The dish of the month for San Francisco for Dec 2012 is tamales. Here's a link to the voting thread: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/879780
The goal is to collectively try as many versions of tamales as possible during the month of December! So let's start exploring and eating—report back with reviews and photos.
All types of tamales are fair game, and there are lots to try!! Looking forward to seeing what people find.
