Guatemalan Paches

I'm in Guatemala for the summer, enjoying fresh paches, and I'm worried that they are unavailable in NYC. If you haven't heard of it, it's like a tamal but with potato instead of corn, steamed in a plantain leaf. Anyone know of a place that has them? I know that Tierras Centro Americanas has authentic Guatemalan tamales such as chuchitos, but I don't think they have paches. I'm too lazy/busy to make them. Any tips?
