New Pizza in Skokie

Yet another kosher pizza shop is scheduled to open in Skokie very soon. It is called Soul Surfing Pizza and is located where Malibu used to be, next door to Ken's. It is under new ownership and management and I wish them well.

  1. If this is accurate it sounds like it might be good -

    1. From what I understand:

      1) It's kosher under the cRc, although the cRc is not mentioned in their signage or any observable front window cRc logo
      2) Was sold be Ken from Ken's diner to Debra who used to have something to do with the Hershey's Ice Cream shop (on Oakton St?) in Skokie
      3) Had been looking for capital until a few days ago:

      I know more, but I reserve the right to remain silent.

        interesting - if the pizza is half as good as the pictures look it will be fun to try -

          So is there a definite opening date?

          1. re: lenchik

            From what I understand, they've been open for business since 2 weeks ago.

            They were reviewed in a closed Facebook group "Chicago Jewish Central" a couple of days ago.

              They just officially opened this past weekend. So far I am hearing some good feedback. Have any of you gone yet?

      2. Went tonight - still the Malibu decor - this was their first night open - talking to the owner sound like they had a open night issues but nothing too major - They do not have to go menus yet - they do offer tasting that is $12 per person - and for each person there is a 12" pizza that you select.

        I carried out two pies tonight - Large cheese for the kids and a small italian Italian Sausage - they were thin crust - I did not ask about deep dish but now onto the pizzas - were excellent - IMHO the best Kosher pizza I have had - as good if not better than EJs -

            IMO yes- eating the sausage pizza was little disconcerting because it looked exactly like a traif pizza - but it was dleicious!
