Moon Author's Review
Mother Earth (8 a.m.–4 p.m. Mon.–Sat., US$4.50–5.50) is an excellent veggie and fish joint owned by Georgia Adams serving pepper pot, fish, red pea, and gungo pea soups and entrees like tofu creole, Chinese veggie steak, veggie mince balls, two-bean stew, ackee and saltfish, and tofu or fish chop suey. Meals are accompanied by roti or rice and peas, pumpkin rice, and calalloo rice. Fresh natural juices (US$2–2.25) include beet root, cane, calalloo, June plum, orange, and papaya. Mother Earth serves dishes exemplary of Jamaica's colorful vegetarian, or ital, culinary repertoire, in a down-to-earth, no-frills setting.
