Forget combing the specialty supermarkets for 28 ingredients and building a fire pit on your patio -- if you're craving mole, you can find the real thing right in your backyard without lifting a finger. Pay $15 for $30 worth of food and drink at Real Tenochtitlán Restaurant, a brightly appointed Mexican eatery in Logan Square that specializes in five versions of this traditional, complex sauce. Build the anticipation when you begin with guacamole made tableside and served with fresh tortilla chips. For the main event, savor pork tenderloin with mole verde (a green sauce made with tomatillos, cilantro, epazote, and pumpkin seeds); rack of lamb in mole negro that blends more than 28 elements for a seriously intense flavor; or duck draped in rojo coloradito, a mole made with ancho chilies and chocolate. Holy mole, indeed.
