Miznon @ Stanley Street - Highly Acclaimed Casual Eatery By Chef Eyal Shani Unveiled Its First Outlet In Asia


I have nil knowledge about Israeli cuisine; hence I was really looking forward to the opening of Miznon at Stanley Street. The contemporary casual eatery by Chef Eyal Shani has an international footprint of 10 outlets across the cities of Vienna, Paris, New York, and Melbourne. Singapore is their first outlet in Asia.


Upon placing your order at the cashier, you can help yourself to the complimentary pita bread. It gives you a glimpse of the original taste of the soft and fluffy pita bread.

Intimate 4.2/5

Besides the variety of Pita on the menu, there are other non-pita items too that you can order to complement your meal. The Intimate ($24) is so hearty and comforting with melt-in-mouth beef short ribs, roots stew, tahini, onion, pickles and chilli. I would recommend saving some of the complimentary pita bread to wipe up any leftovers.

Batata 3.5/5

The Batata ($12) may not be as exciting as the other items on the menu, but the grilled sweet potato is really sweet. 

Hraime 4.5/5

Not to be missed is the Hraime ($26) that has a whole barramundi swimming in a spicy Moroccan stew, together with tahini, chilli and cilantro. I regret asking you to save some of the complimentary pita bread for the Intimate, you will need more of them to fully appreciate the stew.

Steak & Egg  4.5/5

There is a variety of Pita on the menu stuffed with different fillings. The texture of the pita bread is exactly much softer and fluffier than those that I have eaten so far. As I am sharing them with my friends, we get to try a couple of them. We started with the Steak & Egg ($21) which is stuffed with tender beef, fried egg, sour cream, tomato, onion and Japanese cucumber. A friend of mine shared with me that her husband refused to share with her after having a bite. That just shows how good it is.

Chicken Liver 4.5/5

One of my favourite pitas is the Chicken Liver ($18) which comes stuffed to the brim with seared chicken liver, tahini, spring onion, salsa and chilli. I know some diners may not enjoy the chicken innard, but the creaminess for the chicken liver is like foie gras to me. 

Abu Kebab 3.5/5

Something more Middle Eastern is the Abu Kebab ($24) with lamb and beef meatballs, tahini, chilli, salsa, pickles, onion and parsley. I find the meatballs slightly on the dry side, which is somewhat less appetising compared to the other pitas I tried.

ERotisserie 3.5/5

For a healthier choice, one may go for the ERotisserie ($18) that consists of pulled roasted chicken, chilli, spring onion and baba ganoush. 

Ratatouille 3.5/5

There is even a vegetarian version of the pita. The Ratatouille ($17) comprises of tahini, chilli and hard-boiled egg.

The pita bread by itself is already very substantial and filling. Unless you go down in a group, you may need to make a few trips to try the different pitas in the menu. By the way, Miznon does not take reservation for lunch, but for dinner, you can do so.

Note: This is an invited tasting.
