Mother Chu’s Vegetarian Kitchen

I've been working across the street from Mother Chu's Vegetarian Kitchen the last 9 months.

Catering for strict Buddhists means that there's no alcohol consumption on the premises. Sparkling juices are prepared in replacement of wine and beer. And tofu or soybean of all shapes and textures are served looking and sometimes even tasting like the meaty variation.
