The Succulent Tamales at a Tamalada

Tamalada is a Tamale Party!

Let me tell you about the amazing and exquisite tamales,

Base on studies, the tamale existed before the tortilla creation.
Tamales are the most extraordinary and wonderful food for Mexican and Latin American cuisine, wonder why? simple, because you can combine the most extensive variety of ingredients, meaning full variety of flavors that are native from every region. Adding that it is a tradition in special and social ceremony of coexistence. This make the tamales, the most emblematic food where you gather families and friends to live and share together this beloved meal.
There is no better design food than a tamale, because it is wrapped with natural materials like corn husk or banana leaves that serves for cooking, besides wrappers are large, flexible, waterproof and decorative. Wrappers also works as a dish, it is disposable and sometimes you do not need utensil, because you can carry it directly to enjoy it.

First love in food was tamales!

I fell in love with tamales since my childhood, full of nice memories, when watching my mom along with relatives and friends, making chicken mole tamales and sweet tamales. What a Tamalada!
The Tamalada experience is unequaled, remains a memorable footprint that endures in each person’s time. And that invites to do the next tamalada sooner.

The tamale is an irresistible meal by its texture, aroma, flavor and colorful.
The increasing demand for organic food ingredients, and the exponential rise in vegetarian and vegan products, have also produced tamales of this type, like the yummy vegan tamales. Vegetables are no longer to be consigned as a side order, they are the main course. For this brings to your plate this yummy meal.

Restaurantes Mexicanos Any – An Amazing Story

My good friend Jose Ramon and his wife Ana have a vision of promoting Mexican culture while representing the authentic flavor of their regional food. That vision is reflected in their beautiful restaurant, Restaurantes Mexicanos Any.
Located in the wonderful port of Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo, Mexico, the restaurant opened its doors for the first time nearly 30 years ago, beginning by offering tamales and atoles, and adding more delicious dishes throughout the years.

Restaurantes Mexicanos Any has become a local icon of Mexican food, an achievement reached by Jose Ramon and Ana through great effort, dedication, and passion for their origins. Naturally, they take great pride in providing an excellent experience for each of their guests.

“We keep learning day by day,” Jose Ramon says, “with many falls, but always having the strength to get back up again. We do what not everyone is willing to do—sacrifice, stay disciplined, value teamwork. Working more than eighteen hours a day is exhausting, but at the end, you feel the pleasure of being able to SERVE, SERVE, SERVE! That is an invaluable satisfaction.”

I remember visiting the restaurant in early 2017, the winter weather making the hot Mexican dishes even more inviting. Jose Ramon and Ana were splendid hosts, offering a delicious dish of enchiladas garnished with aromatic rice and beans. Obsessed with the avocado, I dove into the layers of creamy green flesh.
As if that wasn’t enough of a flavor boost, the waitress also came to our table with a succulent chicken mole tamale, the texture and flavor, so unique!
The atmosphere of the restaurant and the presentation of the two dishes created a most memorable experience at the exquisite Restaurantes Mexicanos Any.
A must visit!
