Good Golly Tamale

image

Matt and I have been wanting to try Good Golly Tamale for quite some time now, and we finally got to sink our teeth into their amazing, made-from-scratch tamales for dinner on Tuesday! Their hours are Monday through Friday from 11AM to 4PM plus at the Market Square Farmer’s Market and additional events throughout the community.

Love the creativity of the wreath!

I made my way over during my lunch break, and boy was the weather beautiful! I decided to grab a La Croix Coconut from their drink selection. I had been wanting to try it ever since Kath mentioned it on KERF. It’s not my favorite flavor, but it was refreshing all the same.

These adorable cats and ice cream cones greet you as you first walk in, and they are made by Beth Meadows of With Bear Hands. I have one of her cats, but I still want to snag an ice cream cone!

I love their decor and vibe! The turquiose caught  my eye immediately, which I’m sure doesn’t come as a surprise. 😉

More of Beth’s artwork along with this super fun bench with tons o’ pillows.

Matt and I decided to get two lunch plates and added another tamale to each so we could try four of the five flavors.

This collage behind the counter is quirky, fun, and perfect.

I love this display, and I hope to one day incorporate something like it in our home! The vintage poster is so neat, and I love the shelves.

Once Matt was home from work, we began plating our delicious noms. We chose to split the Queso Poblano and Chicken Tinga for dinner, and we split the Classic and Thai Chicken for today’s lunch. We scored big time!

Still wrapped all snug in their corn husks.

The sides were so perfect, and check out that beautiful pink of the curtido! It’s an El Salvadorian style fermented cabbage dish.

An up-close shot. The collard greens had the perfect amount of smoky flavor without being overwhelming.

We combined our beans and rice, and here they are topped with their lovely salsa.

Matt and I were “mmm’ing” our way throughout our meal. We felt pleasantly full without being overly so, and we both agreed it is always such a treat to enjoy locally made food. We love supporting local, and the people behind Good Golly Tamale have most certainly perfected their craft. Please stop by their store or their cart at the market. You will not be disappointed!
