Revisiting Ola’s Flavors in Taipei! December 11, 2010

I thought I’d start off my latest trip to Taipei with a visit to one of my favourite places — the sensational Swedish restaurant, Ola’s Flavors.  In the eleven or so months since my last trip, Ola and his wife Stephanie have had a baby girl, which has made them extremely busy, though I am happy to report that the quality of the food is as good as ever.

I had been dreaming of Ola’s famous Swedish meatballs ever since the first time I went there, and of course I had it again this time.  We also had the pork main again (which I recall now is from Ola’s grandmother’s recipe) as well as the apple pie dessert.  I won’t bother posting the photos for those dishes again — you’ll be able to find them here (together with information on how to get there, etc).

This time, we got a new starter — crab salad on toast.  Great mix of flavours and textures with a tangy mayo.  For one of the other main courses we got the veal chops, which were sublime.  For dessert, we also got a rhubarb crumble — which is very similar to the apple pie but in my opinion even better as it has a thicker pastry and is crunchier on the outside.  Makes me drool just thinking about it.

Without further ado, there are the pics!

Veal chops -- even better than the lamb chops we had last time

 

Crab salad on toast -- even better than it looks

Rhubarb crumble -- possibly their best dessert yet

Can’t wait to go there again!
