Mole, a quintessential element of Mexican cuisine, is a rich and complex sauce that typically combines a variety of ingredients, such as spices, nuts, fruits, and chocolate. The history of mole is deeply rooted in Mexican culture and dates back centuries. Legend has it that mole was created by nuns in Puebla, Mexico, as a tribute to a visiting archbishop, using a blend of indigenous and Spanish flavors. Today, mole is celebrated as a symbol of Mexican culinary heritage and is enjoyed in numerous variations across the country.
Molé Comida at The Shops on El Paseo brings the authentic flavors of Mexico to Palm Desert, California.
We sampled a variety of enchiladas and salads and chatted with the friendly waitress who told us a sister restaurant is about to open up the street called Shorebird under the same management.
If it’s any bit as good as Mole we can’t wait to try it!
