Feeding one's soul can be a rejuvenating experience, but feeding one's mind can result in a pudgy brain that only retains facts after dipping them in ranch dressing. Keep your brain svelte and your soul satisfied with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of home-style Southern cuisine at M&M Soul Food. Today's deal is valid at both the Los Angeles and the Inglewood locations.
M&M Soul Food's menu swells with a spate of Southern comfort cuisine served in hearty portions. Breakfast bangs onto tables from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. with a troop of egg compatriots, such as three chicken wings and beef hotlinks ($6) or a savory ham steak ($6.75), doing their own military cadence in a three-part harmony. The lunch and dinner menu launches like a gravy-fueled rocket at 11 a.m. and highlights house specialties such as fried pork chops ($12.99), short ribs ($14.99), and crisp fried catfish ($15.99), all of which slide into stomachs accompanied by house-made cornbread muffins and a choice of spirit-soothing sides that include mac 'n' cheese, black-eyed peas, and greens. Night owls and disoriented early birds can grab dinner grub until 10 p.m. Sunday–Thursday and until 11 p.m. on the weekends.
M&M Soul Food
A little corner of Mississippi stands in southeast Inglewood. An unassuming space on Crenshaw hosts M&M Soul Food, which recreates a huge menu of southern favorites from 8 a.m. through dinnertime seven days a week. Chefs load up plates with meatloaf, smothered pork chops, barbecue ribs, and fried seafood, among other soul-food staples. Then, of course, there are the sides—three of them per dinner plate, not counting the plump corn muffins. The menu also incorporates many dishes that can be hard to find outside a southern grandma's kitchen, such as liver and onions, chitterlings, ox tail, turkey wings, and oyster loaf. Cakes, cobblers, banana pudding, and potato pie obliterate the danger that someone might accidentally walk out with a little belly space left empty. In addition to standard combinations of grits, pancakes, and omelettes, breakfast hours hold out less-common dishes such as eggs with catfish or smoked beef links.
