And the best tamal in Baltimore is...?
Tamal, tamale, however it's supposed to be spelled, where's the best ones? I'm think the Mexican/TexMex/New Mexican variety, but feel free to chime in with Salvadoran recs, too.
While not nearly a connoisseur of the tamale, I must say that the one I shared with Mr Baltoellen on Saturday at Tortilleria Sinaloa was excellent. The masa wrapping was light, the filling flavorful, and the entire thing was lacking in grease. (Which I know appeals to some folks, but grease running down my arm isn't really my thing.)
When they have them, the tamales at Fiesta Mexicana in Rosedale are magnificent. I shall have to try Michelle's though.
