Where to find nacatamales in the Bay Area?

Ben and I are still on the lookout for nacatamales. They are very moist and flavorful Nicaraguan tamales filled w/ potatoes, olives and other ingredients. Ben tried them in Honduras when he was a little kid and still remembers them. I've tried them at La Palma Mexicatessen, 2884 24th St (@ Florida) SF. 415-647-1500 but they don't have them often.
Salvadorean tamales are close but still not the same says Ben.
Any place else has them?
You can find them at the produce stand on Mission between 24th and 25th. It's the one next to chinese bakery (the same side of the street as the Mission Cultural Center). You can also find them at the Nicaragua Restaurant on 25th and Mission.
your not going to finf Nicaraguence nacatamales in a mexican restarant because their not mexican food their Nicraguence food so go to a Nicaraguence restarant
I saw a mention in the Guardian of Las Isletas for nacatamales. Anyone try it yet?
