It’s easy for Ethiopian to be vegan-friendly. In Vegas, there are an abundance of Ethiopian spots to soak up all the flavors. Merkato Ethiopian Restaurant happens to be one of our favorites.
Housed in a quiet strip mall about 10 minutes from The Strip, Merkato isn’t pretentious. At all. In fact, it’s the opposite and about as un-Vegas as you can get.
Las Vegas Vegan-Friendly Restaurant: Merkato Ethiopian Restaurant
You don’t come here for posh or design, you come for the food. And, it’s good.
Vegan options at Merkato Ethiopian Restaurant
The restaurant offers quite a few vegan selections, as well as a veggie combo platter that delivers six or so vegan selections that are enough to split between two people. If you’re not feeling a platter (but, seriously, order the platter), there’s also lentil sambusas to devour or the veggie dishes a la carte.
It’s not expensive, service is quick and the food is delicious.
