Anyone know of good tamale vendors (usually with a big pot of them in a shopping cart) in Central NJ, such as the New Brunswick-Princeton area? Or good stores with them?

This is a tiny grocery store. They have good tamales on weekends. Get there early. Tamales are chicken. Most have a banana leaf wrapper. They run out. I like the rojas and the mole. The verdes is too hot for me!
Even though I find this hard to believe, Olives, on Witherspoon St in Princeton, apparently (according to my mom who is, i must admit, quite the Tamale Hound). We were in there yesterday and she asked the owner when they're making them again and he said, this week! he said to check for the exact day on their website, olives.com, but that likely, they'd be there on Wed or Thurs, although one can place an order for a whole pan of them at any time. I'm definitely going to try one and will report back. Let me know if you get there and try one!
