Looking for Black Mole in Oakland/Bay Area

mpdrip | Mar 10, 201502:40 PM

Was in Mexico City last fall and had the black mole at Fonda Mi Lupita (HOLY COW!!) This stuff was amazing. Sweet, smoky, spicy, deep, dark etc etc. Well I bought a good size bag of dried mole to bring home but alas it is almost gone. Ive tried contacting the tiny shop in Mexico City to try and get some shipped or see if the export anywhere in the US but no lucky so far. Soooo, now I'm hoping that something even remotely similar exists here in Oakland or maybe the Bay Area in general. I'm hoping there must be some place on E 14th in Oakland that is making their own Mexico City style mole. Anybody been down this road before?
