Tamales Monterrey Staff Pick

Price: $-$$

On Friday and Saturday evenings, keep your eyes open for a rainbow-striped umbrella in the parking lot between Mike's Taqueria Express and Caminos de Michoacan. A man and woman can be found standing underneath it selling Mexican corn and tamales. Mexican corn comes smothered in mayonnaise, rolled in cotija cheese, sprinkled with cayenne pepper, and doused with lime juice. It's made to order, and I really can't think of a better way to spend $3. Adjacent to the corn stand is a pick-up with coolers full of pork and chicken tamales resting on the tailgate. They sell for $7 a dozen.
