Traditional starters include porridge with spice and butter, as well as sambusas made with either lamb, chicken or vegetables. Signature specials feature minced beef with spiced butter, cheese and spinach, and a dried beef stew mixed with injera. Fresh seafood options include lightly spiced and fired fish fillet, and there is great vegetarian selection, including split chickpea stew, and fried green beans with carrots.

A range of wines are served at Merkato King's Cross, including traditional honey wine, and there is also a choice of spirits. Traditional coffee makes for a flavoursome end to the meal.

    Sehr authentisches kleines Restaurant! Besteck gibt es nur auf Nachfrage, man isst landestypisch mit den Fingern. Die abschließende Kaffee-Zeremonie war richtig klasse. Wir wollten einfach mal was anderes ausprobieren und waren absolut begeistert. Auch der Preis ist unschlagbar, Deluxe-Platte für 2 Personen für 25£!
