TAMALES, NOT MEXICAN

b

I find Mexican tamales too heavy. I love the Salvadorean tamales at Gloria's Cafe in Culver City, but it's too far.

Do you know of a place that has Cuban and/or Central American tamales in L. A.? Hollywood, W. Hollywood, Mid-Wilshire?

Thank you.

      I have always loved the Chuchitos (Guatemalan Tamales) from Guatemalteca in LA. I took them to a tamale tasting with several Chowhounders several years ago and they came in very close to first (if not first). Also, don't miss the black beans. YUM!!
