Ethos Organic Cafe And Restaurant Nairobi Review
Ethos is an organic and plant based cafe/restaurant in Nairobi. I’ve been meaning to go there since I first heard about it. Because as you know, organic and plant based is where it’s at for me. I didn’t have very high hopes to be honest. Kenya has some pretty decent vegan food options but they’re not exactly the best I’ve had. But still, I was excited enough. We don’t have a lot of vegan places and I think this is one of the only two vegan cafes/restaurants in Kenya. So, here is my Ethos organic cafe and restaurant Nairobi review:
It was such a cute little place. Very cosy and they even had some chairs set up for those dining alone. I absolutely loved it. However, they have since moved to another location which is a food court. Do contact them on their page to find out the details of their new location.
The Brownie 8/10
We started out with dessert because life is short. And also, our pizza was still baking and we were hungry. Plus, one of my cousins had to go back to work so we didn’t have too much time. Back to the brownie, it was so delicious. I haven’t had a vegan dessert in so long since we don’t have many vegan options in Kenya when it comes to desserts. It was dark chocolate which is my favourite type. I’ll definitely be going back for more desserts.
Pizza Margherita 9/10
The pizza is what I was most excited about. I hadn’t had vegan pizza from outside in so long since most Kenyan restaurants don’t have vegan pizza options. Ethos makes everything for the pizza from scratch. From the base to the cheese, it’s all made by them with organic products. If you’d like to watch the whole process feel free to check it out on my video review. It’s located below at the end of the post.
Anyway, the pizza came out looking amazing but I was still a bit skeptical as vegan cheese can go south pretty fast. However, the cheese was delicious and so was the pizza. We all loved it. It was definitely the highlight of the meal. The cheese actually tasted cheesy if that makes sense.
Shawarma Plant Based 9.5/10
This was another thing I was super excited about. I have never had vegan shawarma before but I really have been wanting to try it. So, I had decided to order it as soon as I saw it on the menu. And I’m so glad I did. It was so amazing and I have no idea how they made the vegan shawarma “meat” or the sauces but they were incredible. Seriously, if you get one thing from Ethos let it be this.
It came with a side of fries and the fries were amazing too. Those fries may be the best fries I’ve ever had and that means something because I’ve had a lot of fries in my life. I don’t know what potatoes they used or how they made them but they were perfect. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. And seasoned to perfection.
Kama Kuku Burger 9/10
I didn’t have the burger because I was already full and we wanted to go somewhere else after this so I wanted to leave some room lol. But my cousin wanted to try the burger and he said it was amazing. He really liked it. By the way, “kama kuku” means like “like chicken” in Swahili.
Masala Fries 9/10
Again, these were delicious because their fries were just out of this world. They were flavourful and perfect. Another dish I would really recommend if you ever find yourself at Ethos.
Ethos was a big W! I didn’t have too many hopes when I went in but wow was everything amazing. And you could taste that it was fresh and organic. I don’t know about you guys but I can always tell when something is organic and when it’s not. You could tell they use good quality ingredients. If you’re looking for affordable, good quality food in Nairobi, Ethos is the place to go.
