Tamales in Tacoma?

Is there anywhere around Tacoma that sells chowhound-worthy tamales? Some of the carnicerias on S 72nd and thereabouts look like the kind of place one *might* find a tamale cart on Sunday mornings, but I've never really looked into that possibility. I know Tacoma Boys sells tamales, but are they any good? I'm looking to pick some up for a brunch at home - not to go to a restaurant. And I'm willing to drive a little for good tamales.

  1. Paselkin, You noted you don't want to go to a restaurant, but check to see if Vuelve A La Vida at 5310 Pacific Ave will sell you tamales to go. There's are excellent (as is all the food there.)

      I do love Vuelve a la Vida, but was wondering more about other options.
