We stopped by Mother’s in Westchase for lunch today.  They have an outside patio and the weather was perfect for it today.  The menu had some interesting choices and we started off with the smokey Chipotle Gouda mac & cheese bites.

These were tasty.  Crispy on the outside, cheesy & gooey on the inside and the cheese sauce on the side had lots of flavor.  A little smokey with crispy Pancetta.  $8 for 4 of them seemed a little high to me, especially since I could have eaten a dozen and not thought twice about it.  For his entree, Loren got their grilled chicken sandwich with fries.

He was a happy camper.  It had arugula, tomato, pepper jack cheese, bacon and an avocado ranch sauce.  The chicken was very tender and tasty.  I went for their Citrus Duck Flatbread.

It’s a rare occurrence when I like every single ingredient in a dish.  This flatbread was perfect for me.  The flatbread itself was thin & crispy with duck confit, goat cheese, Mandarin oranges, Asian pears, and a Ponzu reduction.  It was delicious.  All of the flavors blended together just right.   Total bill with a drink was $36.  The food and service were both great and we’ll definitely be back to try some other things on the menu.
