Best Tamale - 2005
Readers' Choice: Tamale Kitchen
Chef Jamey Fader's menu changes with the seasons at Lola, his hot coastal-Mexican eatery. You can always count on several fish entrees as well as pork and beef, all boasting top-quality ingredients presented in fresh, and refreshing, ways. And now you can count on meaty surprises -- barbecued beef! -- inside the housemade tamales that are served up on Tamale Tuesdays. Just four bucks buys you a tamale that's an entire meal, and shows the same care that Fader takes with his more involved items. He's the masa of our universe.
