July 2012: Tamales History

Warning, this blog might be harmful to your waistline.

Take a holiday to Mexico and you’ll have the chance to tuck into a wide range of tasty cuisine that draws on a number of influences. At Cyclone Anaya we are known for several signature Mexican dishes and our Jumbo Margarita drinks. One delicacy that is probably unlike anything else you have ever tried before is our Lobster Enchiladas or our Jumbo Crab Nachos.

Another option is to order our Besty’s Tamales that don’t disappoint and is an iconic Mexican dish. Did you know – Dating back to pre-Columbian times, these consist of steamed packets of corn dough containing either a sweet or savoury filling that are then wrapped in either banana leaves or corn husks. The size of the tamal you eat, as well as the filling inside it, varies depending where in Mexico you are.
