A new sun is shining on the canal Saint-Martin. After lighting up the Marais, Eyal Shani’s heliotropic cuisine is back for an encore at Miznon Canal, with all the vital energy of a souk: string lights, a big blackboard menu on the wall, green ceramics and colorful tables. Topped with a handful of grilled cauliflower heads, bundles of herbs and pyramids of stacked vegetables, the cinderblock bar gives out onto a tsunami of aficionados. The night we went, there were wild tempos coming from the sound system and bandana-wearing chefs cooking up some insane pita sandwiches with influences from the Jewish diaspora: the crowd-favorite falafel with chickpeas, cilantro, grilled tomatoes and pickles (€8.50); cyclonic spicy hake with onions, tomato sauce and aioli (€12); along with a fluffy pita cone stuffed with some incredible ratatouille (€8.50). These seriously artful offerings are even better with a Goldstar beer (€4.50 for a half-pint). And to finish off this roasting rapture, try the sensational roasted sweet potatoes (€5), or the Hiroshima-esque cauliflower (€6.50). Before ending on a merciless note, with a chocolate, hazelnut and banana flambé pita (€3.50). // M.J.-D.
