Israeli celebrity chef Eyal Shani is soon to open the latest branch of his Tel Aviv falafel joint, Miznon, in Melbourne, Australia. Miznon has already seen huge success in its Paris and Vienna locations and also will open in Manhattan’s Chelsea Market this fall.
Miznon (Hebrew for “buffet” or “canteen”) doesn’t serve only the signature spicy deep-fried chickpea balls in pita pocket bread, but also a variety of vegetables, salads, meats and breads prepared in-house. Part of the appeal is an open kitchen so patrons can watch the behind-the-scenes magic.
Shani chose his next location based on evidence that the good folks of Melbourne, Australia, are going wild for Israeli-style street food. According to TimeOut Melbourne, two other falafel places have opened in the city over the past year.
The Melbourne branch of Miznon is set to launch this August.
