A Mexican friend told me it's traditional for Mexican families to serve tamales on Christmas Day, to make sure the children have something to unwrap.

ReapTheChaos: DownDaRiver: I have always, mostly always, found that its the small hole-in the-wall places have the best, most authentic foods. Goes for the carts and trucks to.

So very true.  Also, if the place if full of Mexicans, you know they have good Mexican food.


So pretty much any restaurant kitchen then?

There used to be an old Mexican lady in my old neighborhood that would go door-to-door selling tamales.

Curiously, all the neighborhood stray cats started going missing about the time she showed up.

When she got evicted, they found all the strays. Locked in a storage locker... with a bloody butcher block and cleaver.

True CSB. Happy holidays.

Uncle Tractor: What a christmas staple might look like in my corner of the world:


I have had both real tamales (TX), real bratwurst (WI) and real lutefisk (MN) while on choir tours in college. I could live on just brats and tamales the rest of my life if it meant never being in the same room as lutefisk again.

AverageAmericanGuy: doglover: Lorelle: I NEVER buy tamales from them. Not safe.

Food poisoning is one of those risks you can take when you're on vacation. No one dies from it, really. No one who isn't at risk already, anyway. Unless it's botulism.

Don't get botulism.

Good advice. Stay away from botulism.


Sensible, practical, keeps folk away from botox as well.

Those people hang out in grocery store parking lots in Messican neighborhoods (I was approched by one this afternoon). I NEVER buy tamales from them. Not safe.

Never seen them myself. But if I saw others, especially mexicans, buying from them. I would certianly try them.
I have always, mostly always, found that its the small hole-in the-wall places have the best, most authentic foods. Goes for the carts and trucks to.
Give em a try, you may spend an uncomfortable night in the bathroom here an there, doubt you'll die, but you may be happily suprised.


What's a little bloody diarrhea when there's the potential for a tasty morsel?

Elvis_Bogart: Out of all the Mexican food out there, the tamale is at the bottom of my list.  I just don't like the damn things.


Then you haven't tried enough authentic Mexican food. At least tamales are normal ingredients, just poorly arranged.
