Respond to Review of Ethos
by Liam Wilson
Review: Following some friends back to one of their staple spots in Bangkok, right off Koahsan road, to Ethos. The layout was laid-back and comfortable, the menu was full of local favorites as well as some more typical (and welcome after weeks in SE Asia) western vegetarian options like veggie burgers and tempeh sandwiches done right. The real clincher was the Kombucha. I hadn't had a Kombucha in weeks, and the fact that their stuff was brewed in house, and flavored with some really dramatic stuff, it was impossible to pass up. I'm not sure what about the order caught the attention of the owner, Phil, but nevertheless he came over to chat with our table, and soon we were discussing all things Kombucha, as well as a lot of other things on the menu, his origins in Melbourne and the vegetarian community there and eventually, about an hour-long discourse over dessert that we started by asking his opinion of the Red Shirts as an ex-pat vs. a Thai native...Etc. Etc. - the service and sense of community remind me why I eat as consciously as possible. Great establishment all around. The menu, location, staff, even the wifi was blazing fast! Highly recommended.
