thanks in advance.

  1. In L.A., it is the Merkato on Fairfax Ave, WeHo.
    Great place, good prices, good food served.
    Buy authentic berbere, injera, bulk red lentils, shiro and
    all the stuff you want for a fine Ethiopian feast!

    Merkato Ethiopian Restaurant & Market
    1036 S Fairfax Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90019
    (323) 935-1775

    Sorry, I just saw that this query is from LV...but when you come to LA, that is the place. Its almost as hard to get there
    from where I live in LA!

    1. I haven't been to Meskerem in a long time. I think it was LV's first Ethiopian restaurant, located at 252 Convention Center Dr. I hope it's still open. It's primarily a restaurant, but there is a market area that would have most of what you need. If not, I'd check out International Marketplace at 5000 S. Decatur, which is chock full of specialties from all over the world. Worth a trip just to browse around.
