    Yummy the tacos look real good. ????

    I love tamales! Love how they served it in banana leaves.

      I think the banana leaves make them moister/softer. I prefer the drier type but these are a pretty darn good version. I’m always on the hunt for delicious tamales 🙂

  3. cool, i’ve never a tamale in a banana leaf. although the wet texture of the masa might be off putting.

      Hi CC – I also had the banana leaf wrapped tamales at El Salvador Pupuseria – they are different, but not too different. They are a lot moister, that’s for sure! Yeah, there are lots of good places in the hood. You just kind of have to wander around and go in places. The hipster free prices are always a plus!
