We all have our favorite tamales (mine's from the random tamale man that drops by my mom's office occasionally). If your favorite tamales are from a licensed restaurant in Santa Ana, you want might want to let them know that they can enter a city-sponsored contest to determine Santa Ana's best tamales.
The city's taking applications until November 13. To be eligible, you need to be a licensed restaurant in Santa Ana. The tasting will take place at the city's Plaza Navideña event on December 12. Winners and runners up will be announced the same day.
For the application, and application instructions, click here.
If you don't want to wait that long to decide who you want to buy tamales from, check out Gustavo's 2014/2013/2007 Where to Buy Tamales for the Holidays List.
