Both of Factory Tamal’s LES and EV locations serve about twenty-five different sandwiches on ciabatta heros, including an excellent torta de quesillo with avocado, Oaxaca cheese, and papalo herbs. But you should also know that no meal from Factory Tamal is complete without a tamale. They’re relatively small and you’ll disappoint yourself (and us) if you don’t try at least one.
