The Oasis is an aptly named break from the everyday. Newly situated in the Platzl in Kimberley, patrons only have to find the walking mall’s famous green door to find this innovative take-out restaurant.

“We thought that Kimberley, especially the Platzl, needed a late-night and lunch take-out spot,” said co-owner Chris Ballauf. “Just because it’s after midnight shouldn’t mean you can’t get great food in this town.”

And the fare puts a twist on regular take-out food in more ways than one. You can try a famous Twisted Tater - a spiral baked potato covered in everything you could want on a spud - to an assortment of wraps, pitas, pizzas and a breakfast menu for those coming to the Oasis for their morning/afternoon opening.

A particular favourite of this writer is the Pork Kabob Pita, made with marinated oven-roasted pork, mushrooms, red onions and cherry tomatoes and topped with tzatziki sauce. This really hits the spot at 1 a.m.

Of course, if you have the late night munchies at home, feel free to give Oasis a call, after 10:30 p.m. at 778-481-4481 for delivery. You can also visit the Facebook page by searching for “Oasis late night take out.”
