While we where in Cabo I kept asking everyone where to find tamales. Diego at El Pescador told me to go down the street-headed towards Desperados and turn up the street. So we finish our dinner and headed out. The street is Morales and we ended up on the right side of the street just a short block and a half up from Desperados and we find Fabio with 2 large steaming pots with 6 different types of tamales. I only wanted cheese and jalapeno so I got two and took them back to our "home" and had one for lunch the next day. YUM! Fabio is there (just before the Milano store) in the evenings from 6PM to 6AM. Not sure if it's everyday but if you are craving tamales he has got them! I paid 30 pesos for 2 and they were large and filled. The masa was very good and were wrapped in corn husks-I am not a fan of the banana leaf wrappers. Another great sign was there were many locals eating them right there on the spot. Great to freeze and use as needed.
Also-just before you get to Fabio-same side of the street is the Churro guy. Fresh, warm churros. He has them in a six pack-crispy on the outside-moist on the inside that are really good. I picked up a 6 pack every time we were in the area. At 20 pesos for the pack I get a sugar fix and have extra to go with my coffee in the morn. There was also a single larger churro that he pushes onto a metal rod to create a hole in the churro then fills it with your choose of chocolate, creamy caramel or a fruit (looked like a berry) filling. I tried the caramel on top of one of my plain churros and it was good. Not sure what he charges for those.
Lastly, the fruit lady at the corner of Vincente and Lazaro Cardenas (by Baja Peppers and Jensens) gave me a huge foam cup on mixed cut fruits-cantalope,oranges, mango,pineapple, strawberries,coconut,cucumber,jicama, watermelon, papaya,with fresh lime squeezed over the top. It took my two days to finish it all. At 30 pesos-I will be back for more of that as well.
Since I have gotten the courage to eat from the street vendors this year-I want to know if there are any others that I should hunt down and try?
Oh how I miss Cabo right now~
