Has Anybody Seen the Mexican Embassy Tamale Lady?
The ML Team noticed the The Tamale Lady has been missing quite a bit from outside of the Mexican Embassy (39th btw. Madison & Park) since we (re)visited her in August. A reader was also wondering where she went, and emailed to inquire if she is still selling tamales in this location. Speculation arose that the new (and licensed) Antojitos Mexicanos cart might have something to do with her disappearance. We asked the folks at Antojitos Mexicanos if they had seen her, and they said she had come earlier in the day for only a few hours. Have you seen her around these past few weeks in front of the Mexican Embassy? If so… what time and day? We’re all for new Mexican carts… but not if it chases away our beloved tamales.
