Best tamales in Chicago - Edit

Yvolina's Tamales is the best in Chicago. Their mole, which is vegan, was named the best mole at the Festival Mole de Mayo 2017 in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. I've had the red mole - they also have a green style - several time and love it.

They offer vegan, vegetarian, and meat options. The tamales are Oaxacan style, which are wrapped in a banana leaf and are about twice the size as the type you find in corn husks. This is a good to know when ordering. The vegan options change, but vary between kale, quinoa, spinach and mushroom, eggplant, and poblano.

They also have delicious, fresh juices available.

Pros: Large portions, Award-winning mole, Excellent service

Cons: Hours
