Oola’s Kitchen is a small restaurant on Orchard Street that specializes in soul food like deep fried soy-glazed ribs that falls off the bone, macaroni and cheese, and an excellent burger. The double smashburger here comes with enough cheese and caramelized onion jam to cover the burger like it’s being tucked in at night. If any of that sounds enticing to you (it should), you can stop by Oola’s Kitchen for outdoor dining Tuesday through Friday, or check out their website to place a takeout or delivery order.
