Madre, a vegan Mexican restaurant in the Jordan District, proves that it can also be done completely without animal products. Here you can order guacamole prepared right at your table and fajitas with vegetarian ribs that will please even the biggest carnivores. The big 8 that Madre previously received from our reviewer is well deserved.
