Tamale Oaxaca stand at Maxwell St.

CMC | Aug 4, 2003 04:14 PM

I've had these tamales before and they're amazing. Yesterday they were sold out. While taking refuge from rain in their tent the owner told me they don't make them but get them from a wholesaler. Of course, the logical thing would have been to ask him where else I could find them but the monsoon outside distracted me.

Anybody have any thoughts on this? Wholesaler could just mean somebody's house. But it also could mean that these tamales can be found any day of the week in a specific place. I suppose it could mean both (or neither).
