Kanz Bitar

In this week’s culinary crusade, staff reporter Kanz Bitar visited Olive Garden for the first time, selecting Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara.

Olive Garden delights at steep price

For this weeks’ crusade I went to Olive Garden, which used to be a restaurant that got a lot of hype, but over the past few years I’ve barely heard of. Since I’ve never eaten there, I decided to go to see why people love it so much or do not.

I ordered the Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara. It was really creamy which I loved. The shrimp was soft and crispy. The chicken was ok; there wasn’t anything to it really. However, the whole meal overall was really good. Even though I wasn’t able to finish it, I ate my leftovers the next day and I think it tasted even better the second day.

As for their famous breadsticks, they were amazing. They were soft and salty and buttery, so tasty. 

The food was good and the restaurant was nice, but the food was more expensive than I thought it would be. I spent about $26 on my meal. But it was probably just what I got, I’m sure there are cheaper orders. For that reason I will go back and try some of the other dishes they offer.
