At La Cocina de Mama, the culinary team sticks mainly to Mexican staples?think carne asada tacos drizzled in tomatillo sauce or two juicy pork chops with beans, rice, and sweet plantains. Occasionally, though, they whip up a dish in the quirky style that the (possibly mythical) namesake matriarch likes best. Take Pollo de Mama, for instance, a chicken breast char-broiled in secret sauce, crowned in grilled veggies and cheese dip.?
Really, though, the eatery holds appeal for all types of moms. Moms who left the kids at home with a sitter might enjoy drinks such as pisco sours, martinis, or a frothy vanilla milkshake. Meanwhile, moms who bring in their youngsters might appreciate the [kids' menu](http://lacocinalouisville.com/kids-menu/(http://lacocinalouisville.com/kids-menu/), which features chicken tenders and grilled cheese.
