Oasis Food Cafe is a Middle Eastern restaurant in Brea. The chefs aren’t afraid to offer dishes that can appeal only to expats, from manakish (Levantine pizzas) to cucumber yogurt to dollops of labne and balela, a proto-hummus. The entrées are more mainstream -- gyro this, fattoush that, customizable à la Chipotle -- and there’s even a smoothie bar for all the teens strolling through after Brea Junior High lets out for the day. They’re fine, but then you discover the mulberry juice: so dense it’s almost savory, but ending with a sugary flourish.
