LA transplant looking for the Best Mexican Food /Markets in the Area (ESPECIALLY MOLE!!!)

nephyrwynn | Jan 13, 201112:20 AM

I know this is an overwrought question, but I seriously miss LA Mexican food (I am Mexican By the way). I know that it would be a hard stretch to find an LA duplicate... but I'm looking for a place that is as authentic as possible especially in the following categories

1. Mole
2. A very good house salsa (especially salsa verde)
3. Good carne asada/fajitas/
4. Possibly Mariscos or at least shrimp tacos?

So Far I've tried :
-Jose's in Cambridge ( not too impressed though its better than other stuff I've tried)
-Anna's Taqueria... okay
-Boca Grande ( I think its pretty decent)
-Border Cafe (Tex Mex.. but the fajitas are my fave)

Please give me pointers... detailed suggestions.. hell... I'll even take your best suggestions on where to find mexican food ingredients so I can cook it my self.

Bonus points if you can tell me where I can actually buy any of the following items (preferably not online):
-Cast Iron Comal
-Clay olla
-Basically any authentic mexican cooking utensil..
