I have never, ever eaten mole sauce, and figure it's about time.

We have some great restaurant on the island, and was wondering who you think has the best mole, and what dish to order to try out this taste treat for the first time.

The best I've had was at the Mercado at one of the little places or at El Torito on Av. 65 (but they don't have it everyday)... Worst was at La Choza. I usually get chicken mole, sometimes it's served with whole pieces of chicken (i.e. drumsticks, breast, etc), and sometimes it's just chunks of chicken in the sauce. I love it, sweet, spicy, rich. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

I personally think it is tragic what they do to all those cute moles to make a little sauce out of them.

(Well, Jane, it just goes to show you, it's always something! If it's not one thing, it's another!)

Never mind...... :rolleyes:

El Moro has very good Mole sauce, I have had it on a few things there and they were all very good.

is there something that you could compare the taste too?

Mark, there is somewhat of a difference (I hear) between Mole, and Mole. One is smooth, the other is a little crunchy ;)

I can't think of anything it compare it to, but know that it's sorta like pozole - everyone has a family recipe, so there can be subtle differences. There are also regional differences in mole sauces. Casa Denis and Abuelo Geraldo also have good mole. Abuelo Geraldo's mole chicken enchiladas are excellent

pozole is a soup/stew made with pork, achiote and a whole lot of hominy. It bears no resemblance I've ever seen to mole.

Every cook has their own recipe but it always seems to be thick and black and usually has an element of chocolate in it. You don't eat it alone. It's a sauce and typicall has at least 15 ingredients

I can't speak from personal experience, since I'm not really a fan of mole, but when I ate with a group at Sabores last december, a number of the group had Chicken Mole and swore that it was among the very best mole they had tasted. I had the Chicken Enchiladas with salsa Verde, since I am a fan of Salsa Verde, and that Salsa Verde was among the very best I've ever had.

I need to clarify. Pozole and Mole are two very different things - it's the family recipe component I was trying to point out - pozole can vary from restaurant to restaurant, as can mole. Some are milder, some are hotter, some are sweeter, etc. etc.

I am a huge fan of mole sauce! The absolute best mole I've ever had is the chicken mole enchiladas at El Moro. I've never been able to finish all of them (4 I think), so I always have leftovers. Amazing meal!

Paula, so surprised at this thread...

Do you know how the moles are killed in order to extract the sauce?

:P :P :P :P :P :P :P

Mark C have you met the other Mark (mslf500).

Are you two Mole Men? I can see it now..."release the Moles"..."do not cage a Mole"..."I break for Moles".

Okay, now that its out of my system, I think I shall try some Mole at El Moro.

Needed the giggle this morning :D

LOL - I know you're probably offline and readying for Rina, but just think about it this way - maybe you could convince the mole to give up some of its sauce willingly by being polite...?

I hope the storm passes quickly. Praying for you residents.
