Don't let the "neutron-bombed strip mall" vibe put you off. Hey, the countless cabbies who frequent Merkato gotta be on to something. Entrees tend to run under $10, but you can forge a feast from appetizers, whether it's the humongous selata (tomato salad, $3.50) or yemisir sambusa (lentil-stuffed pastry, $1). Brekkie? Try the chechebsa (scrambled bread, $5), or kinche (cracked wheat with butter, $3.50).
