OUR FOOD

PLANT-BASED | WHOLEFOOD INGREDIENTS | LOW WASTE | SEASONALLY FOCUSED

WELCOME. MOTHER IS A PLANT-BASED NATURAL FOOD & WINE RESTAURANT. FORMERLY ‘THE RAW KITCHEN’, OUR JOURNEY STARTED IN 2009 WITH A PRETTY SIMPLE MISSION: TO INSPIRE & SUPPORT HEALTHY, SUSTAINABLE LIVING. 

 

OUR RESTAURANT CELEBRATES DELICIOUS, NOURISHING, PLANT-BASED CUISINE. IT IS FOOD TO BE ENJOYED, FUEL OUR BODIES, FEED THE SOUL & PAY RESPECT TO MOTHER EARTH.

 

WE USE REAL, NATURAL, NUTRIENT-RICH INGREDIENTS TO CREATE FLAVOUR-PACKED FOOD. WE’RE INTERESTED IN CELEBRATING INCREDIBLE, PROGRESSIVE CUISINE. EVERYTHING WE SERVE IS FREE FROM REFINED, PROCESSED OR ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS AND ALMOST ALL MADE COMPLETELY FROM SCRATCH ON SITE, INCLUDING OUR DAIRY-FREE CHEESES, BUTTER, YOGHURTS, FERMENTS, PICKLES AND SAUCES.

WE CHOOSE TO ONLY USE HEALTHY OILS, ALTERNATIVE UNREFINED SWEETENERS AND OUR OWN PLANT-BASED HOUSEMADE ‘DAIRY’.
