Sage Fitness Group How this Foodie Stays Fit!!!!

An Oasis in Pasadena

The name Oasis Café might prompt most people to keep on walking by, but truth be told this is a farm to table neighborhood gem mistakenly named like an airport restaurant in the Bahamas.

The food is “contemporary American” and very well priced, made even more so with a travelzoo voucher 🙂

Here is a look at my 4 course meal at the Oasis.

GreensHeart of Romaine, Parmesan Croutons, Figs and Anchovies

ImageI’m always a fan of the anchovy but have never seen it paired with a fig. Very nice improvement on what is basically a Caesar salad.

AppetizersSquash Blossoms


A new edition to the mention, but a little too fried for my taste.

I also would have loved to try the: Pork Belly, Molasses, Mustard, Rainbow Radish

EntréeHanger Steak Confit Potato, Broccoli Rabe, Horseradish Crème Fraiche


A simple dish but cooked and salted exactly to my liking!

Mary’s Farm Duck Breast Roasted Root vegetable, Fig and Balsamic Glaze


A recommended entrée for being more tender than most, but if you can only choose one I would go with the hanger steak.

DessertCrème caramel served in a mason jar


OMG To die!! Might even be better than the budino at Mozza

Note to all diners-this restaurant is BYOB sans corkage fee for now, but they seem to have a bar just waiting for bottles in the back. Be sure to go prepared or you might have to rely on a good Samaritan to share their bottle of wine with you!

PS-I was that good Samaritan 🙂
