Tamales

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.

      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.
