Search for the Perfect Tamal

John | Oct 4, 2002 03:21 PM

I used to joke that I couldn't leave Azusa (10 miles east of Pasadena) because I would miss Johnny Luna's tamales too much. Faithfully, for decades he sold only the most tender and delicious tamales every Saturday and Sunday morning from his little storefront. I've been spoiled, and now he's retired and closed his shop.

Let me know if you know a really good place. Even east L.A., Whittier, El Monte aren't out of my driving range.
