At my mother's work, the cleaning woman, Mexicana, sells them privately as well. I could eat a whole dozen of those pork filled ones in one sitting.
Seems like the best ones IMHO are the family-made tamales, usually "tamalería" style of store-front, rather than a restaurant.
That's the way it seems here on the Gulf of Texas. We have one man who comes into our Eagle's Aerie regularly selling pretty good tamales. I've bought as many as six or eight dozen at a time, depending on my alcohol intake. Those I used to get from a relative of a coworker out at DuPont were much better.
I intend to order a dozen or so plain tamales, no sauce, no cheese, in the shuck, the next time I eat at La Brisas here in Bacliff. I believe I'll forego my usual salted frozen Margarita and have a cerveza instead.
Wow. Thank you so much, dickestep. I will go to La Brisa next month, thanks to you. After my girlfriend's peruvian archaeology conference in Austin, we'll be driving to the Gulf Coast
Now we know one of the destinations! And I WILL order a few dozen tamales, pack them in blue ice and next day air them to my home, hehe. [/ludicrous?]
Any other sights, foods, or sensory intake to partake in around that area (Galveston, Bacliff)?
Thanks for the original thread-post!
