I'd give Merkato three and a half stars if I could. We ate there tonight and got the lentil filled sambusas and the vegetarian combination platter which includes all the vegan dishes (six of them, I believe). The injera was too thin in our opinion, and the cabbage tasted like it had been overcooked. Everything else was decent, with our favorite being the yellow split peas and are second favorite the shiro. Those two were solid and so were the sambusas. All in all not that impressive a place, and we prefer Rahel's. On the upside, Merakto was VERY affordable, the combination platters were $6.99, an unbeatable price for a filling dinner. We also liked the atmosphere which was very interesting and different.
