With interest in New Mexican food up (according to their data), tamales (stuffed corn-based dough that’s steamed) are now their latest list.

This “all-time list” of “top tamales” was compiled by identifying businesses in the “food and restaurants categories on Yelp” with a large concentration of reviews mentioning “tamale”.


Then those places were ranked using factors like “total volume and ratings of reviews” mentioning the dish.
