Venue Info

A vegan beacon in the Little Ethiopia neighborhood off Fairfax Ave near Carthay Square (debatably the only one), Rahel serves authentic Ethiopian the way it should be done: on a large injiera sourdough pancake, to be eaten with your right hand. A lunchtime buffet allows you to try all of the vegetable dishes, from split lentil stew to mild chickpea stew, under green umbrellas hanging upside-down from the ceiling. Don't leave without a slice of vegan cheesecake and a cup of telba flax seed tea.
