Tamales; Red, Green or with Rajas
Every SATURDAY at 10am, a Mexican family (husband and wife - Rey & Emperatriz) arrives at the Super Bodega in SLC, UT to sell fresh handmade tamales (they're up all Friday night cooking). When presented with the steaming pots there are a few choices to make: cheese, chicken or pork, also, corn husk or banana leaf. Top your selection with the fresh Green Salsa (not really picante but packs big flavor with a mince of cilantro, red onion and garlic). After eating your fill, visit the bodega to buy a large variety of vegetables at wholesale prices. You'll never need to pay retail supermarket prices, again! Best avocado prices anywhere!
This is one of those moments where you wonder how you were transported to another country and another time. Welcome to Mexico, would you like some mango juice to finish your meal? The Super Bodega, 6th South 6th West, SLC UT
