I love tamales.
Just yesterday I stopped in one of our oldest little family-run Mexican restaurants and ordered a tamale and a root beer.
The owner told me that since they are so popular, they have started taking orders from the townsfolk. I'll definitely get in on that. They want $2 apiece, and I'm more than happy to pay that since they are so good. Lots of corny masa flavor and a decent amount of filling.
