About Merkato

Tucked away on the New Caledonion Road near Kings Cross, London, Merkato has won critical acclaim for its authentic Ethiopian cuisine and warm, cosy atmosphere. Small, but perfectly formed, the dining room is a jostling space filled with live musicians and an animated local crowd, and the helpful staff are always on hand to help you navigate the extensive menu. Popular dishes include the wot – a thick prawn or chicken stew served over traditional injera bread; tibs – which is grilled meat; and the kitfo – a distinctive dish made with raw ground beef marinated in chilli powder. Vegetarians can choose from diverse selection of dishes, and the cheap prices and overall jovial atmosphere are guaranteed to keep you coming back for more.
