City Pages' Description

The best tamales in Minneapolis are right behind a plain glass door on the very corner of East Lake Street and Bloomington Avenue South in Mercado Central. Weekdays, try a chicken-green-chile tamale, a tube of lush, quivering corn meal batter with a heart of brisk tomatillos and stringent chiles. Or a red pork tamale, the corn meal turned a voluptuous maroon with smoky, potent chipotles, the filling as hot and dusky as a sun seen setting through a dust storm. Weekends, go for the lush and overabundant plantain-leaf tamales, which are so stuffed with meats and cheeses they're like a dinnertime piñata. At only a few pesos per treat, La Loma manages to hit all three of the magical triumvirate: Not just fast, cheap, and good, but fast, cheap and all-out fantastic.

    Try the oaxaqueño tamales. So so tasty!

    Rajas tamale with green salsa. For dessert order the elote with red salsa. Delicioso!

    Best Tamales in town. Try all of them and then take a siesta.
