    Hello, good evening!
    Hola, buenas noches!

    I am trying to write a message to my friend (on facebook). This evening, I ate "pollo con mole" at a local restaurant, and wanted to tell my friend that the "pollo con mole" he made in January was better. How do I say "yours"..referring to the pollo con mole dish he made this past January? This is what I have:

    "Hoy, yo he comido pollo con mole... pero, esta comida no tan buena como suyo."

    Thank you in advance.

    Since you are comparing here two different "makings" of the same dish and "pollo con mole", unlike "comida", is masculine, I'd go with:

    "...pero no estaba tan bueno como el tuyo/suyo".

    Thank you all for the response.

    It seems like I was in fact referring to the meal "la comida" when making a comparison. In that case, would it be more correct to say

    "..pero no estaba tan buena como la tuya"?

    in regards to syntax?

    In english, I would have written.. "Today, I had eaten chicken with mole.. but that meal was not as good as yours" (your meal).
