Food with the soul of jazz
18 June, 2018
Two faces. Two moods. By day, Souliquid Restaurant & Bar offers sustenance for the stomach; by night, it feeds the soul.
Located just outside the lobby of Four Points Sheraton in Puchong, its name Souliquid is etched into the mat at the door.
Step inside and one can’t help but notice the whimsical but cosy sofa seats in hues of deep fuschia and cobalt blue along the tall glass windows.
|Cheese Plate with Wine Promotion|
These are perfect to lounge in when the moon rises and the stage is set for live performances of mainly Cantonese and Mandarin jazz. I do appreciate that, unlike most lounges, there’s no smell of stale smoke, beer and whiskey although Souliquid has been in operations for two years now.
Souliquid has a well-stocked bar and often have specials such as the on-going Cheese Plate promotion at RM199++ paired with Marques de Caceres Crianza from Rioja in northern Spain.
The medium-bodied wine with gorgeous deep plum hues has ripe cherry notes with a spicy finish. Easy on the palate and pairs well with the platter of Cheddar, Aged Cheddar, Brie and Blue. You also get crackers with slivers of salami and ham.
But if you’re there at lunchtime or looking for an early dinner, the menu is pretty satisfying too. On weekdays, a set lunch menu comprises main course, soup and ice lemon tea. Priced from RM13.90 nett.
|Chili Chili Bang Bang|
|Brochettes are grilled prawns wrapped with bacon|
|Gambas Al Pil Pil is prawns in hot olive oil bath|
We smell the Gambas Al Pilpil (RM28) before we see it. The aroma of prawn, garlic and rosemary permeates the air and teases the tastebuds. The bowl is filled with crunchy prawns in a hot olive oil “bath”, with grated garlic, Italian herbs and a sprinkle of chilli flakes. Dunk the toasted bread fingers in to soak up the fragrant oil.
|Grilled Lamb Rack with honey-mustard sauce|
We are tempted to try more appetisers but the mains beckon.
|Guinness Braised Lamb Shank is a luscious chunk of meat|
|Souliquid Meat Balls|
|Chicken Cordon Bleu with roasted vegetables and mushroom mustard gravy|
|Garlic-Herb Roast Pork Knuckle is a whole kg of meat|
|Pork Lover Platter is meant for sharing|
|Shrimp Pizza with parmesan and blue cheese|
