A meal comprised of comfort-inducing fare is best consumed in a restaurant, far from sight of any begrudging bunny slippers and jealous ex-La-Z-Boys. Cuddle up to cuisine with today's Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of comfort fare at Mom's Restaurant in Trenton.
Owner Gus Dimopoulos and his amiable staff have whipped up scratch-made bites of home cooking every day at Mom's Restaurant for more than two decades. Early risers and insomnia-plagued owls can restock energy reserves with a menu of sun-up starters such as the hearty country-fried steak and eggs ($5.95), and the waffle crowned with fresh blueberries ($4.50).
Revolving around staples of homestyle fare, lunch and dinner eats employ a cast of breaded, meaty, fried, and gravy-laden characters, including the french dip au jus with bubbling swiss ($6.25), baked meatloaf atop a mashed-potato mattress ($6.95), saucy barbecue spare ribs ($8.95), and the house-specialty spinach and cheese pie ($6.95). Underwater options round out Mom's supper repertoire with home-breaded fried perch ($9.95) and frog legs ($8.95) to satisfy the most fastidious fish aficionados. Top off any main course with homemade rice pudding ($1.95) or apple pie à la mode ($3.95), ending meals with a tongue hug of coziness strong enough to elicit a truce between battling armies of taste buds.
The inner warmth instilled by soul food only amplifies when served amid Mom's Restaurant's inviting décor. Intimate wood booths and light-letting windows work to highlight a mural of a pastoral mountainside village, a reminder of simpler times, and a map home for migrating flocks of babushkas.
