Best tamales in Orange County?

I've made very good tamales every year since 1986, but conditions are such that I can't do it this year. Who makes the best tamales in OC? I prefer pork, but am open to chicken or something different. Thanks in advance for your help!

  1. Can't say they are the best, but Northgate Market does nice ones for Christmas, so does Las Golondrinas.

    There is also Reyna Market in Santa Ana and the Taco Mesa/Taco Rosa versions in the Irvine/Newport area.
