Blanca's Bakery 85B Broadway Somerville - Very Good Tamale

StriperGuy Nov 29, 2012 10:02 AM

On the way to my favorite salgadino place a bit further down Broadway yesterday I noticed this modest spot.

Central American is my guess.

I picked up a nice flat ricotta breakfast cake which was very good. They had many of the usual plainish South American baked goods, perfect for dunking in strong coffee, but I also picked up two excellent tamales to go. They came with a tiny side of nicely seasoned cole slaw.

The tamales were delicious. The place is so modest and unassuming. I think they also serve some lunches. The place deserves a thorough hounding taste-through, I'd hit it again in a sec.

Just the kind of place I love.
