed of mashed potatoes and vegetables, it's a nice dish. I was pretty glad it wasn't too big though, as I've had giant ones which took a huge effort to finish.
|Chicken Makanwala + Pulao Rice - RM24|
SOULed OUT serves some rather good Northern Indian cuisine as well, with the Chicken Makanwala being one of them . Chicken cubes stewed in spicy creamy onion gravy, it's great taken with the pulao rice on the side. I mush preferred the next dish though.
|Sizzling Lamb Cutlets -RM35 and Garlic Naan - RM3|
I truly love the crowd favourite, which is the Sizzling Lamb Cutlets. Strong tasty flavours hit your tastebuds the moment you bite into each piece of meat. Each piece is flavoured with Indian herbs which goes very well with the accompanying Garlic Naan. Truly recommend this dish.
|Tiramisu - RM16|
|Lava Cake - RM16|
We ended our feast of good food at SOULed OUT NEXUS Bangsar South with their sweet desserts. It was a sweet treat with the Lava Cake and Tiramisu literally coating our tastebuds with sweetness. Lava Cake is the highlight, but other selections such as Ice Kacang with Haagen Dazs Ice Cream, Salted Caramel Apple & Guava Tart, Rocky Road Brownie with Haagen Dazs Ice Cream, and Tropical Palvova should be tried out as well!
|Spicy Lemon Drops - Single (RM20) A tray of 6 (RM90), shots for that extra kick|
