You can probably tell by now I'm not a big fan of chain restaurants. Sure, I eat at my fair share of them...but rarely are they memorable. I like the small restaurants, the ones with character...and of course great food! Hidden Gem will be a regular entry on the blog. One restaurant will be highlighted...a quick, short take on a place that's already proven itself in the art of awesome food. And if you think Hidden Gem begins and ends in Houston, you're wrong...stay tuned for other cities!
Restaurant: Alamo Tamale & Taco
Location: 809 Berry Road http://www.alamotamale.com/
Tables: Maybe 5 (in the porch out front). This is a stand, order and get out place.
Specialty: Well...guess it's in the name. Breakfast tacos and tamales are great...maybe not the best but darn close. They are a little higher in price than most places, but portions are bigger. Highly recommend anything pork...and I never met an egg there I didn't like.
Chance of getting food poisoning: LOW. Clean place, and I've never gotten sick.
