This, really! Ouch at Oolaa is really what my stomach screamed on seeing this plate for something that had pesto!
What I imagined based on the description was a vibrant green plate with a generous serving of pesto topped on part baked, part smooth and soft gnocchi.
What I saw and got was this big plate of deep fried gnocchi with olives and greens, and a meagre drizzle of pesto.
The gnocchi itself was done well, a nice chewy texture having been fried – first of it’s trying for me. But what disappointed me was the pesto or the lack of it! I did ask for some more pesto and they gladly bought out another (albeit small again) portion in a little bowl.
The portion was huge and two people could easily share it with an appetizer.
They have lunch specials but risotto was the only vegetarian entree there which I didn’t want, so I went with a stand-alone pasta.
The place is huge, popular with families with kids for their brunch.
What was good was their service – and with a group of more than 15, they managed it pretty well.
