Allow us to introduce you to some incredible tamales. Cafetal Quilombo is a counter service Mexican restaurant, and while you could get tacos or a burrito, you’re here for the tamales - especially the green chicken one doused in homemade salsa. This place also doubles as a coffee shop, so a creamy iced horchata latte is a thing that you can (and absolutely should) order along with your tamales.
