Although team Mo-Chica/Picca/Paiche had intended on using the original Mo-Chica space within Mercado La Paloma as a concept incubator, they ended up handing over the area to Azla, a family-run vegan Ethiopian restaurant, presently soft open. See the menu here and note that Azla is plating up traditional Ethiopian dishes, sometimes with a Cali twist, using seasonal, organic, and local ingredients when possible. For example, Azla's gomen is made with kale instead of collards. So far Yelpers are satiated. [EaterWire]
