Tamales in OC for a party on December 3rd

Pate | Nov 15, 2006 04:43 PM

Hi 'hounds,

I know you'll be able to help me out. I'm having a tamale party for the neighborhood ladies on Sunday, Dec. 3rd. When I did this last year I bought all the "stuff" and thought we'd make them but everyone just wanted to drink margaritas and eat. So this year I'm purchasing the tamales and renting a margarita machine.

My questions are: Do you know where I can buy good tamales in OC? I'm in South OC. Also, do I need to call and place an order in advance or do I just show up? I'll need about 30 of them. Lastly can I purchase them now and freeze them and then thaw and reheat prior to the event?

My MIL recommended Diana's in Gardena which is fine if I can't find a place closer but I guess the same questions apply.

Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.
