Tamale Undergound

Every saturday afternoon a car pulls up in the alley behind where I work, and all the dishwashers and cooks race to the back door to get in line for some of the best tamales around. Everything is served out of the trunk of a car, kept warm or cold using various ingenious methods.

Also available are tacos, quesadillas, mexican soda and a strange super milky sweet hot chocolate type beverage that's not for everyone.

Saturday is a super busy day too - I've definitely burned somebody's $800 lunch while waiting in line for tamales, but it's worth it.

They haven't been around for a while, I'm a little worried that my post got someone in trouble! They literally sell them out of the back of a car.

There's a great mexican food cart in University City though, around 37th & walnut ( i think?) great quesadillas and tacos, no tamales though.
