I consider Olea to be one of the most underrated restaurants in the city, and I prefer it stay that way since it’s crowded enough with it’s small and tight space. It’s away from the hustle of Polk St. so not many people probably come across it, unless you’re on a cable car, in which you’re likely to be a tourist and somewhat clueless as to what this place has to offer.
One of my favorite things to eat is their version of French toast, called the Challah custard toast. It’s thick and moist yet not very heavy. It has a very custardy feel. It’s served with real maple syrup and berries on top, but my favorite topping is the he korintji cinnamon, which according to Google is an Indonesian cinnamon. I wouldn’t mind having this for dessert every now and then.
On a side note, Happy Birthday, Mom! This meal deserves a family picture. None of us look related at all, huh?
