the Oasis Market

The Oasis Market opened last fall at the corner of Telegraph and 30th to immediate success.  It is a middle eastern market and restaurant with prices that can't be beat.  It draws middle easterners from all around the East Bay.  The Yelp and Chowhound crowd loves this place.  Local newspaper articles credit it with improving the character and safety of the neighborhood.  The Oakland Islamic Center is around the corner.  My first visit last week yielded freshly baked pita bread, a delicious tabouli salad, and a variety of olives at a real good price.  Next week it will be lunch and stuffed grape leaves to go.  Yum.


  1. «Louis» has missed this. He's got to go check the pita out!

  2. The Lamb chops are a must - cooked to perfection with a side salad, basmati rice and bread baked in their tandoor oven. This dish never fails to please a hungry crowd - more than enough to share with a friend - just add a side of falafels and hummus.
