At Oasis Restaurant’s sunlit, yellow-hued café, the aroma of simmering lamb and sizzling falafel drifts through the dining room and breaches the borders of the adjacent market and halal butcher shop. Chefs procure fresh cuts of the 100% halal meat from next door to prepare from-scratch Lebanese, Egyptian, and Moroccan delicacies for individual orders or the bountiful weekend buffet. Though Middle Eastern classics such as grape leaves and hummus abound, chefs also pay homage to less prevalent delicacies, such as molokhia, a thick broth made from mallow leaves simmered in garlic. Once diners have finished chewing in unison, they can peruse the adjacent grocery store for imported groceries and fresh goat and lamb.
