Seeking Fuul / ful - Ethiopian / Eritrean breakfast on the west side / Santa Monica?

Anyone know where I can get a nice bowl of fuul (ful? spelling?) on the west side or near santa monica?

I used to live in DC and ate this stuff all the time.... now I miss it.

  1. I'd imagine one of the places in Little Ethiopia (Faifax/Olympic - ish) would be the ticket -- if you are into Ethiopian food it would be worth a trip to that hood to check it out. Actually, I would search Ethopian on this board and I am certain you find some faves in that area.
    Personally, I'm not a big fan of Ethiopian food but I think Diana had recommended a place that she thought was particularly good once upon a time...

    1. Merkato serves a respectable fuul that comes with jalapeƱos and onions. In fact, you could sneak it next to an enchilada and no one would know the difference.

          Industry Cafe on Washington at the extreme east end of Culver City (where I happened to enjoy live jazz with no cover last night; try it out) also serves fuul for breakfast.
