Enrique and I went to the 2018 Tamal Fest hosted in Pilsen on Sunday. As we are not able to go to Mexico in December this year, I was looking forward to tamales and atole.
The entrance greeted us with festive flags.
Enrique and I enjoy some cheese samples. Thanks Gallito!
Lucha is just around the corner! Who is your favorite?
Beautiful embroidered dresses.
Lolitas caught my eye as the signs remind me of true Mexico style. Check out the way they wrote out the prices! I loved the fruit art too!!
Colorful cloths invite us over for fruit waters with Oaxaca style tamales and quesadillas.
Well, look at this! More Oaxaca style tamales to enjoy!! We enjoyed the chicken tamales with mole prepared in banana leaves. This was paired with the warm drink, atole de guayaba.
I tried to share the tamales with all of you in this shot. Can you taste them?
Pina coladas?? Yes, please!!
Wait! What are these? Churros!!
A promise of future laughs. Free parking?? In Chicago?? What are you doing Friday night? Catching a comedy show of course!
A rainbow of cotton candy!!
A new generation displays traditional dance!
