Mission Taco Joint has launched a new delivery-only concept, Holy Mole. The ghost kitchen features mole dishes — mole negro with beef short rib, mole poblano with roasted chicken and plantain mole with roasted salmon — as well as tuna ceviche, chips and salsa and guacamole.
The menu draws inspiration from Milagro Modern Mexican, the Webster Groves restaurant that Mission’s sibling owners Adam and Jason Tilford operated from 2010 until early 2018.
Holy Mole is available 2-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday. Order online for delivery within a 5-mile radius of Mission’s commissary kitchen in Kirkwood, or email Holymole@milagromodernmexican.com to inquire about delivery outside the radius.
In late November, Mission announced Off the Wall, a takeout-only concept at its location at 105 East Jefferson Avenue in Kirkwood featuring burgers, corn dogs and more boardwalk-inspired fare.
Adam Tilford tells Off the Menu that Off the Wall has gone on hiatus now that Mission’s Kirkwood location has reopened for dine-in service.
