This historic location has seen a change in restaurant ownerships over the years like Blake’s Steakhouse, Picassos Tapas, and La Pinata but trust us Olla Cocina is a keeper. This franchise will stay put at the 17 North San Pedro location for many years to come.
The food was top of the line in it’s taste, texture and presentation. Amongst the cast’s recommendations from the Olla menu we started with some of Olla’s homemade chips salsa and guacamole the guacamole had a unbelievable taste with small tomatoes and the Wild Salad was a popular item, the squash soup had bacon bits in it and was also a favorite, of the course recommendations please try, ceviche verde, chilaquiles verde, sopes, roasted chicken, the salmon plate, or the grilled hanger steak. With these selections our panelists loved them all.
