Happy Thanksgiving! Deliciously different.
Ethos is a self-service restaurant located in central London, moments from Oxford Circus. With the option of a glass of prosecco during their Thanksgiving get together last week (thanks to the wonderful JPR), our evening tea was filled with laughs and talks on what exactly it was that we were eating. They specialise in deliciously different, meat-free cuisine that tastes as good as it is for you, and known for their diverse gluten-free and all Vegan menu, where sandwiches, scones and a delicious selection of cakes and sweet treats will be waiting for you.
Mornings have never tasted so good with gorgeous breakfast dishes, artisan teas and a specialty rich robusta caffeine fix from new independent producer Black Sheep Coffee.
There is a choice to go for scrambled eggs made to order with a choice of three amazing toppings (sweet potato cracking with avocado; tomato, chilli, coriander, sour cream & avocado; or crumbled feta, coriander & pumpkin seeds) or three delicious dairy-free porridges (raspberry, maple & almond; banana, chocolate & walnut; or apricot, cranberry & coconut). The hot options are complemented by a range of ‘Grab and Go’ pots and the ever popular smashed avocado on toast, which sit alongside a range of juices and made to order smoothies. Yes. Avocado.
Plenty of choice here from two plate sizes and a help-yourself selection from the hot or cold pods. You can plunge yourself into the divine Japanese miso-roasted aubergine (nasu dengaku), regularly- changing vibrant salads and , showstopping signatures such as the restaurant’s Spring Green Scotch egg with spiced tomato ketchup.
Desserts are a highlight and include a large range of gluten free, sugar free and vegan desserts, such as the refined sugar free brownies and healthy power puff balls. For something more indulgent try the lemon and raspberry cheesecake or moreish pecan pie.
Cocktails / Wine / Juices
To unwind after all of that amazing food (which I have to admit, I do not find Vegan food extremely filling – but again maybe because it is so healthy and light that you can eat so much of it without feeling bloated or full), enjoy a range of cocktails or alternatively, sip on a tasty selection of vegetarian, vegan and organic wines from around the world, all served by the bottle, carafe and glass. Sophisticated and contemporary, championing the versatility of vegetables and meat-free cuisine, ETHOS is a restaurant for our times. Deliciously different in more ways than one, indulge in food as nature intended, morning, noon or night.
The scotch egg and the lovely gluten-free cupcakes being my absolute favourites out of the selection!
Being open seven days a week just on the edge of Eastcastle Street, Oxford Circus, they find no difficulty meeting the unique demands of Vegans, Vegetarians, Health-freaks and Health-geeks. You name it! They specialise in dishes from around the world, all bursting with flavour and colour. So welcome allergy sufferers and those with special dietary requirements because at Ethos you will be well catered for with their vast range of gluten free, dairy free and vegan options.
There is just too. much. choice.
Their interiors are award winning and showcase abundant displays of beautiful, carefully selected dishes from around the globe, and I especially love the warmth of the trees including the autumnal leaves display that creates a true thanksgiving aroma.
The interiors create this aura of the importance of family and a community-focused appeal. Their Pay by Weight System for Lunch and Dinner, gives you flexibility in your choice and price, and again allows for this communal process of understanding each food by its value and its weight.
In the evenings, they offer a fuller table service with a desert menu and drinks served to the table. There is a great attention to service here which I absolutely loved and during our Thanksgiving get together we were welcomed by the members of Ella Eyre, Lilah Parsons and many more amazing faces that also came to share the lovely gifts of Ethos
I was blessed to be able to enjoy a private dinner to really grasp the amazingness of Ethos by bringing a close friend Georgia who was Vegan, and it was amazing to see how she trully appreciated what they had to offer and it made me realise that there are not (if any) restaurants in london that are pretty much wholly vegan and gluten-free. Which is a shame when you think about the immense population in London and the proportion of Vegetarians and vegans amongst us. With the constant trends almost of healthy eating now all the glits and glam of plant-based diets and ‘humble’ lifestyle choices, Ethos really fits the bill. (Not that I think this new era is a trend, but when something seems to be followed a lot due to one person’s opinion you cannot help but to notice a pattern)
“Their dishes make healthy eating fun, evocative, attractive, delicious and simple.” – Et.
I would definitely recommend going there again, especially during the coming up into the festive season. It’s location is perfect for a quick lounge and bite, and a wander off into Winter Wonderland or the noise of Piccadilly which is just a 10 minute walk away, as well as all the amazing night venues such as Drama to visit after. Why not pop out into Sketch? Or simply go back home. Nonetheless, the most important thing now is that wherever you plan to go – let Ethos warm you up before doing so.
Sometimes it’s all about the simple moments ❤
