Mizlala Reworks Menu at Modern Mediterranean Restaurant in Sherman Oaks

Chef Danny Elmaleh and wife/partner Justine launched a new all-day menu at Mizlala, their modern Mediterranean restaurant in Sherman Oaks.

Locals who enjoy dinner at Mizlala will be thrilled to know the modern Mediterranean eatery is now open for lunch. Danny Elmaleh and wife Justine just launched a new all-day menu. Favorite dishes like hummus and kebabs are on the dayside menu but also come in “shared plates” and larger sizes. As always, nothing on the menu tops $18, and an automatic 14% tip is added to each bill.

Mizlala capitalizes on its creamy, standout hummus by debuting a new version. This one comes topped with sliced avocado, salty crumbled feta, a tangy dollop of Greek yogurt and the Middle Eastern spice za’atar. Still on the menu: hummus variations with blistered shishito peppers, fried artichokes and chimichurri, and a more basic “masabacha” style.

The couple has added an entire menu section of laffa wraps that star their supple, house-baked, Israeli-style flatbread. Laffa cradles key ingredients like falafel, chicken shawarma, grilled kefta (ground spiced lamb kebab) and spicy merguez sausage made using a treasured family recipe.

The new menu also debuts a lighter Little Gem lettuce salad with creamy dill dressing, feta, red chile oil and toasted panko.

On my last visit at dinner, I enjoyed the well-spiced lamb shawarma served on mini-laffa with lebne (tangy strained yogurt), spicy harissa and nutty tahina. Grilled branzino was fantastic, featuring a crisp-skinned Mediterranean sea bass fillet plated on a bed of cauliflower “cous cous” stained yellow with vadouvan (French curry), more lebne and tart currants.
