Corn husks in Manhattan

bgrey May 7, 2007 01:41 PM

Hi folks. I'm making 50 or so tamales this evening and am having trouble finding husks in Manhattan. Kalustyan's had only a handful, but I am using their delicious house brand of masa harina. Can anyone recommend a place to get a LOT of corn husks in the city?

    I thought I'd answer my own question, in case anyone else wants to make tamales - the teeny tiny Zaragoza Mexican grocery has plenty of them on the corner of Avenue A and 13th street. They also have dirt cheap and very tasty homemade Mexican food and are really friendly folks.
