I cant believe that Taqueria Los Hermanos isn't on this list. They have some of the best Tamales ever! The one in Tucker is consistently great...check them out : http://www.taquerialoshermanos.com/four-co…
I see some of these people do Poblano and Cheese tamales and I have had some of the above mentioned and they are very good. With that being said, do any of y'all know any people that make tamales that are "Refried Bean, Jalapeño, and Cheese" Poblano is fine for the pepper, too. We used to have a woman (years ago in Dallas, TX) that made the most incredible ones for us and since we've moved here we haven't found anyone that makes anything with the refried beans. Any help would be most appreciated! :)
Some of the BEST Tamales I have ever eaten are at Rico's on East Atlanta Road near Stockbridge. GREAT Mexican Food and Excellent Service.
How could Buford highway farmers market be left out? Their food court at males have the best masa I have found in Atlanta.
I saw that Fox Brothers had chicken tamales this past weekend, we couldn't get to the Big Tex location nor the Fox Bros. BBQ spot to get any but the pictures looked right. Thanks for the tamale expose..
Perla is a short walk from work, so it's become difficult to resist just eating there every day. I had no idea about their connection to Cous Cous--that explains their odd (but delicious!) Med-Mex selections like falafel and shawarma tacos.
You forgot to mention Red Cactus Café Tamales & Empanadas. Great tamales in flavors like Chorizo & Goat Cheese, Pork & Tomatillo, even two vegetarian types. www.redcactuscafe.com.
If you're in the Kennesaw area, best tamales by far are Noemi's Tamales - well worth the drive if you aren't: http://www.noemistamales.com/
KILL IT!! Love you guys!
As an attorney I can't help but agree about the weighted legislation in Ga., however in regards to a comparative analysis of micro-breweries to micro-wineries, clearly the breweries have a more favorable stance especially within the city of Atlanta. I do enjoy being able to get a growler of beer but I would prefer to have the option to appease my pallet with good wine from the winery without having to go an excessive distance to get it. I think this article is very informative and concise. I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of such a day when my yearning for a local micro-winery will be supported by state and municipal legislature. Keep up the good fight Urban Vines and know your supporters are here.
The Gorgeous One usually plays beer pong and flip cup with high gravity beers because my beers need to be as strong as my 235lbs of twisted steel and sex appeal.
Love it! So excited! Hope you will also cater to lunch!
i'm really hoping the salt and pepper shrimp from octopus bar make their way over to Lusca!
steve, you may want to lay off of the passion to create greatness for a while. sounds like it might have pushed you past the legal limit.
A showdown w/out Haru Ichiban is like a PGA tournament w/out Tiger Woods. Inconsequential.

"His passion to create greatness is so intoxicating"
Steve Josovitz you are bottom feeding scum, the proverbial vulture that circles people businesses when they are on the downward spiral. Take you self promoting post to hell with you. You have a VIP reservation waiting for you.
expanding to Alpharetta? It's the beginning of doom.
As the Commercial Restaurant & Real Estate Broker who did the deal at GIO all I can say is that Giovanni Di Palma was a class act… He was the consummate professional, respectful, and easy to work with. His passion to create greatness is so intoxicating. Every time I visit I am bombarded by his enthusiasm to show me a new idea, concept or new dish he is creating. His brain is so far down the road to other concepts your just along for the ride with no choice but to fasten your seat belt. Giovanni Di Palma ROCKS…. Steve Josovitz, The Shumacher Group, inc.
I don't think the ramen is still available at Miso in the old 4th Ward. I understand the owner, Guy Wong plans to open a full-time Ramen place in the near future though.
Did anyone try it? and how did it stack up to the Ramen here?
I tried the ramen at the westside Raku, It was enjoyable. The broth lacked a little dimension but the pork belly was exquisite.
