Please taste buds and full stomach.
I have never eaten Ethiopian food before, mostly because I am vegan and most dishes at Ethiopian restaurants include animal products. Thus I couldn't pass up trying Rahel's out when in LA. I went with my girlfriend and tried out a platter with tastes of a lot they had to offer and was pleasantly surprised that i liked almost everything on it. I recommend this restaurant to anyone passing through or living in LA...vegan or not.
Fragrant spices waft from this vegan institution where upside down hanging umbrellas and right-side-up dining ethics converge.. In Short Taking vegetarian cuisine one step further, this cozy yet bustling umbrella-bedecked dining nook is the only 100% vegan restaurant in Little Ethiopia. Owner and restaurant namesake Rahel proudly walks around to greet local lunchers and out-of-town trekkers who order vegan versions of classic Ethiopian wots (stews) and garlicky greens spread out on spongey injera (sourdough flat bread).
