“How can you go wrong when you mix a light, succulent lamb sambusa followed by sweet sweet baklava at Oasis Bakery”
Lebanese food is one of my favourite cuisines. So when I stumbled across Oasis Bakery (click here) on instagram the day after I left Melbourne, I was kicking myself I hadn’t found it before. So the next time I travelled to Melbourne it was definitely at the top of my hit list of places to eat the next time I made the trip south of the border.
First and foremost, Oasis Bakery is a haven for fresh pastries and is combined with a café and a large grocery store. I was like a little kid in a candy store, roaming the isles, drooling over the house made baklava (yes nutella too). It’s equal parts bakery, grocery store as well as a café. The café, is a more like a cafeteria, pay at the counter with buzzer style.
Oasis is about a 20 minute drive from the CBD, but this place is well worth the drive.
What we ate:
LAMB & PINENUT SAMBUSA* – triangle pastry filled with lamb & pinenuts
TETA’S LAMB & EGGS – seared lamb with scrambled eggs and maras chilli on sourdough with green pea-shoot salad
SPRING EGGS – with heirloom tomatoes, haloumi and sujuck
CARNIVAL HOTCAKES – fluffy hotcakes with caramel sauce, popcorn and marshmellow
* this was ALL time
I Absolutely loved every bite of what we ate at Oasis Bakery. A must visit for Melbourne and definitely worth the drive from the city!
