Woodside tamal vendor

Joe MacBu | Mar 1, 200709:23 PM     6

I just want to give a shout out to the tamal lady under the Woodside #7/LIRR tracks. She's got some fine tamales. I've enjoyed the rajas y pollo and Oaxaqueno versions. Most are $1, the Oaxaqueno es muy grande and $3. I haven't tried the queso tamal that Eric Eto wrote about 3.5 years ago ( http://www.chowhound.com/topics/24084... ).

She's out around noon on weekdays, under the overpass next to the fruit vendor. I like that I usually get the tamales when they're still quite soft and haven't hardened to a dense mass. Maybe it's because I get them soon after she's set up...or she's just got that touch.

She's also got hot champurrado on those frosty days.
