Del Taco Brings on the Mole

Just made a quick stop at Del Taco for lunch. Wasn't expecting to find anything new but noticed that they now have a Molé Chicken Soft Taco and a Molé Spicy Chicken Burrito. This is the first time to my knowledge that a fast food restaurant has utilized the authentic Mexican molé sauce. These items may only be in test restaurants right now so I can't guarantee that you will find them at any Del Taco you go to.


They also have a new Neapolitan ice cream shake and Vanilla Iced Coffee.

UPDATE: The mole items appear to now be at all Del Tacos.

Which Del Taco did you find that at? I'll need to check the one across the street from us at Grand and the 22.

Well, it was the one in Lake Forest (or Laguna Hills . . . it's right near the border) that's across the street from their corporate offices.

I went and tried these. They weren't very good. It was basically their chicken taco and chicken burrito with "mole'" sauce added. The mole' sauce didn't taste like much to me

ChristianZ said...

Yeah, there was no new item. The thing is, mole sauce is not generally hidden in a closed up tortilla but out in the open on a dish. Still the taco I had was fine.

I'm such a mole snob, I'll have to force myself to try one of these DT mole items. But I will do it.

When you've had the best.....

Just remember they're only operating on the fast food level and are not trying to trick people into thinking they're something they're not. Actually just had their mole burrito at lunch myself a couple hours ago. Had a good discussion with their PR woman.

Captain said...

Yeah, I know. I'm still an insufferable mole snob in the first degree.

I tried a taco yesterday. It was ok, wasn't that impressed with it. I also had an order of the deep fried jalapeƱos those were kind of nice, but didn't have enough bit to them.
