Best place to buy tamales in Austin
- Carter B Dec 4, 2001 05:33 PM
I'm looking to buy a couple dozen tamales for the holidays, and I knew that members of this board should have an opinion on where I should go. Some of the people I'll be serving are true gringos and so I at least need one mild tamale choice. I'll also need to buy them ahead of time and freeze them so if that matters in what I choose, let me know.
Thanks in advance,
Haven't bought Xmas tamales here, but have seen a few offerings recent and in the past.
Manos de Christos(?) usually takes tamale orders as a fundraiser. Check the Chronicle tomorrow, it may have info.
Elsi's on Burnet is taking ordesr for banana-leaf wrapped tamales. Saw that the last time I was there. Pork, chicken or poblano.
I'm sure a fair number of other Mexican restaurants are taking orders.
Greg, you know of any?
Personally, I wish I knew somebody who was doing a tamalada. It'd be fun to attend and learn.
