Oli's Kitchen

Thank you to our sponsor for providing this dining complimentary experience! 

Local comfort food and all-day breakfast comes to Puck's Alley! Oli's Kitchen recently opened in the space many locals will refer to it as "the old Curry House". For those who still aren't sure where we're referring to, it's in Puck's Alley facing University Avenue, next to Nijiya. Parking is free for the first hour (just exit the parking lot within an hour - no validation is required).  

Being that I work minutes away from Oli's, I jumped at the invitation from the restaurant to come check out their offerings. I'm always looking out for great eats near work.

Since the Philly Cheese Egg Rolls are their #1 seller, we had to try them. These were crispy, fluffy, with a nice amount of Philly style steak and cheese in each roll. The house-made spicy cilantro sauce really completes it - highly recommend!

Being a fan of fried chicken, I had to try the Garlic Chicken and Salt n Pepper Fried Chicken, with the Fried Rice upgrade (+$2.60). 

Both styles of chicken were crisp, moist, and delicious! I can't decide which one I liked more, because honestly I liked BOTH! The garlic chicken was sweet and perfectly glazed (read: not soggy!). Those who prefer lightly seasoned minimalist-style fried chicken will appreciate the salt n pepper chicken.   If you want to try both, just ask half garlic half salt n pepper. And don't forget to upgrade the fried rice!  It's worth it.

To balance the savoriness of the fried chicken and Philly Cheese Egg Rolls, we finished our meal with the Peanut Butter Banana Stuffed French Toast, which is another top seller.  

It's very Instagrammable, and very sweet! 

Picture ultra soft sweet bread, stuffed with banana filling, topped with a peanut butter drizzle.  An order comes with three slices - you'll definitely want to share this because it's so sweet. Consider ordering it as a dessert like how I did!

Just a side note on the atmosphere - it's casual and loud. Not the ideal place for a romantic dinner, but it's perfect for those who want to lean back and take their time catching up on life while enjoying some awesome local kine grinds! And don't forget, breakfast is served ALL DAY LONG! They also offering catering!

Oli's Kitchen is open daily from 8 am - 8 pm.
