As part of the Nachojawn HQ relocation I have much greater access to some underappreciated and lesser known comida Mexicana.
One spot is Los Amigos Market on the corner of 9th and Montrose.
I had a nice talk with the owner, who makes tamales daily and hypes his chips as superior to San Roman, due in part to the fact that he sea salts his chips.
The pico de gallo was fresh and bright – and the tinga tamale was superior to the pork, although I’m still partial to the Mole Poblano versions.
I’ll be back for the tacos or burritos, and maybe the homemade chorizo.
