Default Handmade tamales in the Hampton Roads area

(and I'm not talking about those frozen things at Trader Joe's either - nasty!)

I'm looking for Christmas tamales and am coming up emptyhanded. I wanted to make them myself but I'm running out of time. Does anyone know where I can buy good, handmade tamales by the dozen here in the Hampton Roads area? And while we're on that topic, any good carnicerias, tortillerias, or panederias in the area? I'm looking anywhere from Virginia Beach to Williamsburg.

Tortilleria LA Morena is in Newport News, 11710 Jefferson Ave. It's near Port Warwick and City Center areas in the Food Lion shopping center. You can make large special orders there - I just don't like their prices.

Default tamales

we just had some for xmas from this restaurant in the back of the

"Grand Market" on Newtown Rd. After having tamales from the chicago area we were very disappointed. The chicken tamales had the whole piece of chicken in them including the bone and the skin and the masa was way too thick. if anyone knows a better place i would like to try. has anyone ever heard of tamales being made this way?

The tamales are $2 a piece or for around $7 you can get three with rice, beans, chips and salsa.

The tacos are my favorite, they make the corn tortillas to order and you can pick meats prepared in about 10 different ways.
