Tamales, Tamales, Tamales...

OK, it's been a few years since I went on a serious tamale hunt in Manhattan. I've done a few in Brooklyn and elsewhere since then, but not here.

So... where is the best place for tamales? I'm so tired of dense, dry tamales.

for the purposes of this search, I'm really only interested in mexican tamales. Second, there are a few varieties that are my absolute favorites, but I'm not sure where I can find them in Manhattan (oaxaquenos and rajas con queso). Anyone know where I can find those varieties?

Regardless, I'm interested in the best mexican tamales anywhere in Manhattan. So... where have your best tamales come from in Manhattan?

Man, I can smell them already.
