NEW – Local Mobile Mole to-go!

October 25th, 2010 by Altaire Townhomes

Known for their Mole,  Four Oaxacan moles to be exact (red, black, yellow, green) plus dishes from that region such as molotes and tlayudas are served by husband/wife team Ron and Zaida Kent. The Kent’s will now be known locally as Mole to-go!

The Oaxacan Kitchen in Palo Alto Goes Mobile! As reported by the Mercury News, “The Oaxacan Kitchen in Palo Alto is pulling up stakes and hitting the road. In a restaurant van, naturally. In two years, Ron and Zaida Kent have made their restaurant the Peninsula’s go-to spot for a rainbow of moles (negro, amarillo, verde and coloradito).“   — Full Article
Here is what some fans on Yelp have to say –

“I find that that the flavors are quite different than those of the mexican food that most are used to. In other words, this is not your usual tex-mex! Oaxaca is known for their moles and indeed, their moles here are delicious! They use fresh ingredients always and it shines in their food!” — Gladys B.

“I had never heard of “Oaxacan” food so I was a little skeptical at first.  Even moreso when I saw the menu was full of spicy foods (I’m a white chick!).  BUT, I scored with the special of the day being beef short rib.  It was so incredibly tender and juicy and flavorful, and OH SO YUMMY!  I’m officially sold on “grass fed beef” being superior.  The meat was fantastic.” – Lil E.

The good news for fans? The Kents will still be serving up specialties at the Palo Alto Farmers’ Market and offering cooking classes, as well as specialty catering for events!
