NEW YORK CITY | Factory Tamal opened unassumingly in 2017 and very quickly built a cult following amongst those in the know as the place to go for some of the best tamales in New York City.

The small Lower East Side is owned and operated by Mexico-born Fernando Lopez who makes his tamales the way many no longer do – by nixtamalizing corn into masa on site each day, the traditional Mayan way. The result is tamales that live up to their reputation, based on childhood memories of his grandmother’s tamales and input from his mother, wife, and grandmother-in-law. The tamales are fluffy, light and crumbly, with just the right proportion of fillings. Try the rajas con queso, with jalapeño, chilli strips and onion, and the mole poblano with rich chocolatey mole, chicken, chipotle, and salsa verde.

As well as tamales, Factory Tamal also sells an assortment of things that cater to locals and regulars – think pastrami panini, salads, BLTs and egg sandwiches. It’s all very delicious, tasty, and affordable. Whether it’s a full meal, or just a snack while passing through, a stop at Factory Tamal is highly recommended.

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
