The shops and restaurants are all authentic and full of friendly people. I have been to three of the eateries in Little Ethiopia and love them all. The culture... More

This is where she'd be, in the quaint little ethnic neighborhood of Little Ethiopia near central town Los Angeles. It's not very big but it's packed with the fun things you're looking to sample - shops, boutiques, souvenirs and restaurants. We enjoy walking, browsing and eating.

The BEST Ethiopian food in Little Ethiopia in Los Angeles, you have to try it. The veggie combo and the meat combos are great! They have the best and most tender lamb. Their food is VERY authentic Ethiopian food! The service is GREAT and the people are fantastic!

LE, on a 1-black stretch of Fairfax Blvd, is quite a few hidden treasures. If you eat meat, then most restaurants will work for you, such as Mesob, Little Ethiopia, Addis Abeba. But if you are a vegetarian/vegan, then Rahel's would be your first choice, then Nyala. Both have a great lunch buffet at a reasonable price. Now, for the... More
