A new spot for Mediterranean street food is coming to Toronto. Miznon, which first opened in Tel Aviv back in 2011 and has since expanded around the world, has set its sights on Canada.

The restaurant, which is set to open on Bay Street in the Yorkville area, will be Miznon’s first in the country, joining its existing locations in Paris, Vienna, Melbourne, Singapore, and NYC.

Using fresh and seasonally inspired ingredients, Miznon aims to capture the flavours of each city and combine them all into one pita.

“We take the energy, the groove, the desires, the limitations, the beauty and the food and express it all in one pita,” Miznon says.

With Toronto being the multicultural hub that it is, we can only imagine what kinds of creations they’ll come up with.

Miznon’s NYC menu might give us an idea of what to expect at the Toronto locations. The wild mushroom pita is described as a “whole forest burned on hot steel,” which sounds both intriguing and delicious.

Other menu features include ratatouille, melting chickpea, and falafel burger in a pita, as well as grass-fed cow and lamb options like roast beef, lamb kebab, and rotisserie broken chicken.

You can also order the dishes on a plate instead of in a pita, and pair it with something sweet and beer or wine.

Miznon was founded by Eyal Shani, who is considered to be one of the “leading figures in the Israeli culinary scene,” according to the website. Shani even appeared on Israel’s Master Chef, so it’s safe to say that he knows his stuff.

Based on everything we know about Miznon so far, we’re pretty stoked to give it a try.
