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.

    They also have grilled corn.
