Panaderia Oaxaqueno: tamales next door

Leucadian | Mar 15, 2008 06:06 PM

I was at PO this morning to pick up some pastries, and there's a new tamale shop two doors down the street. Brand new, opened today, all the appliances are shiny stainless, and the floor is newly tiled. There will be limited seating but it wasn't ready today. I'm not sure of the relationship with PO, but they are family or friends or something. KR, you're a better reporter than I, as witnessed by the fact that I forgot the name. Something Tamales.

The premise of the place is breakfast: tamales (beef, pork, chicken, rajas&cheese, pineapple, strawberry), tacos, birria de res, and pozole (the last two are family portions, 32 oz to go, with rice and tortillas and salsa/onion/cilantro/limes). Also breakfast plates huevos rancheros, machaca, etc. The tamales I had were good, and the birria was delicious. Big chunks of beef in a rich broth. Prices were a little high I think ($1.75 for tamales, $10 for the birria package). The young woman at the register is the daughter of the owner/cook.

Also, PO has expanded to include a bigger sit-down area, looks nice.
