OLE EXPRESS - Hot Food Delivered

by - 12:26 AM

I love getting food delivered to my doorstep, as much as I love eating out. Food can be enjoyed anywhere as long as it is good food, even better if it is great food. A recent discovery made me go on a food binge, ordering just one item didn't seem legit so obviously, I ordered four, without regrets, burp! Let me take you through an appetizing experience with Ole Express.
























Ole Express used to be a restaurant, Cafe Ole, which closed for some time. It reopened, as mouthwatering as ever, as a food delivery service. You order what you want from their menu and they deliver it, piping hot and sooner than most, to your doorstep. They are also not restricted to just one location in Karachi; their delivery service is open for Clifton, Defence, MT Khan Road and I.I.Chundrigar Road, with more options coming in the near future.

I was offered to review four items from their new menu so I went for Peppery Deep Fried Shrimps and Crispy Chicken Strips as starters, Steak Ole and Free Form Lasagna as main courses. That is not all that they offer; the menu has an array of Continental dishes that you can check HERE.

Starters: Peppery Deep Fried Shrimps and Crispy Chicken Strips

Seafood of any kind is always welcome. I was very pleased to bite into non-greasy batter, which is what I rarely expect from anything deep fried. The Peppery Deep Fried Shrimps were not hard. You can either cook shrimps or you can't, thankfully Ole knows how to do it right. Other than the juicy shrimps, the batter had enough peppery taste to eat without the aid of any dip. The better was not chunky either which made every bite a happy one. I do wish, however, that there was enough serving, perhaps at least 6 bites rather than 4.

Price: PKR.490 (serves 1)

Crispy Chicken Strips, one of the safest things to order because you can't hate then unless they really are a disaster. The main thing is to keep a good ratio between the chicken and the batter. There can't be too much chicken or batter. Another important element is to be careful not to burn the batter. Golden/orange brown is good, dark brown is cringe worthy.

In Ole's case even though the chicken inside was soft and moist there was more batter than meat. the batter was seasoned correctly but a balance in both core elements can lead to a more relishing bite. An overall good item with a potential to be even more flavoursome.

Price: PKR.430 (Can serve 2, served with french fries)

Main Course: Steak Ole

More than anything, I was happy to actually see my steak rather than a thick gunk of rich sauces hiding it from plain sight. I am not a fan of eating steak in my country much, along with a few other dishes; food places rarely get it right.

Steak Ole was sent to me well done, however, the beef was intact with all its juicy moisture along with the flavours of the sauces; Jalapeno Sauce, Homemade Barbecue Sauce & Spicy Chili Sauce. I didn't find the need to use any other sauce when I was devouring it with the mixed vegetables. The meat had a sharp piquancy which was pleasantly exciting on the palate. The sauteed vegetables were packed with crunch despite being cooked. A stimulating dish with the right sized portion. This is also a healthy option for protein lovers if they omit the fries.

Price: PKR.730 (serves 1)



Main Course: Free Form Lasagna

Lasagna tends to be one of the pleaser dishes. The Free Form Lasagna from Ole Express was not boring. The core ingredients, other than the Lasagna itself, were varied without overpowering each other. The ragu was creamy and spicy, the pasta was silky and not too thick. The toppings certainly made the dish look pretty but can make it more flavoursome if mixed within rather than on top. The chicken was soft and worked well with the rest of the flavors as well as texture. Every bite was defined, you could taste every bit of the pasta, chicken, ragu, cheese and enjoy it all at the same time.

It was a relief to taste a well-balanced lasagna, rather than an overly rich cheese fest with no flavor. Yes, we all love cheese but a dish needs to have some depth too! This is a savoury dish recommended to those who don't want to experiment with their food and have a hearty, fulfilling meal.

Price: PKR.590 (serves 2)

I had an overall pleasant experience with Ole Express and will be ordering more from them in the future. I have my eyes on the Avocado Salad and Mexican Red Snapper.

I would recommend you to go through the menu, control your drooling, and order something you want to try. Currently, Ole Express only delivers in Karachi.

You can see the MENU on their Facebook Page.
