LA Weekly's Description

Amid a string of quaint restaurants in Little Ethiopia, Merkato restaurant and market caters to carnivores and vegetarians alike. Here, the owners pride themselves on keeping up with Ethiopian tradition of serving plenty of vegetables and starches, as well as cooked, stewed, ground, minced and raw cubes of beef, most-likely marinated in a fiery red pepper sauce.

Tips from foursquare

  • Beth F. on 03/03/12

    The Vegetarian Combo is the best deal in town.

  • Andrew S. on 12/23/11

    Order the beef with jalapeƱos ( no oil) or the whole fish. Veggie sampler is also a must.

  • Jane S. on 04/09/13

    For some reason, this one seems to be the most popular place in Little Ethiopia! But Tuesday nites = quiet!

  • Sauce L. on 12/27/09

    Don't miss the market and the Meta beer

  • Zahra N. on 08/31/13

    I've been coming to Merkato going on 10 years. Yedoro wot and veggie combo are a must!
