Strolling around downtown Sacramento before a movie at the Crest Theatre, I discovered Mother.  It’s a vegetarian soul food restaurant. 

In a nutshell, Mother serves a muther of a meal.  

The Chicken Fried Mushroom Po Boy is incredible, although the bun is a little voluminous for me — I wanted more mushrooms.  You will not believe that a cow didn’t give the ultimate sacrifice to put that Carrot Nut Burger on your plate.  The collard greens were good, but a little on the vinegar-y side and a little tough — overall, they made me miss Grandma Coleman’s. 

But man, oh MAN those sprouts!
