Ill be there all week with the exeption of Monday. The MOle is amazingy good if I do say so myself, but if youve ever made mole, you know that nothing that is that labor intensive can turn out bad. 4.5 hours of toasting, and grinding and stirring, and toastin and grinding, and stirring... but oohhhh so worth it.

Yeah that I do, chicken mole though, haven't had Mole con Pato. I used to use the store bought sauce, but then my mother in law taught me how to make it, never turned back after that.

We do need to get together, like I was telling cooking is one of my favorite things to do. Maybe we can plan a trail run/cook off!!! Bobby Flay vs the home town kid type of thing.

I bet my grilled steaks are better than yours!!! :lol:

Funny, I've lived here a long time and have driven and rode my bike past there countless times; never knew about Persimmon Grill. One doesn't need to be a member to eat there? Sounds really good!

That has been the problem that I have run into this first year that I have been there. People who live in the area assume its strictly private. But, the restaurant is open to the public. 7 days a week from 11-9 evento go orders. Our complete menu is on line. (plug plug)

Man, I got excited thinking you were in loveland or fort collins. Being from San Diego, I'm HURTING for good / real mexican food. I've tried a bunch of places now, and no one can do it like the places in San Diego unfortunately. I guess being a border city has SOME benefits. Well if I'm in Boulder area sometime, I'll try and plan to stop in.

Inca is great its on college south of horse tooth somewhere not exactly sure but googlel it, then...MY favorite is Guadalajara in windsor. Food. AMAZING. Service is even better, seriosly it is just as you would expect from a mexican family owned place, very friendly every single time.

I'll try Guadalajara for sure. I love food from the Guadalajaran region. Thanks for the tip. I've seen Inca many times, but frankly never heard anything about it, so I figured it wasn't anything special. I just hate that people like the Rio in old town. Yes the margaritas have a ton of alcohol in them, but the food is horrendous and the margaritas don't "taste" good at all.

Inca has amazing Nopalitos. And camarones mojo de ajo. Guadalajara is seriosly hands down one of the best restaurants, everything considered(service, atmosphere, food) that I have ever been to, well, except for my restaurant. I am running some of the most amazing fish this week. Its called Kampacha., and is the best fish I have ever had. Picture sushi grade tuna, but fattier. Its got more omega 3 than salmon. It is smooth and buttery and seriously the best fish I have ever eaten. Cant wait for it to get in tomorrow so I can clean it and eat some sashimi...
