Bangkok Restaurant Review: Ethos Vegetarian and Vegan Restaurant

Posted by on Oct 1, 2013 in Travel | 0 comments

On my last trip to Bangkok I visited Ethos a couple of times for breakfast and enjoyed yummy gluten-free and vegan pancakes, granola with fruit, and of course their delicious fruit smoothies.  This time, I made sure to get back there for dinner. Twice.

Our first visit came at the end of our fifth straight day meetings. My colleagues and I were so tired at that point that even our dinner conversation was pretty sparse! Luckily the food was just what we needed: very nourishing, satisfying and tasty. 

A few of the highlights: 

Som Tam: Just as green papaya salad should be: fresh, crisp, sweet, sour, salty and spicy. Sap sap!

Pad See Ew: Simple, down-to-earth and wholesome.  The thick noodles with lots of fresh vegetables and tofu were exactly what I wanted that evening and I relished every bite.

Chinese Kale Stir-fry: Over-the-top good! This just-wilted Chinese kale with tofu in a simple soy and garlic sauce was so tasty and healthful we ordered it on both of our visits.

Eggplant and Mushroom Stir-fry: With beautiful thai eggplant, earthy mushrooms, basil and red chilies, this stir-fry was delicious.

We visited again on our last night in Bangkok. This time I decided to try the fried red curry with tempeh. It was great! I particularly loved the green peppercorns that dotted the stir-fry. Eating it was an absolute pleasure.

The really nice thing about Ethos is that the kitchen is open until 11pm, so it is a reliable place to go for a late dinner.  The ambience is great. It’s incredibly relaxed and I love sitting on cushions on the floor at its low tables! And as an added bonus: free wifi!

If you’re in Bangkok, Ethos is definitely worth making the effort to get to. 

Location: Behind the Burger King on Tanao Road, at the intersection with Khao San Road
