Beginning today and running through to December 31st Taleo Mexican Grill at the Park Place center in Irvine (in the spot occupied by the former Left at Albuquerque) will be offering turkey tamales and sweet potato flan as special seasonal items.

Taleo Mexican Grill - Turkey Tamales

The tamales follow a Thanksgiving theme, stuffed with perfectly cooked, moist turkey resting in yellow mole sauce and topped with cranberry sauce with a serving of sauteed spinach on the side.

Taleo Mexican Grill - Sweet Potato Flan

The sweet potato flan is similar to their normal flan (which itself is very good) with just the right hint of sweet potato, making a nice Mexican substitute for pumpkin pie. This flan is so rich most people will need a second or third person to help them finish it.

Of other interest on the Taleo front is the fact that a second Orange County location is set to open sometime in the middle of next year. As usual, find all the updates here at your friendly neighborhood Orange County Mexican restaurant blog.

I've definitely got to try this place out. I've been interested in it ever since Julian Hsu put up his review of it.

Yes, you should try them sometime. I've seen the name Julian Hsu before but I can't quite place where. Can you tell me where his review is?

Whoops. Posted this on the wrong comments page. Please delete the other one.

Oh, okay. I do recall having seen that review before.

I'm not so sure about turkey tamale, honestly, but it is true that I love anything in Taleo's yellow mole. Definitely have to get over there soon for their holiday menu - thanks for the reminder!

The turkey tamales are actually pretty good. Maybe you could ask for one a la carte to share to determine if you would want the whole dish.
