Merkato Ethiopian Restaurant & Market
As its name suggests, Merkato is a market filled with everything from pantry goods to CDs and T-shirts. But behind all the merchandise is a tiny kitchen in the back that’s making excellent Ethiopian food. We usually stick to their vegetarian section of their menu, the spicy and earthy lentils are a standout, but you can’t really go wrong with anything on the menu. Call (323) 935-1775 to order, and know that they also sell Ethiopian wine to go.
