Telok Ayer Street is home to a smörgåsbord of cuisines, including Japanese, Korean, French…and with the opening of sister brands Miznon and North Miznon, Israeli. Helmed by Masterchef Israel judge, Chef Eyal Shani, this is the Miznon chain’s first outpost in Asia, and its eleventh worldwide.
The casual arm of sister brand, North Miznon is where you can enjoy delectable Israeli dishes at a fraction of restaurant prices. The eatery’s bustling vibes and efficient service make it an ideal weekday lunch spot.
The stuffed pitas, a fixture in Israeli street food, are Miznon Singapore’s specialty and crowd-pullers. These are divided into “land creatures” and “sea creatures”, with flavours that sound as intriguing as the ingredients used.
The ABU Kebab ($25+), with its medley of lamb and beef kebabs served with pickles and slathered with tahini, chili, and salsa, makes for a delicious introduction to Israeli street food. The meat is unapologetically gamey, and each bite yields robust flavours of the savoury and sour variety.
Another noteworthy item on the menu is the Fish and Chips Pita ($22+). This fairly uncommon flavour, with its distinctly quirky take on the English classic, has certainly raised a few eyebrows. The seared fresh barramundi is flaky and salty, and the fried potatoes add a comforting factor to the pita.
Groups can also indulge in “out of pita” dishes that are good for sharing, such as a hearty Run Over Potato ($13+) or refreshing Ratatouille Plate ($19+).
Price-wise, Miznon Singapore’s offerings are on the steep side. But it’s not so often you can get your hands on decent, authentic Israeli cuisine, so it’s worth a visit or two if you’re looking for a delicious alternative to the usual Japanese and Korean eateries that dot the Tanjong Pagar area!
