Miznon is an international Israeli street food chain that has made its mark in New York, Paris, Vienna, and Melbourne before arriving in Singapore. Helmed by two Masterchef Israel judges, Miznon boasts a menu with the judges’ creative takes on Israeli pita and street bites.

The Miznon Experience is unlike any other. Having visited multiple times, I was never bored with exploring their signature menu of various meats and spices served in piping hot pita bread. If it’s your first time visiting, I would recommend trying their Candy Brisket in a Pita and their Eggs No Steak in a Pita. The chefs are so generous with the portions, the smoked meats are so fragrant, and the sauces are just impeccable.
