I just heard of a restaraunt in NY that serves green mole, that is seasoned with pumpkin seeds (called pipian) Has anyone had it?

I have had it before, its good but I do not care for it. It tastes a little bitter to me, maybe because of the tomatillos. Pipian is also the name of a type of mole made with pumpkin seeds but without the chocolate so it is not as sweet, its also pretty good.

P.S. I hope you all get the irony: salsa verde followed by mole followed by green mole (or some such order). Maybe it's the Mexican Flag! (PS/PS: I just read a crockpot recipe called Mecian Flag: combo of red & green chiles and tortillas. Nothing new in ingredients, just in name)
(So how about a US Flag Casserole: red, white & blue cabbage??)(or Borderland Stew, add red & grenn moles)
