Olive Garden
About two weeks ago I was on a shopping excursion with my best friend Travis and it was quite late so we headed over to Olive Garden for Dinner. After waiting all day to eat we were both starving! We definitely ordered more food than we could handle.
I ordered the Braised Short Rib; it came with a Mushroom Risotto and Green beans. It also came with soup or salad and of course there endless breadsticks! I chose the minestrone soup
We also ordered there Sampler Appetizer I cant recall exactly what this is called but you can pick two or three different appetizers. We chose Fried Calamari, stuffed Mushrooms and Fried Ravioli.
Ill start with our Appetizer.
My favorite part was the stuffed mushrooms! They were delicious, the best mushrooms Ive ever eaten. The stuffing was flavorful and rich but it didnt over power the natural flavor of the mushroom. The mushrooms tasted really fresh and were nice and hot! Couldnt have asked for anything better. The calamari was good, it was a little chewy, nice and crispy. The ravioli I wouldnt order again. Im not a huge ravioli fan ad these are good but Id rather have more of the mushrooms instead!
The minestrone soup was delicious! I dont eat beans so I just ate around them, but I was craving a tomato based soup. I LOVE Olive Gardens soups theyre always good.
Now onto my main course the braised short ribs with mushroom risotto and green beans. I wouldnt order this again. I am not a huge fan of ribs at all and the sauce that you can see surrounding everything was super sweet. Im not a huge fan of sweet things I prefer spicier or savory dishes. The risotto was AMAZING though I would order that just as a side. It was cooked perfectly and it didnt even need salt. The green beans were just steamed green beans, cant go wrong there!
Over all I was okay because I had eaten a lot of breadsticks and the mushrooms and the added risotto filled me up, but a warning if you want to order something savory or spicy this isnt the dish to order!
