“One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.” Virginia Woolf.

October 1st is Vegetarian Day. A day “to promote joy, compassion and life-enhancing possibilities of vegetarianism”. In order to get ready for said celebration, I figured I should spend an evening dining in a meat-free restaurant. 
I’ll be honest, the idea of a vegetarian restaurant is one that leaves me hungry and dissatisfied….once the red mist of starvation sets in I don’t think a plate of lentils and rice will quench my desire to kill those within a 5 mile radius.

I decided to try out Ethos, a self-service, meat free restaurant in Oxford Circus. Ethos operate a Pay by Weight System for Lunch and Dinner, which gives you full control over how much you want to spend…and eat.

I was surprised at the amount of dishes to choose from, such as macaroni cheese and friend aubergine, quorn lasagne, Thai sweet corn fritters, chickpea and coconut curry, sweet potato salad, dips…

…and let’s not get started on the deserts, the raw salted caramel hearts are quite simply out of this world. 

I have to admit, I’ve fallen in love with Ethos. The staff are wonderfully friendly, the food is delicious, filling and varied, with gluten-free and vegan options avaliable too. You can head here for breakfast, lunch and/or dinner and, if that wasn’t enough, they even serve skinny prosecco…

If you’re looking for somewhere to take a date, friends or yourself, then I would recommended Ethos.

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” Albert Einstein.

Happy Vegetarian Day peeps!
