    Finding tamales is pretty easy in this city. The best ones are made in my kitchen, however. :-)

      I don't eat tamales often, but I did have some at the Rick Bayless fast food restaurant in Macy's downtown and they were delicious!!! Have tried tamales in the past and haven't liked them but these were great!
