    Que Chida Mexican Restaurant

    I just discovered a new, little Mexican restaurant near the Town In Town Hotel. It's located in the Tree Square strip mall near the Bodindecha School. An unlikely location for good Mexican food but this place is terrific. The owner is Thai and his wife is Mexican, they specialize in Sonoran style food. I had the cheese enchilada and taco combo and it was really delicious. A cut above everything I have tried before in Bangkok.

    Mole? You mean:



    I must say that wouldn't entice me.

    Or even worse:

    Mole is sauce in Spanish, hence guacamole.

    From wiki, and now I am hungry.

    "Molé" redirects here. For the French statesman, see Louis-Mathieu Molé.

    Chicken in a red mole sauce


    Mole (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈmole]) (Mexican Spanish, from Nahuatl mōlli, "sauce") is the generic name for a number of sauces used in Mexican cuisine, as well as for dishes based on these sauces. Outside of Mexico, it often refers to a specific sauce which is known in Spanish by the more specific name mole poblano. In contemporary Mexico, the term is used for a number of sauces, some quite dissimilar to one another, including black, red, yellow, colorado, green, almendrado, and pipián. The sauce is most popular in the central and southern regions of the country with those from Puebla and Oaxaca the best known, but 60% of the mole eaten in the country comes from San Pedro Atocpan near Mexico City. The popularity of the sauce, especially at major celebrations, is such that 99% of all Mexicans have tried at least one version of it.[1]

    The best mole I have ever had was at a Mexican restaurant in San Francisco called 'The Line Up' across from the jail on Bryant. A real dive but damn good beaner food.

    Are you sure that isn't a mole? Looks dodgy to me.

    It is a Molay "sic", not a mole, cheers Harry.

    I knew that joint. Did you know Cafe Central at the very bottom of the mission almost under the old bayshore freeway. Old fat momma sitting there making the best hand made corn tortillas in the world. Menudo or Huevos Rancheros after a hard night on the sauce.

    Believe it was the second. But if you were from SF there was always the "fear factor" going into Oakland.

    Thanks, I'll try it, after living in Los Angeles that Sunshine Mexican Restaurant on Sukhumvit just didn't measure up.

    Chicken en mole...one of my favorite dishes. I had a girlfriend years ago that was Mexican and she used to make it from scratch for me. Many people don't realize it's made with unsweetened chocolate. You would never think chocolate chicken would taste so good.
