Mama's Hot Tamales

Another restaurant to try: Mama's Hot Tamales Cafe in Westlake. This one was featured in a "Best cheap meals under $20" article that I saw. Here's the bio:

"Mama's Hot Tamales Cafe in a non-profit restaurant/community center in MacArthur Park dedicated to helping local residents learn to cook and sell tamales. One side of the shop is a bookstore that sells indigenous arts and crafts while the other side functions as a restaurant and organic coffee shop. The place is bright and airy--the wooden tables are painted in electric blues, yellows and oranges and engraved with suns and winding vines. The menu offers tasty aguas frescas and tortas on soft, fluffy bread; but the culinary superstars are the homemade tamales, which are stuffed with fresh ingredients like cheese, green chilies, chicken and mushrooms and served with perfectly piquant house hot sauce."

Find them at 2122 West Seventh Street in Los Angeles, 90057. Their phone is 213-487-7474.
