Just outside Discolandia Market, a new vendor is selling tamales that rworange says are some of the best she’s had. The masa is “moist, but not too lardy.” The chicken is “lovely, with lots of stewed meat and a nice jalapeño kick.” The above-ordinary pepper and cheese is “intensely hot, with a red sauce.” Weakest, but still pretty good, is the pork tamale, with ground pork in a “mouth-tingly” red sauce. The tamales are $1.50 each, and there is champurrado available, too.
