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, and 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, they don’t take reservations, and it’s BYOB, but Mh Zh is arguably the best-priced, most satisfying meal to be had in this part of town.
