We have been trying to get ourselves to The Red Iguana
in SLC for about 2 years now.
We'e read great reviews online and been intrigued by the mole (pronounced: mole-eh)
It is a chocolate based Mexican sauce.
So we reconnected with an old friend at the
Red Iguana 2
It's in Rose Park = good Mexican food!
Scott says he'd be proud to take someone from SoCal to this place.
When we arrived, he promptly found the manager and requested a sampler plate of the various moles so that he could order the appropriate dish.
She was so helpful and brought us this amazing dish.
I think Scott's favorite was the poblana.
I ordered the special which was a mango mole!
(I didn't love the traditional moles when we had it in LA.)
It's nice when the "specials" truly are special.

We had a weekend of goooood eats!
And of course goooooooooood friends!
