Amazing tamales in South Slope

I was passing that place on 4th Ave and 10th street that used to be a Florist/Coffee shop. I don't know how long ago it switched over, but there was a sign out front for tamales. I got a Oaxaceno with chicken and green sauce, wrapped in banana leaves and foil. It was the best tamale I've ever had, including in Mexico. My fingers were freezing, but I had to stop right there on the sidewalk and eat the entire thing. It was amazing! I can't stop thinking about it!
