Inspired by the thread on tamales east SGV to west IE:
I live in Westwood but don't mind driving towards downtown late morning or after golf. Where should I go to try great tamales. I'm a single guy, so I hope I can sample a few without buying a dozen.
I sometimes play golf at Hansen Dam, in Pacoima. On Glen Oaks going from the 118, I see a little Mama's Tamales in a strip mall probably less than a mile from the freeway. Any good? (I would try some for the board but I'm a tamale novice, so mine would be an inexperienced opinion.)
