So far on my endless search, I've been surprised by the mole at a little place called La Cocina on 30th and Lex.

    which mole are you looking for?

    mole is just Aztec for "sauce"

    there are hundreds if not thousands of sauces in Mexican food.

    which one do you want?

            Try De Mole in Sunnyside. It has to be good since it's the name of the restaurant.

                Tacos El Compita on 34th Avenue b. 32nd & 33rd Streets in Astoria. Amazing Mole Poblano Enchiladas. You just need to be a little patient with them if you're ordering on the phone (it's essentially a take out/delivery spot, although there are a few tables in there), they're a little light on the Ingles sometimes.
