Looking for trays of 10+ tamales in the East Bay

Gremolata | Apr 27, 2008 07:09 AM

Hi All -

Can anyone recommend a place to buy tamales in the East Bay -- specifically, some kind of quasi-bulk order? I have friends with a new baby, who likely have zero energy to cook, and I'd like to bring them some food. I'm searched this board for tamale recommendations, and most of the favorites are carts run by Guatemalans (e.g. on International Boulevard, between 48th and 49th). This would be fine -- great, in fact -- if you think that they would be able to prepare a larger order, but otherwise are there some markets that you would recommend? I live in Berkeley, so I will probably check Mi Tierra (San Pablo right off University) as first try.

Thanks very much.
