(smashed avocado with feta, Oasis Bakery’s Archie’s Blend #2, charred corn, quinoa, salmon, poached eggs topped with duqqa and zaatar dressing)
I can appreciate this place trying to deviate from the conventional smashed avo dish but the Archie’s Blend just didn’t do it for me and neither did the smashed avocado, which was intensely sour.
(two buttermilk hotcakes, salted caramel sauce, honey popcorn, toasted marshmallow and fairy floss)
These were some pretty good hotcakes! And although I have a big sweet tooth, I recommend sharing this dish otherwise it can be a bit overwhelming.
Roast Pumpkin Parcel
(roast pumpkin, caramelised onions, basil, pine nuts, spinach, halloumi)
Somewhat bland and ordinary.
These had great crunch and were nicely salted.
Triple Cheese Pie
(halloumi, feta, shanklish and a red pepper pesto)
Perfect for cheese lovers like myself.
Big Chicken Cheeser
(a quarter pound of chicken, halloumi cheese, chips, BBQ sauce)
This huge wrap was very filling and contained lots of delicious tender chicken.
Ayran Yogurt Drink
A little too tart for me but I liked how it cut through the heaviness of the food we had.
This popular bakery/cafe/grocery store is always buzzing with people and it’s easy to understand why. There is a huge assortment of delicious food available, the service is hassle free (you order at the counter and collect your food once your buzzer rings), and the atmosphere very laid-back. A unique place that is worth visiting if you are after Middle Eastern inspired food and/or groceries.
