Chez Olga - Eastown/Grand Rapids

rainsux | Dec 31, 201305:43 AM     1

Chez Olga is a family owned/operated caribbean restaurant located @ 1441 Wealthy.

GREAT flavors. A wide variety of choices on the menu. Hot food hot. Cold food cold. Clean. Ten levels of spice/heat available.

Our party of six [6] arrived at 1PM and ordered various soups and gumbo. One guy working the front. One person in the kitchen. From the time we arrived until we paid & left; 75 minutes ... for six bowls of "soup", waters & one coffee. i.e. Slow. But ours was an after-Xmas family lunch, so the time passed easily.

The base for the shrimp soup and noodle soup was very rich; buttery rich. The shrimp soup was ~1 cup. Plenty of shrimp and vegetables. Given the rich base/stock, it was plenty.

My SiL ordered noodle soup. Essentially, a larger serving of the shrimp soup, but substituted noodles for the shrimp. She could not finish the base/stock - too rich for her.

My BiL ordered gumbo @ spice/heat-level six. Said it was very good, but he was chugging water and sweating profusely. <g>

Plenty of space for staff and customers to circulate without unnecessary bump & grind. Good/free WiFi service available.

I look forward to my return!
