Located just off the main Little Ethiopia strip, Awash is a small eatery with an unassuming exterior. Step inside, though, and you'll be rewarded with some of the best Ethiopian food in L.A. Awash specializes in tibbs, or chunks of marinated meat (primarily beef) that are accented by a hefty amount of spices and Ethiopian butter. In addition to chicken and fish, there are also a few vegetarian combos that include lentils, split peas, greens and a salad, along with the requisite injera. Service can be slow at times—so arriving when you're borderline hangry might not be a good idea—but the waitstaff is friendly and accommodating.
