The tamales sold at Ikeda's in Auburn are the best I've ever tasted, but they don't make them there. I know they're made somewhere in the Bay Area, and someone at Ikeda's told me that they get them at some place called "Nanna's (sp?) Kitchen", but I think that that they might have just made that up because I can't find a Nanna's Kitchen listed anywhere. Has anyone ever heard of Nanna'a Kitchen, or know the REAL source of Ikeda's tamales, or know somewhere else in the Bay Area that has great tamales (I've had the ones at Roosevelt and they're okay, but not on par with the ones sold at Ikeda's).
I don't want to take away business from Ikeda's, but the 150-mile trip isn't always practical when I have a tamale craving! Thanks for any assistance!
