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