Momma’s Kitchen 2853 E. 25th Street

This place used to be Taste Budds Soul Food. When it closed it didn’t take long before someone stepped in to claim the place. I was really fond of Taste Budds food so I was half way expecting something similar. Honestly I was a bit disappointed with the menu. They offer a few breakfast items but the everyday lunch was only 4 combos for $10. A Herby Burger, Fried chicken, quesadilla and nachos. All came with fried potatoes or home fries and a drink. Their rib tips and fried fish were only available on certain days as specials. Evidently roasted chicken is not an option.

Per the menu you can get any part of the chicken for your meal. In reality they only offer wings. Pat had wanted a fried breast but ordered a Herby Burger instead.

The potato options on the menu become french fries for service. Lots of french fries. We each got a basket like this.

I decided on their wing combo.

I got 6 wings placed on top of 2 pieces of white bread. The wings were nicely done. Hot and crisp with good seasoning. I probably should have ordered their chicken and waffle special. A buttery waffle sounds better than 2 slices of plain white bread. I enjoyed my lunch and I think it was reasonably priced. I really should go back to try their tips. I believe they serve them on Thursday or Friday.

  1. Plain white bread? So odd. That burger looks like it could have used two more buns for the meat.

    • In my experience that bread thing is common around here at “country” joints that are used to packing their food into go boxes. They want to add bread for the sandwich makers and to save room the bread goes on the bottom. I have seen folks make a sandwich out of a bone in pork chop. Bone in wings? Not so much. If they were hot wings that would be good. Sauce soaked bread is always nice. That poor burger wasn’t so much cooked as it was tortured. My pictures were pretty bad but I don’t think any thing could improve the looks of that plate.

  2. I do not find either of the sammiches appealing, but I am in the mood for fries. (Which are on their way here…) Sorry you miss TasteBudds 😦
