First Review by happycowgirl


Go go go go. Sooooooo good. The fried plantains, beans and rice, rice and spinach, veggie gumbo (coconut sauce is AMAZING), are all great. For extra yum get the corosol juice. It's so good. It's made from a fruit called soursop elsewhere in the carribbean and it's blended with ice. The kids I nanny declared it amazing -- somewhere between pear, pineapple, lichi, and a hint of mango. Seriously. Get it!

Olga is super friendly and awesome also!

Only caveat -- you choose your spice level on a scale of 1-10. At most places I choose "medium". This does not mean to order 5 at Chez Olga's! Three is the most I can handle!

Pros: Delicious, Friendly service
