On a quest for the best Tamales in the 5 boroughs.

There is some GREAT (and not so great) Mexican food in the city. I've had some OK and some really NOT OK tamales in Manhattan. I need your recommendations for your favorite, most tasty (which means not dry!!) tamales in the 5 boroughs. Because it's one of the best dishes ever created. And my mouth is watering just writing this email.

I'll throw in a Part B for extra credit--grilled corn mexican style...

  1. In Williamsburg on Grand Street there is an El Salvadoran restaurant called Bahia that makes delicious tamales, with home made crema. www.bahia-restaurant.com

    They also have grilled corn.
