Holy Mole! Autentica Mexicana Comida Aqui! East LA Gourmet Mexican Cuisine BYOB

I've only been here once before yet this place deserves to be visited at least once a year so I'm way overdue. They still have 15 different moles. Mole is the generic name for a number of sauces originally used in Mexican cuisine, as well as for dishes based on these sauces. The variety of flavors, smells and ingredients are amazing!  It is impractical to try to taste all the sauces in one evening so the tasting of the moles at this restaurant will be broken up into two events. Many of the mole sauces are master chef level sauces and use dozens of ingredients in a single sauce. Many of the moles are almost never made at home or for a single meal.  Few if any restaurants offer as many variety of mole sauces as this restaurant. 

We will dine in one or maybe two tables of eight, family style and the bill will be shared equally excepting any drinks will be paid for separately.

Here's the dishes we will sample this evening, I will try to have the restaurant adjust the portions so everyone gets a decent taste of every dish so expect the cost to be higher than is listed below if they agree: 

Pato con Mole de Tamarindo ~ Duck breast topped with Tamarind Mole $21.-

Del Charco a su Mesa ~ Frog legs topped with Finas Hierbas Mole $18.-

Medallones D’ Filete, Tequila y Limón ~ Center cut, Tenderloins (Angus) topped with Mole D’ Tequila & Lime $20.-

Velo D’ Novia ~ Fresh halibut fish steak topped with White Mole $20.-

Mancha Manteles ~ Boneless pork tenderloin topped with Mole made with spices, guajillo, chile & cinnamon $13.-

Lomo D’ Cerdo en Dueto de, Pipiane ~ Center cut boneless pork loin topped with green and red pipian $12.-

Gambas al Café ~ Sauteed with shrimp topped with Coffee Mole $15.-

    Excellent variety of food (and people!), we got to try so many different moles., and all were delicious - the black mole and white mole were my favorites - and the pistachio flan - yum! Can't wait until next week, and also looking forwarding to going back for full plates of my favorites. Thanks Darrell, wonderful event. And the service was perfect.

    Great and fun event! Excellent food and stellar service! 10-11 courses (if you include the free chips/salsa). Alfonso took amazing care of us considering it was just him besides the cooks. They delivered the dishes precisely on schedule and we all had a great time!
