This is officially my favorite under $10/person restaurant in all of Arizona.

In a week's time, I went 3 times, and regretted not coming back more.

First trip: I had the enmolades and buddy had the memolitas. The enmolades were basically enchiladas doused with their house-specialty mole rojo sauce. I'm not a mole expert, but this sauce was fantastic. Sweet, earthy and tangy, sort of like a orange-chocolate liqueur (even though there was no chocolate in the mole rojo).

Second trip: Tried the mole tamales this time. It was chicken tamale, and the masa was a bit too dense and chewy for me, and this would've been a bad thing if I was just to eat this alone, but it came with the other house-specialty mole sauce -- the mole negro, which is made with chocolate (so I am told). And paired together -- the dense masa and the lava-like sauce -- the dish was a work of pure magic.

Third trip: chicken with mole negro. A nice tender leg/thigh piece topped off again with that mole sauce and some Mexican rice. I have no idea how the chicken was or tasted because honestly, I could eat a leather shoe if it came with that mole ...

Go, please. They need to stay in business. Forever.
