Best Tamales Phoenix 2011 - Molly's Tamales
Molly's Tamales is a small mom 'n' pop shop in the heart of Glendale that features a huge variety of tamales, from the traditional to the more exotic salmon or nopalito. There are even a couple of sweet tamales to satisfy the dessert-lover, like "roxy road" (choco-mallow) or pineapple with raisins. All of Molly's Tamales are made lard- and shortening-free to keep them light, moist, and not too bad for you. Molly's offers a wide variety of vegetarian tamales and even a couple of vegan options, such as the black bean, corn, and chipotle chile. It all may sound hoity-toity for the humble tamale, but the flavor of these masa bombs will more than sway your opinion.
