    Yvolina, the tamale lady at the Pilsen Market (Sundays, June-October) lists 23 varieties. Most are Oaxacan style, wrapped in banana leaves. She doesn't have them all at any given time but if you get there early there will be a huge selection. I actually gave you half of one of her tamales a little over a year ago. Mike Sula wrote about her a few months ago, singling out her spinach and mushroom version. I never was lucky enough to try that one but still agree she makes some of the best around. Here are a couple of her tamales—pork in a spicy red sauce and chicken in some sort of mole, both terrific.

    Unfortunately the market is closed for the season (last Sunday was the final day) but I think you could get in touch with her if you need a large order.
