Rocio’s Mole de los Dioses

Sporting festive Mexican murals and a back room with a stage, this Sun Valley venue is clearly equipped for parties. But the main event is what’s on your plate. Start with eponymous Guacamole de los Dioses ($8.99), worthy "of the gods," packing varying heat from mild to sangre ardente or "hot-blooded" with habanero heat and passion fruit zing. Or order the house speciality—as the name suggests, the restaurant offers one of the most extensive lists in town offering nine different types—with a three, four or five-mole sampler, served alongside addictive cactus tortillas. Mix and match your mole of choice—we like the sweet house huitlacoche-based version ($12.95) or the 31-spiced Oaxaqueño ($12.95)—with proteins from veal to salmon or cheese-filled enchiladas that'll make you a believer.
