Williams Sonoma Tamales
Spicy food has a tendency to whip me into a verbal frenzy. (As well a sensory overload of yum). Problem is, making spicy Mexican food is, well, something I have tendency to fail at (see my inch thick tortillas). There are Mexican places in town, but I haven't found a good tamale in town...enter the internet. Hello Tamale. (isn't that what the internet is for after all?)
Amazing fresh and mostly organic mexican food. My favorite vendor at the SF Ferry Building Farmers' Market. In Northern California you can find some of their products in stores/markets.
