best Tamal Dulce (sweet tamale) in SF-bay area

inmandarin | Aug 31, 2007 09:48 AM

hey guys! what are your thoughts on the BEST quality tamal dulce in SF? "nothing new-wave, nothing fancy...." ONLY hard-core traditional homemade-like tamal specialists...or the kind that's prepared by sweet sweet old hispanic grandmas and aunties. how do these following places measure up (btw, i've never tried any of them):

-La Borinqueña Mex-icatessen
-Tamale Lady (mission)
-Roosevelt Tamale Parlor

Does La Palma make tamales? in an unrelated topic, i tried La Palma's homemade potato chips and gorditas last april and they were among the freshest i've had in a while. thanks to CH.

any help would be appreciated; thanks!
