Vegan tamales to die for!

4 Posted on 03 / 10 / 2011

I actually had one of their vegan blue corn tamales at Adobe Rose B&B. It was my first tamale, and the B&B chose it because I have an allergy to cilantro and the vegan tamale is cilantro-free. Well, I could have easily eaten a dozen of them! MMMMM!!! I can't wait until I'm in Tucson again because I will seriously go home with a dozen of their vegan tamales. My boyfriend also had one and he said it's the best he's had.

Pros: Vegan, Delicious, High Quality
Cons: Only in Tucson

Great food, great prices

Tucson Tamale Company is one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson. All tamales are lard-free and gluten-free. They also sell packs of frozen tamales to take home, including dessert tamales. Their menu rotates, but you can check what tamales will be available on their website. Tucson Tamale Company is a local business and is extremely vegetarian-friendly. Most menu items are either vegetarian or vegan & are clearly marked as such. They are also very affordable with prices starting at only $2.95 for 1 tamale with salsa! I wish they were open later than 7PM, though. It is not always easy for us to make it there before they close. If they were open until 9PM or 10PM like most other restaurants we would be able to go there more often.

Pros: Excellent food, Great value, Friendly staff
Cons: Short hours, Small seating space

Our household favs are the New Dehli and the pumpkin desert tamale they had at holiday time. Great tamales at really good prices!

This place is great! It's a great place to go if you have a family full of omnis, vegetarians and vegans like mine! I have tried almost all of their vegan options and every single one is delicious! I believe all their sides are vegan too! Their prices are really great! What are you doing? Go! Go now! haha

Pros: great options, big a$$ tamales, yummy!
Cons: open only 10-7

Great food at a great price

This is one of my favorite places in Tucson. It's not vegetarian, but is unusually Veg-friendly and specifically makes Vegan Tamales. I've become addicted to the Curry Tamale and the medium green salsa. And the prices are cheap enough that I don't feel bad about going there often. You can also get tamales to go in easy to microwave bags. Their hours are not wide open, so check their website before you go.

Pros: Great Value, Amazing food, Friendly staff
Cons: Not Vegetarian, Short hours of operation
