It's the most wonderful time of the year -- for tamales, of course. Tamales are a year round food, but take on special importance during the holidays here in Southern California. That's why I put out the call on Twitter the other day, asking folks to give their pick for best tamales in L.A. Here are some responses:
@1PrincessWombat: Lilliana's on Cesar Chavez-just like abuelita used to make!
@Loteriagrill: is it wrong to say our tamales? :) Menu and order form are on the website. We have till New Year's. loteriagrill.com
@AllAboutTheDash: Gloria's Cafe in Culver City.

@mrsproflacroix: Tamales Lilianas, 4629 Cesar Chavez
