Downtown tamales or tacos?

tttt | Mar 11, 2008 04:38 PM

Does anyone know of a place to get tamales in downtown Manhattan?

I just want some authentic cheese/pork/chicken tamales with corn/masa wrapped in leaves. I know some east village shops sell them for like $3, but I just want the cheap ones for like $1 up in washington heights, etc...

I know that there is a taco truck supposedly at 14th and 8th maybe in the evenings. But, I want someplace further downtown. I don't want a restaurant, just a lady on the street selling them or a taco truck. I just want like $1 or $2 tamales, but they are of course mostly in sunset park, spanish harlem, jackson heights, other small mexican neighborhoods, etc....

please email me suggestions!
