Cinco de Mayo Grocer Tamales
I have a serious crush on the green chicken tamales that Cinco de Mayo sells. Finally checked it out - having to navigate god-awful construction and road closure - and I will be back. I tried the fresh tortillas - good. The beans- same. Same, same for the chicken verde, but the tamales. OHMYGOD. And they are...$2.00. And huge. And the red pork ones are very good also. Did I say $2? I almost feel guilty.
Try them. Go down the alley and park next door - they are hurting for business with construction. You will NOT be disappointed.
38th and Nicollet. They also have a good bakery -the churros were excellent and an interesting meat market.
I apologize for forgetting the address. You are correct, it is difficult to see from the intersection of 38th and Nicollet. There is a parking lot on the south side of the building - but it may be inaccessible due to construction. There is parking behind the building on the corner - next door - use the alley east of the intersection.
I have been a fan of their fantastic chicken tamales for a while now, but yesterday I tried the shredded pork. The flavor was fantastic. Now I want to try everything they have. It is definitely worth the trouble to get there.
