ethos eat drink

Spring was in fine form on a beautiful Saturday in Hobart. AJ and I were keen to get out of the house to have some lunch so headed into town to Ethos. 

 Tucked away in a little alley off Elizabeth St you enter into what is essentially an old Hobart home. 

It is tastefully decorated with a mix of exposed brick and rendered walls. Vintage bottle chandeliers, local artworks and heaps of natural light. 

Ethos offers a small but quality range of beers and wines. Including some speciality teas and their unique hot chocolate.

AJ ordered the hot chocolate after receiving some advice from a friend that it was 'amazing'. You are served a bottle of hot milk, a block of either dark, milk or white ganache which you unwrap, place in the mug and pour the milk over. The result is a rich and beautiful hot chocolate that AJ was willing to share with me - but only a little.

Hot Chocolate

Pickled Vegetables
 The menu here is a mixture of a la carte or fixed offerings. The menu includes tapas style dishes, slightly larger plates and plates to share. 

We opted for one of the fixed offerings; a croquette of the day - which was Brawn (offal), pickled vegetables and the daily lamb. 

Ash opted for some a la carte

choices; the fried chickpeas,

refried bean empanada, chorizo

with red wine potato.

 The favourite dish was probably the chorizo with red wine potatoes. The potatoes weren't anything special but the chorizo was unlike any other I have tried. Rich, moist, spicy and with a unique texture that just melted away with each mouthful.

 The chickpeas were also a surprising delight. They were crunchy yet light and dashed with a slight spice of chilli. 

A great tapas that could also double as a great beer snack.

We'll definitely be back to ethos to try some other treats!
