Meixue recently posted looking for tamales dulces in the Bay Area. I reported that I found those at Alemany Market too sweet, and that I'd like to find a good source, too.

While running errands yesterday, I picked up a few from the steamer at the counter at Casa Lucas, on 24th Street near Alabama. These have a nice level of sweetness and good flavor, but are marred by a fibrous texture, which seems to come from using overly mature corn kernels in the masa. I'll try these again in corn season to see if this changes, but for now I'll pass...
