Delivery Week is coming to a close tomorrow, but like you all, I wish it could go on forever. Alas, this afternoon I placed what might be my final prix-fixe order for awhile. My choice? Ethos. One of a pair of 5-star rated Greek restaurants that everyone raves about, I figured it would be a great meal AND great research for future meals. I’m a big fan of eggplant, so I chose the Melitzanosalata (a roasted baby eggplant dip) to start, went with the classic Kotopoulo Giouvetsi (boneless chicken breast with orzo, tomato sauce, and feta cheese) as an entree, and topped it off with the Yiaourti (yogurt with honey and walnuts) for dessert. About 5 minutes after placing the order, I got a call from an unknown number. Hoping it wasn’t this guy, I picked up. Turns out that Ethos had run out of orzo and needed to know if rice would be ok instead or if I wanted to change my entree. Very thoughtful of them, and I said rice would be cool.
The food arrived on time and it was another simply enormous feast. On top of everything I ordered, I got two cut-up pitas, three other pieces of bread, and a second dessert (Galaktosuriko for those playing along at home)! I decided to eat the chicken and rice while dipping pita in the eggplant spread. The eggplant spread was a little like baba ghanoush, but less finely ground. Very tasty. As for the chicken, I’m not normally a fan of white meat because it’s often too dry and flavorless, but I was impressed with Ethos on this front as well. The tomato sauce, feta cheese, and of course chicken skin, managed to make each bite moist and action-packed. And the replacement rice? Totally yellow, in a good way.
The Whole Enchilada, er, Ethos-salata?When it came time for dessert, I was pretty stuffed and couldn’t believe that I had two options! Of course I chose to combine them, dipping the pastry into the yogurt and really enjoying them both, although I’d definitely say I liked the pastry more.
Getting a little artistic with the desserts and appetizerEthos offered a wonderful Delivery Week meal and deal, and I would love to order from them again in the future. All the dishes I had are recommended, but if you want to try something different, I would expect them to have you pretty well covered. Next week we’ll be back with regular SeamlessWeb orders, but we’d love to hear about your favorites from Delivery Week, so feel free to leave them in the comment section!
