Mama’s Hot Tamales Cafe!

Mamas Hot Tamales!

Mama's Hot Tamales!

And one fantastic vegan tamale this is! I visited Mama’s Cafe  today and just quickly ran in to grab some tamales because I vaguely remembered they had vegan options. I thought, well if they don’t I’ll grab a drink and be on my way. The extremely nice and polite young gentleman informed me that they had one vegan tamale option today. After some small talk about veganism and his assurance that my tamales were indeed vegan I was off. When I arrived home I looked online to be extra sure my tamales were vegan and was very pleasantly surprised as to the info I found online. This place is very vegan friendly (check out their menu!) and is part of a community revitalization project and they help train people and…go check out their website for more info because all of the good things they are doing is just too long to list here! I definitely will be going back to try out more of their food. The tamale is black bean and chile and was wrapped in a banana leaf. Their sauce was mildly hot but complimented the tamale very nicely. I’m surprised I even got a good piture before I ate it up. If you are ever in the area, actually drive there if you live in LA, please go patronize this very vegan friendly establishment with vegan tamales!
