  • The Vegetarian Combo is the best deal in town.
  • For some reason, this one seems to be the most popular place in Little Ethiopia! But Tuesday nites = quiet!
  • I've been coming to Merkato going on 10 years. Yedoro wot and veggie combo are a must!
  • The sambusa is the best part of the meal
  • Been coming here for 10 years now. Get the doro wot (chicken in tomato sauce) and veggie platter.
  • Service gets worse as the night wears on.
  • Derek Tibbs, the fish, vegetarian plate and Ethiopian Coffee and friends. A perfect night
  • Ethiopian coffee is the best! They roast it in front of you!! Try it!
  • Be prepared to eat with your hands.
  • Great vegan and meat options
  • Service is terrible; waiter is not seen for a long time. This Ethiopian restaurant is also really good, their food is excellent, and their plates are quite good and tasty, and decent size.
  • My first Ethiopian food experience and I love it. Nice people, good service and delicious food
  • Honey wine. And veggie platter + meat combo. Wash your hands first
  • Yodoro Wot, injera, veggie combo
  • Squishy bread and the vegetarian plate is just a delicious mess
  • Yedoro Wot ( ) . Veggi plate . . - . .
  • Great Vegan food and crazy cheap. And the stout is amazing.
  • The whole fish with the veggies and injera is the best here!
  • Order the Goat Tibs
  • Order the beef with jalapeos ( no oil) or the whole fish. Veggie sampler is also a must.
