Mama's International Tamales

Normally a dining room is nothing more than a dining room, but the cheerful space at Mama's International Tamales, with its brightly colored furniture and Latino artwork adorning the wall, is simultaneously a dining room and a classroom. The entire team under manager Sandi "Mama" Romero consists of low- and moderate-income culinary apprentices from Los Angeles's central region. Each day, the group puts her instructions into practice as they create authentically presented food from the Americas for their customers, while enriching their kitchen education.

The restaurant's namesake tamales are made from scratch and infused with flavors from a variety of Latin American countries. Other specialties include quesadillas with ingredients such as asada or spinach and mushrooms, as well as tostadas made with homemade tortillas and fillings such as chicken, tofu, and ceviche. Vegan cheese is also available to replace dairy cheese in any of the restaurant’s dishes or on days when dairy cheese refuses to come out of its dressing room.

Customer Reviews

I honestly LOVE the food here. It is reasonably priced, VERY fresh and really tasty. :)!!!

The service was excellent. The location interesting. The customers are a great mix of Los Angeles and beyond. Hard to improve on the fantastic tasting Tamales. Perhaps my only suggestion -- tables and chile/condiments could be better managed; as far as availability and clean up.

The service was very good. I called to see if they had parking and they said to call them when I arrived so they would open the gate in the back of the restaurant to park. The food was interesting and tasty.
