Respond to Review of Ethos Vegan Kitchen
by woofboy111

Review: I am not Vegan or vegetarian, but I enjoy eating vegan/vegetarian food on occasion. When I read about Ethos in the paper, I decided to give it a try. I ordered the Udon Asian Odyssey, which was supposed to be Udon noodles with assorted vegetables. Udon noodles are thick, round noodles that look somewhat like fuzzy worms when cooked. What was served were wide, flat noodles that seemed more along the lines of chow fun. I wouldn't have had a problem with the chow fun noodles if I was told that is what I was ordering, but I was expecting some udon. I'm guessing either Ethos was out of the udon and made a substitution without informing the customer, or they are assuming that the average vegan doesn't know much about Japanese noodles. I really don't like it when I order one thing, and get something else. Someone else that I dined here with also had something similar happen in their wrap. I also found the noodles to be way too salty. I love salty foods, but the amount of salt in here was over the top. Besides from the wrong type of noodles, the pasta seemed like it would have been really good if it wasn't for the salt. Instead, I had to eat some bread and drink lots of water to counter out the overpowering salty taste. I hope I went to Ethos on a bad night. The restaurant seemed to have potential. If they actually cooked what was described on their menu and didn't dump a whole box of salt into their food, it probably would be pretty good. As far as the menu goes, it was much better than some of the other Orlando Vegan restaurants, so it was kind of disappointing to have problems with the food. I also think the restaurant would be much improved as well if they got rid of the counter service at dinner and had actual servers. I think I'll eventually return to Ethos to give them another try, but after my first experience, it's not a place I have cravings for. Pictures of my Udon (without udon noodles) Odyssey can be seen here:

actually there are several types of udon noodle, one of which is the flat type that they serve.
