Cheap Israeli eats in Silver Lake; Echo Park kink; Eagle Rock pasta


Mh Zh has captured the Israeli café vibe, according to the LA Weekly. Initially, the long wait, “rickety tables and chairs,” and “painfully Silver Lake-ian crowd” struck a nerve with restaurant reviewer Besha Rodell. But after paying for dishes, such as the potatoes with charred lemon and a lamb “ragooooo” at a bargain price, it was well worth the wait. Mh Zh is located in the 3500 block of Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake.

  1. I wish The Stockroom/Syren Retail Boutique, aka sex shop, had stayed in Silver Lake, or would simply operate online.

    • Agreed! Seems especially inappropriate to have a store like this less than a block away from an elementary school. I’m surprised there hasn’t been more neighborhood backlash.
