“Moist” is a divisive word, but there’s no better way to describe the tamales at Yvolina’s. Well, along with fluffy, tender, delicious…you get the picture. Instead of cornhusks, the tamales at this deceptively large counter-service spot come steamed and wrapped in banana leaves, which keeps them soft and gives the masa a faint earthy flavor. There are a variety of fillings to choose from, including multiple vegan options, and you can get them with or without mole, along with a side of rice and beans. The green chicken is juicy, but there’s no wrong decision whether you order one with poblano and cheese, pork, or even spinach.
