The Ethical Kitchen is like no other restaurant around because of its dietary standards. They use healthy, grass fed or pasture raised or free range meats. No grain fed animals here! The ingredients are mostly organic (its the desserts that may have non-organic ingredients in them) and as local as possible. Some ingredients are even picked right outside in their own garden! The most unique aspect though is the affiliation with the Weston A Price Foundation, which recognizes the importance of animal foods, and especially animal fats, in the diet.
Meals range from soups and stews, to burgers and sandwiches, salads and even crepes, pancakes or waffles. Daily specials are listed on a board above the till, with a seasonal menu as well (be sure to ask if whether or not the something you'd like is available that day).
They make a special fermented drink called kombucha in house in a range of flavours. They even sell the cultures for home fermentation, just ask!
You can also buy Pasture to Plate products, including meats, stock, and lard. They also sell house made sauces, sauerkrauts and desserts.
The Ethical Kitchen is quite small, it has a nice friendly and homey atmosphere and the food is great. It's a local, small business with a commendable raison d'être that I fully support. If you're into the organic, healthy and sustainable way of life you'll love this little restaurant. But if you're not, you'll at least love the food.
