This little enclave is brimming with four- and five-star restaurants serving authentic cuisine. Whether you’re looking for tasty injera or wat, Toyota of Downtown LA has some restaurants that’ll serve some authentic injera or wat–or whatever you prefer. Check out some of the best restaurants in Little Ethiopia!

Messob Ethiopian Restaurant

Messob Ethiopian Restaurant is located on Fairfax Avenue in Little Ethiopia. Since 1985, they’ve been a go-to for authentic Ethiopian food that’s fresh and flavorful. Their menu features all the staples in Ethiopian cuisine, including injera, doro wot, kitfo, and dulet, as well as 100% vegan options.

Meals By Genet

Tucked away on Fairfax is Meals By Genet—a cozy bistro known for their deliciously spicy dishes. L.A. Weekly calls the doro watt at Meals By Genet “a serious doro wot, vibrating with what must be ginger and black pepper and bishop’s weed and clove.” You can also get tasty entrees like tofu tibs sautéed in onions and green chiles and Mamoshye’s Special Kitfo—a steak tartare with Ethiopian butter.
