Little Ethiopia
- Located on Fairfax Ave between Olympic & Pico

Los Angeles is a unique city as it officially recognizes a city neighborhood as "Little Ethiopia". Located 5 minutes east of Beverly Hills and 10 minutes south of Hollywood hills, 15 minutes Universal Studios, 15 minutes to Downtown L.A., 20 minutes to Santa Monica, Venice Beach and LAX on Fairfax Avenue this newest LA Ethnic enclave was christened in 2001.

Los Angeles as it is the second largest populated city in America behind New York City; it is also home to the second largest group of Ethiopians living in America behind Washington, DC. The Ethiopian population in LA county is unofficially estimated at over 60,000.
