As we all know today is the day we celebrate our mothers. But because my mother lives in Los Angeles, I had to settle with a simple phone call. I was invited to celebrate with my boyfriend’s grandmother, aunt and cousin. It was an honor to be invited, and a very lovely meal at Hs. Lordship in Berkeley. Though it was delicious, it wasn’t soul food.
Over many conversations at the table, the topic of soul food came up. And guess what!? A restaurant as re-opened in Oakland, The Southern Café on MacArthur (in the Diamond District). And boy, oh boy, have I heard good things. I think Chris (my boyfriend) and I will try it next Sunday. I thought I would still give y’all an update for Soul Food Sundays just in case y’all want to try something new.
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY Y’ALL
