In front of the Grocery Outlet in Santa Rosa, there is a man with a card table set up, selling hot tamales out of a cooler . He has chicken, pork, beef, and jalapeno cheese-they are $1 each. I tried one chicken and one pork . Wrapped in cornhusk and then plastic, they were piping hot and good sized. The masa was moist, the pork was extra saucy, the chicken mild but spiced. With the tamales, I was given containers of sour cream and tomitillo salsa, a napkin, & little dish. One tamale made a decent lunch, two was a lot of food! Certainly Santa Rosa's best lunch bargain.

I was told that the tamales are for sale every day until 6,or, I suppose, until they run out.

Located at the west exit door of the Santa Rosa Grocery Outlet, 1116 4th St, Santa Rosa.
