What You'll Get
Though coveting thy neighbor's wife or underground sprinkler system is beyond the pale, longing for a mouthful of his cuisine is an understandable desire. Today's Groupon satisfies desires to eat from the table of our nation's neighbor: for $10, you get $20 worth of tamales and drinks at Casa de Tamales in Fresno. Specializing in traditional and gourmet tamales ($2.49–3.49 each), Casa de Tamales makes their corn masa from scratch in-house. Traditional selections from the menu, based on recipes passed down from the owner's grandmother, include chicken with mole, shredded beef, and jalapeno and cheese. The restaurant serves a meatless myriad of vegetarian tamales, such as the soy chorizo con papas or the portobello and asparagus. Casa de Tamales serves their corn-husk-clad treats individually, in orders of six, by the dozen, or as the main attraction in their tamale combination plates ($6.99–7.99). For dessert, the restaurant infuses their billowy sweet corn masa with chocolate, fruit, and notes from secret admirers.
