Recently opened at Pulteney Street in Adelaide, Hut & Soul Eatery specialises in serving various types of Singaporean, Indonesian and Malaysian foods. Aside from familiar dishes such as Murtabak, Hut & Soul Eatery also offers a few more unique dishes such as Avocado Chips, which as its name suggests, consists of deep-fried slices of avocado served with a kaffir lime and chilli mayonnaise dip.
Also known as Sayur Asem, the Curry Vegetable Lodeh is a popular Indonesian dish consisting of various vegetables cooked in a tamarind based soup. All the vegetables had the right amount of bite to them and the glass noodles added a bit of extra texture. The curry gravy delivered a potent spicy flavour with a hint of sourness.

We were delighted with the generous size of the chicken in their Sanur Goreng Chicken, whose crisp coating contrasted well with the perfectly cooked flesh. The sweet lime Balinese sauce made this dish great for complementing their spicier dishes. The lettuce leaves helped to balance out the rich taste of the sauce with their freshness.

One of the smaller sized dishes available, the barramundi fillet used in the Fish Sambal Salsa was cooked perfectly. The topping of chilli and tomato relish gave the dish a fresh appearance but be warned that it may be a bit too spicy for some tastes.

For a dish that is not so spicy, you may choose to try the Crispy Tofu Pocket. The filling of bean sprouts, cucumber and carrot partnered well with the fried tofu. The peanut sauce tied everything together with its nutty flavour. While it normally comes as a serving of three pieces, the staff offered to increase the portion size to four pieces as we were a group of four.
