Respond to Review of Mother's Market and Kitchen - Huntington Beach
by Sonja and Dirk
Review: We stopped by this Mother's location to have lunch with friends and to pick up a few items. The store itself is rather small, but it seemed to have all the necessary vegan items. It was also nice not to view and smell a butcher area like in Whole Foods. As for the restaurant, their menu is mainly vegetarian, not vegan. The vegan items are marked and others can be made vegan. I ordered the soy chicken tacquitos with rice and beans and while the tacquitos were good, the rice and beans were pretty bland. Dirk got pancakes and they checked with him to make sure he got the vegan ones. One of our friends ordered the club sandwich which looked quite tasty, so I wish I'd gotten it. Another get the teriyaki stir fry which looked pretty basic and the last one just got the soup and salad option for a lighter meal. She ordered tahini dressing with it and she said it was nothing like tahini. The highlight was definitely the pudding pie shake that Dirk ordered. They substituted Newman-Os for the Golden Grahams when we asked for vegan and I'm sure it was better than way anyways! Thick and rich! Overall, it was a filling meal, but nothing special and as noted, the cafe was mainly vegetarian, not vegan, but they definitely knew the differences to accomodate us.
