Salvadoran Tamales in Los Angeles: Banana Leaf!

docgradusadparnassum | Feb 6, 201508:33 AM

I love tamales wrapped in banana leaves, but they are so rare to come across. When I was in Mexico, it was so easy to find these everywhere; they were referred to as tamales oaxaquenos in the capital; and I gorged myself. I love the wetness and the color that the leaves impart. Also, I'm Vietnamese and we love anything done in a banana leave.

Any suggestions?
