The menu at this Day of the Dead-themed Pilsen storefront strays about as far from the wares of the Tamale Guy as you can imagine, featuring mash-ups like the Chicago Beef, a tamale filled with Italian beef, provolone, and giardiniera; the Juicy Lucy, a cheeseburger tamale served with house-made "special sauce"; and a chocolate-peanut butter dessert tamale served with whipped cream. I played it straight on my visits, sampling two types filled with Cuban-style slow-roasted pork (both disappointingly dry—avoid) and a tamale with roasted peppers and goat cheese (on one occasion dry and bland, another quite tasty). Whichever way you go, a combo of two tamales, rice, beans, and a fountain drink is a steal at ten bucks. And the beans, black or garbanzo, are worth ordering by themselves, especially the latter, which are made from a family recipe and stewed with five kinds of pork—it’s Cuba’s answer to cassoulet, and just as comforting and delicious. New on the menu is another monster: the Nachomale, chips with cheese sauce, beans, a tamale, and pickled jalapeños.
