Good tamale place.

  • 2

I've bought tamales a couple of times from a lady who used to come by my old apartment complex, and once by a guy who was selling them at the Scoot.

The former were awesome. The latter were a pretty greasy, gnarly experience. Not the best.

Where's a good tamale place? I'm of course into recommendations of good mexican restaurants that have tamales on the menu, but I'd rather find a little tamale take out joint.

  1. I have always enjoyed the tamales from Oaxacan Tamaleo. Its been a while since I have had them, because they moved from their old location on Anderson lane, but I do believe they still sell their tamales to go at the Farmers Market on saturdays. Can anyone whos been to the farmar's market recently confirm that?

      They were at Sunset Valley last week. I too can vouch for them being pretty good. I think they steam them in banana leaves instead of the usual corn husks with a good selection of fillings.
