Mole Tater Tots @ Amor Y Tacos

The Mole Tater Tots at Amor Y Tacos may be one of the most crave-worthy things I've eaten in a while.
Mole sauce, queso fresco, onions, sour cream (and something else I'm forgetting) all ladled generously over a bed of crunchy, hot tater tots. It's smoky, a bit bitter in a good way, and with a good wallop of salty, sweet, and sour as you work-through each mouthful.
I'd imagine this is what mother's all over Oaxaca must've fed their children if they were able to buy bags of Ore-Ida.
In any event, good stuff. Actually, wonderful stuff. Just wonderful.
Oh, and their Doritos Chilaquiles aren't bad either, except it bordered on a bit too much like "college-frat boy drunk food". Not that that's a bad thing, per se, but sometimes you just want regular "college frat boy food".
Amor Y Tacos.
Had never heard of the place, but found it to be in Whittier.
I have not even been in the 562 area code in the past year.
Not sure whether that drive would be worth it for any type of food, without some other justification also involved.
But thanks for the info. Maybe one of these years...
Oh geez. I saw a write up about them a while back, thought they looked crave worthy - and know I know they are.
Darn you Ipsedixit! Another road trip to plan for.
How would you say they compare to the Ooey Goey fries at Chego (which I haven't had either. Just on my naughty wish list).
Ooey Gooey Fries
beer-battered, w/ sour cream sambal, monterey jack and cheddar cheese, cotija, chillies, cilantro and pickled garlic $6
Thanks for the reports!
And margaritas. Holy mole, margarita(s).
Because Cerritos, as it allows no "bar" CUPs, desperate for booze.
the agura fresca, made with hibiscus, was particularly tart (cleverly balanced with a sugar rim) and delicious.
I'm a big fan of this place. I love the mole tots, and love the pork belly dish and the duck tacos. Drinks are great, too.
