Anyone have a recommendation for authentic Mexican tamales? Preferably in Manhattan. Thanks!

  1. I like the tamales at Pio Maya on 8th Street. They have chicken tamales with mole or salsa verde, or a veggie tamale (which I haven't tried).

      Veggie tamales? FINALLY. Those are so hard to find...

    2. Leon Mexican Bakery, on 9th Ave in the 40s (47th or so), has very good tamales.
