Despite being the most unannounced restaurant in LA, with no sign, no website, and menus written on strips of brown paper, Mh Zh (pronounced “Mah Zeh”), on a Silver Lake corner of Sunset, is packed seven nights a week. The food is vegetable-heavy, Israeli-inspired, and designed to share. We’ve all had hummus and vegetables before, but chef Greg Shemtov’s version is different—the hummus tastes like a smooth tahini and garlic cream. Eaten with the vinegary pickled vegetables and a side of charred Bub and Grandma’s bread, it’s the perfect marriage. Most of the seating is curbside and it doesn’t take reservations, but, Mh Zh is arguably the best-priced, most satisfying meal to be had in this part of town.
