Mole poblano is one of Mexico's national dishes. It's a sauce that contains about 20 ingredients, including chili peppers and chocolate. The serving will include either chicken or potatoes, and red rice.

Modern mole is a mixture of ingredients from North America, Europe and Africa, making it the first international dish created in the Americas. Its base, however, is indigenous. Nahuatl speakers had a preparation they called molli, meaning "sauce".

Spiciness: 3 or 4 in a 1 to 10 scale. For very sensitive people it may be slightly hot, but still enjoyable. For all others it can be even a little bit sweet for its chocolate contents.

Traditional dish (with chicken): 18 CHF
Traditional dish with 2 pieces of chicken: 21 CHF
Vegetarian dish (with potatoes): 16 CHF
