When in Santa Fe (NM), you must go the farmer's market on Saturday morning. Find a small produce stand with a sign that says "Produce from Chimayo, NM". Adelia Vigil makes the best tamale I have ever eaten - she has them at the stand in a thermos box that says "Warn Tamales". Go early. I haven't treied the vegetable, but the Pork was FANTASTIC. I had forgotten what a real tamale was like. Any suggestions for tamales in NY? Don't say Gabriela's. Thanks.
Try these places, all of them are simple places, nary a
Festival Mexicano on Rivington St.
Lupe's on Sixth Avenue*.
Sucelt Coffee Shop on 14th Street.
*has vegetable tamales
There is an excellent tamale at Rinconcito Peruano on
Ninth Ave. near 53rd St. in Manhattan. It is Peruvian.
You can probably only get it on Saturday.
