We waited for a good 20 minutes before our meals were served. We didn't mind waiting because being a frequent diner, we are looking forward to freshly cooked food each time. The resto-bar is breathed to life by a one-man team - Joaquin Chaves or Oax, who manages everything from kitchen (the one and only cook), to cashiering, to entertaining guests. Super hands on like any restaurant owner really should be.

Before The Hubby and I discovered Soul Kitchen, I didn't like Kimchi. Its pungent smell turns me off and I wouldn't even dare touch it, much more taste it. It was that fateful day when we went to Soul Kitchen that converted me to love kimchi - my order of Chicken Wings Adobado came with a small platito of what looked like coleslaw (in the dark). I instantly fell in love with it at first bite, so to speak. I later learned that their kimchi is homemade by Oax himself.
